Elizabeth's Best - Waiākea Bottled Water
by Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino on April 22nd, 2015

Our family of six agrees that Waiākea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is the absolute BEST! - The Guarino Family in Maine

"Awesome various sizes of bottles for different uses" and "Great Tasting" were just some of the comments our for teenage sons made about this water.  One tested it out at baseball practice and was thankful he had brought a second bottle with him.  Our family of six tested this against tap water, filtered water from the refrigerator and two other brands of bottled water and each person in our family selected ​Waiākea Hawaiian Volcanic Water as their favorite.
Originating as both snowmelt and rain on the Big Island’s Mauna Loa volcano, Waiākea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is filtered through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock, producing one of the most delicious alkaline and electrolyte-rich natural waters in the world. For every liter bought, Waiākea donates 650 liters of clean water to disadvantaged communities in rural Africa through Pump Aid, and in accordance with the Hawaiian practice and notion of “ma?lama i ka ‘aina”, Waiakea is proud to be certified CarbonNeutral(R) for its variety of eco-initiatives.

Whether you’re an avid surfer, Olympian or Yoga Mom, Waiākea will keep you optimally hydrated and performing at your best. Waiākea is naturally filtered through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock that give it a variety of health benefits.

Protecting the environment has always been a foundation of Hawaiian culture. Waiākea takes this responsibility seriously and strives to honor the practice of malama i ka’āina –“to respect and care for the land.”

Waiākea is one of the first premium bottled waters and beverages in the world to be certified CarbonNeutral®, and is an industry leader in sustainability through its many eco-initiatives...

Waiākea prides itself on using high-grade 100% RPET, or recycled polyethylene terephtalate, for all of its bottles. RPET is post-consumer recycled plastic and has incredible environmental advantages.
In comparison to regular or virgin plastic bottles, 100% RPET bottles
- use 85% less energy to manufacture
- use 90% less water
- reduce carbon emissions over 90%.4
On top of this, we only use the highest quality RPET to make our bottles, bottles that are also BPA Free.
Sustainable Sourcing
The Kea’au aquifer that Waiākea taps into is regarded as one of the most sustainable fresh water resources in the world, with a daily recharge rate of 1.38 billion gallons per day5

Regional Reforestation
Waiākea participates in a variety of regional reforestation and carbon offset projects through partnerships with The CarbonNeutral® company and Ecometrica.

All of these initiatives led Waiākea to be the first domestic premium bottled water to be certified CarbonNeutral®.

Waiākea Bottled with Mother Earth in Mind®

In 2012, 783 million people lacked access to clean water. That is almost 3 times the population of the United States alone. It is because of this that every 20 seconds, a child
dies from a water-related illness. Waiākea was founded to create positive change for not only the environment, but also for people in need throughout the world.

More than 1.25 million people now have access to safe water and basic sanitation in some of the most vulnerable areas of Africa as a direct result of Pump Aid's work. In Malawi they have established more than 3,200 pumps throughout the country, serving 400,000+ people every day. In 2012, we reached an additional 20,000 people. Waiākea is also excited to help them begin work in Zimbabwe, where they’ve already installed 5,000 pumps, to expand services and empower communities

For every liter of Waiākea you buy, Waiākea donates 650 liters of clean water to those in need in Africa through Pump Aid.

Not Just Water, IMPACT!
The impact Pump Aid has made with the help of Waiākea is measurable: More children in school, fewer people with preventable water-borne illnesses and malnutrition, more time for women to devote to other needs. We are proud that our product can change and save lives. Our goal is to expand throughout sub-Saharan Africa over the next few years.
