The Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water company was founded in June 2012, by innovator Ryan Emmons, in the city of Hilo, Hawaii. Being the first healthy and sustainable volcanic drinking water it is rich with delicious flavor, natural electrolytes and pure minerals while having the recommended pH balance of 8.8. This volcanic water is from the peak of the active volcano Mauna Lao on the Big Island of Hawaii. Waiakea is also a charitable foundation, for every liter of Waiakea water that is sold they donate 650 liters worth of clean water to those needed in Africa through their partnered charity called Pump Aid.
Waiakea is Certified CarbonNeautral with 100 percent recycled plastic which means a 90 percent smaller carbon footprint compared to other leading water bottles, and is also BPA free. The volcanic water benefits are that the water is pure with natural electrolytes and minerals. There is found to be 30mg of silica in the volcanic bottles of water, studies suggest that drinking at least 10mg of silica per day can reduce the risk of Alzheimers.
Many people confuse that bottled water has a natural pH balance of 7, but the pH balance differs with bottle to bottle and is most likely considered acidic and is artificially enhanced. Consumers are urged to look at every bottle before you buy because it could have adverse effects to your health if you are drinking acidic water, or artificially added vitamins and minerals. The look and taste of Waiakea water is the future to all bottled drinking water, since it is recycled, eco friendly, and completely natural and pure. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water has won many awards for their greatness, including the Food and Beverage Innovation award from the National Restaurant Association and the Most Socially or Environmentally Responsible Company of the Year, North America by Best in Biz Awards. You can purchase this water online since it is currently being distributed to 30 states, or available in stores such as Whole Foods, Wawa, and Central Markets.
