While most people purchase bottled water to maintain a state of good health, they usually are not aware of any efforts made on the part of the companies producing the water. The team behind the Waiakea brand go to great lengths to help bring clean drinking water to countries that do not have enough resources. A portion of the money collected from every bottle of Waiakea water goes toward the task of bringing clean water to a small village in Africa. Not only does this action reflect the social consciousness of the team behind Waiakea water, but it also shows how much they care about helping people lead healthier lives.
The clean water Waiakea helps bring to the village of Malawi is thanks to an organization known as Pump Aid. This organization uses the funds it receives to build pumps in countries where they have limited access to clean water. In the village of Malawi, the average person only has access to about 15 liters of clean water. This is a very small amount when compared to the 660 liters of water used by an average person in America. The efforts taken on the part of the Waiakea brand provides the people of Malawi with new sources of clean water, which helps reduce the amount of sicknesses these people incur.
The team behind the Waiakea brand of bottled water have also taken an active interest in preserving the planet’s natural environment. They do this by using a bottling process that significantly reduces the amount of carbon waste put back into the atmosphere. They also use bottles made of RPET plastic, which means the plastic has already been recycled to make their bottles. The water captured for this brand also comes from a renewable resource. This water falls on the big island of Hawaii as precipitation, which eventually makes a journey that takes it through several layers of underground rock. These rock formations are actually made from past lava spills from the Mauna Loa volcano. They help enrich the water with minerals that make it a healthy beverage as well as a sustainable resource.
