Waiakea Water Makes the Right Kind of Footprint on the Environment

During recent years, more and more people have become more environmentally conscious. Less people are using bottled water which creates more waste and pollution and more than likely don’t contain natural water.

More customers have been turning their backs on bottled water, and more are using reusable plastic or glass bottles. Buying plastic bottled water just doesn’t seem worth it anymore. Enter: Waiakea Water, the water company who may be the exception.

Their water comes from an untainted, organically alkaline source and is sold to consumers in ecologically conscious packaging. The company, as a whole is obviously also globally conscious and holds a philosophy true to that idea.

Waiakea was launched in 2012 by founder, Ryan Emmons. It is a Hawaiian volcanic water based company, created after Emmons decided the Hawaiian water he had been drinking was truly something special. During his Hawaii trips, he realized he had access to one of the most natural, healthy and sustainable sources of water in the world.

Waiakea’s water is obtained from one, untouched source, southwest of Hilo, a town on the Big Island of Hawaii. The water is filtered through thousands of feet of the volcano, Mauna Loa. It claims a distinctive mineral structure and pH: rich in electrolytes like magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium.

It has a perfect amount of silica, which creates a soft feel to the water. Founder, Emmons, claims that studies have shown that drinking about 10 mg of silica through your water per day can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by up to 11 percent. The Waiakea’s water contains 30 mg of silica.

According to BabyBoomster, Waiakea water also contains a pH that ranges between 7.8 and 8.8. This pH makes it naturally alkaline. Purified water has a pH of 7. There are artificially alkaline waters on the market, but as Emmons claims, these artificially alkaline waters trick the body into believing that it is gaining more alkaline minerals than are actually there. Studies show that these artificially alkaline waters can cause side effects and should be avoided.
