The island of Hawaii has many active volcanoes, including Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. These volcanoes in the small Pacific island chain have been active for decades. The volcanoes are ejecting lava which is rich in minerals, and some of these are heading straight to the island’s springs, mixing with water. The mineral-infused water from Hawaii’s springs are known for its health benefits, and people are drinking it with the belief that it would make them more active and healthy. The miraculous water from Hawaii’s volcanic island caught the attention of a private firm, and they collected the water from the island and sold it under the brand name Waiakea Water. The company claims that the water they sell is one of the purest and cleanest bottled water on the planet, and it has a lot of health benefits to those who would be drinking it. Waiakea Water is now being sold across the United States, and many people who have tasted it said that the water feels refreshing and their energy levels went back after taking a sip.
Waiakea Water is also proud to say that their products are using an eco-friendly bottle that would never pollute the environment. It is one of the few bottled water companies in the market offering such features, and they said that through protecting the environment, they are giving the island of Hawaii a favor. The company is also urging the people who are buying their products to recycle, and not to throw their trash anywhere, to minimize the damages on the planet. Waiakea Water is an example of a responsible company who influences its customers to stick to being eco-friendly. Through their efforts, the number of plastic trash can be minimized, and people could start thinking about protecting their environment.
Aside from their campaign against littering, Waiakea Water is also a partner of several organizations operating in Africa. Every portion of their sales from the bottled water comes straight to the funds of their NGO partners, which are providing free water to impoverished African states. This year, Waiakea Water’s primary goal is to provide clean water for the people of Malawi, a landlocked African country without access to clean water.
