Waiakea: Water and Conservation

Making sure that the world we live in is clean is imperative to our survival. What we do with the planet will impact what the next generation has to deal with. We are all connected eventually, and we should do our best to take care of the planet. This is even more true these days as we are more aware of the pollution and the risks that we face. Waiakea is a company that is doing this.

Waiakea is a company that sells bottled water. Though many companies these days sell bottled water they are very different because of two important factors. The first being the process through which they obtain their water. Waiakea isn’t filtered in a normal way. The water that they collect comes from the beautiful Hawaii. In fact, the name Waiakea is Hawaiian for “broad waters”. The water they sell is from a volcano called Mauna Loa. The water runs through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock that is as we know very hot. This is very natural and safe, and it is what separates their company from other water companies.

Speaking of safe and natural Waiakea is not only providing safe drinking water but they are trying their best to conserve resources and to keep the world clean. Plastic bottles are known for being very hazardous to the natural environment and in recent years we have discovered that over eight million plastic bottles are dumped into the ocean annually. Waiakea is fighting this by creating the first degradable water bottle that can be recycled. This revolutionary technology will vastly decrease the plastic bottle pollution that we suffer from. Additionally, the vehicles that they use to move their products have low-emissions and the company has been certified Carbon Neutral. This company also takes on charitable traits as they donate a week’s supply of clean water to Malawi for every liter of water they sell.

Waiakea understands that we need to save the planet. They have taken many steps to create a better tomorrow for the entire world. They are not just a company but an example for which all people and companies can look to understand what we need to sustain the environment.
