While most producers of filtered bottle Water promote and focus on their water’s quality and competitive cost, it is the bottle that has become the foremost focus of Waiākea Water. 100% RPET, (recycled polyethylene terephtalate,) composes each and every container of clear plastic. It is the number one universal way plastic containers can benefit environmental conscientiousness and bring about change for our ecological health, now and in the future. The company has found out that to produce regular plastic bottles, it takes 90% more water and 85% more energy than RPET processing!
While this is a great achievement, Waiakea Water pledges to aid in innovating the plastic industry as a whole by making RPET the norm for single beverage containers. This has come after years of landfill glut by plastics that are produced at break-neck speed to bring their beverage and solid products out to the consumer without thought of what happens to the container after the product is used. Waiakea Volcanic Water is ahead of its time and is acting now for future benefits.
Waiākea Water touts being the very first bottled water that takes advantage of the volcanic source it originates from. The quality is superior in taste, but, the added benefit of natural volcanic mineral composition of the water’s journey down the slopes of the greatest volcano’s lava cone makes this product stand out and above its competitors.
It all starts at the top of Hawaii’s Mauna Loa volcano; precipitation at its highest elevation becomes an “arctic moisture.” Trade winds convert the ice to bountiful rain as it reaches the lower outside mountainous slopes. Naturally filtered through 14,000 porous feet lava rock, a unique blend of life-sustaining minerals become a part of the water.
According to Gust, Waiākea Water proves to be an endlessly flowing spring that takes 30 days from where it originates on Mauna Loa to reach our grocery store. This means Hawaiian natives and now the general public is fortunate enough to have a plentiful supply of this crisp and smooth tasting natural treasure.
Since its arrival onto the bottled water scene in 2012, Founder Ryan Emmons contends the company’s production has increased 5,000 percent up to present time. The company is outdoing all other companies not only by doing ecologically beneficial bottling, but donating their bottled water to countries in great need, for example Africa. They encourage every water consumer to “drink ethically”.
