Waiakea Water Provides Clean Alternative

Having access to clean drinking water is a necessity for all people in the world to thrive. Today, one organization that is continuing to provide clean drinking water that also tastes great and is refreshing is Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, which is based out of Hawaii, provides a unique approach to producing bottled water, which is helping it to become one of the fastest growing bottled water companies in the world.

One of the things that sets Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water apart from the competition is the fact that it only uses natural water and has a limited process for production. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water already pulls its water from natural water sources that have already gone through a big filtration process through the natural course. Also, the area of Hawaii has not had as much issues with pollution, which helps the water to continue to taste great. While other bottled water companies add salt and minerals to its processes, Waiakea continues to provide a great and clean solution without additives.

 

Another advantage of Waiakea Water is that it is better for the environment. One of the reasons why Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is better is that it does not have as large of a production process. The company does not have to go through a heavy filtration process, which reduces energy usage. Furthermore, the water is bottled within a short drive of the extraction site, which can help to reduce the amount of shipping that is used. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water also only uses recyclable bottles, which is also good for the global environment and reduces waste. Waiakea Water only use the highest quality RPET to make our bottles, bottles that are also BPA Free. It is a type of plastic that the company uses that can fully break it down in 15 years, which is compared to traditional types of plastic that can take over 1,000 years.
