Hawaii often promotes visions of paradise and tropical wonder. Her islands ae known more for producing exports of tropical fruits such as pineapples, but a new export, Waiakea Water, is set to be all the rage, and in a world where you can buy water from any part of the globe Waiakea Water has a few things that make it stand out.
One of the highlights of the water is the process by which its made. The water is filtered through volcanic rock from the Mauna Loa volcano. Benefits of filtration via volcanic rock is the addition of minerals, such as magnesium and calcium. Because of the location of where the water is produced, or rather its isolation, Waiakea Water also has the benefits of being a “pure” water, being perfectly safe to drink right from the source.
Another point of interest is the alkaline ph of the water. Waiakea Water has a natural ph of 8.8 making it clearly alkaline as opposed to acidic. The process by which Waiakea Water is made also allows the ph not to degrade over time. What this means for the average consumer is better hydration and potentially a countermeasure against acid reflux, among other benefits.
Lastly, we have the fact that this water is environmentally conscious. The key here is how sustainability is a focus on Waiakea Water. The bottle that the water is packaged in is many times more biodegradable than the average water bottle, and they are looking to have 100% biodegradable water bottles for 2018. Using rough numbers, the average bottle will take 1000 years to decompose, while Waiakea Water bottle will only take 15.
Water is accessible to the average American, off the tap, pretty much everywhere, yet bottled water still is consumed by the thousands. Whether is be for cleaner water or for taste it is clear that the bottles aren’t going anywhere fast. Waiakea Water is changing the game by creating its own niche in the water market, as well as giving back to the environment. It is no wonder in the water industry we see Waiakea Water on the rise.
