Water companies hold a lot of power in today’s society. If they wanted to, they could really change the world for the better in less than a decade. Unfortunately, like many other powerful industries, they only care about making money; well, not all of them.
There’s one company based in Hawaii that cares about its consumers, the environment, and those less fortunate. Waiakea Water is the fastest-growing bottled water brand in the world. They launched in 2012 and quickly changed the bottled water industry with little effort. Even the fact that they’re based out of Hawaii is revolutionary.
It’s weird to think that no one tried to launch a bottled water brand in Hawaii before them. Hawaii is synonymous with nature and good vibes. Being the first put Waiakea Water ahead their competition from the first day. Since then, everyone is trying to be more like Waiakea Water.
While other companies claim their water is unique and people can’t live without it, Waiakea Water just packages their water and ships it. They don’t do anything to their water that nature hasn’t already done; it’s one of the reasons it’s considered some of the healthiest and freshest water in the world.
Waiakea Water even tastes different from other waters because they’re not adding or subtracting anything from it. Their water is filtered through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock and naturally infused with minerals before spurting out of springs all over the Mauna Loa volcano.
Once it’s above ground, Waiakea’s facility immediately packs it up and ships it all over the world. They factories are actually at the source so that it’s as pure as possible during packaging. They use special facilities that leave tiny carbon footprints, but they’re focused on creating factories that leave no footprint.
That dream is a step closer since they announced they’re switching their plastic to a 100 percent degradable plastic bottle. Their bottles will degrade in 15 years rather than the usual 1,000 years.
