Waiakea Water: A Leader in Sustainability

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is produced by Waiakea, Inc., which bottles a naturally alkaline water. This bottled water is captured from a single source located outside of Hilo, a town on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The Waiakea water is naturally filtered by the Mauna Loa volcano. This water gets its special makeup of calcium, magnesium, potassium and silica. This magically combination creates an unusually smooth, silky water that might be described as gliding.

The naturally alkaline water‘s pH ranges from 7.8 up to 8.8. The difference between standard water is regular water’s pH is 7. The Waiakea water achieves its pH naturally.

Another proud innovation by Waiakea, Inc., is they are switching to the earth’s first completely degradable plastic water bottle. This new packaging will be a 100% recyclable plastic, and they will begin to implement the new containers within the next year. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water takes pride in this groundbreaking feature that will add to the total sustainability of this forward thinking company.

The company is also a partner of TimePlast, which created the only additive for the nano-degradation of plastic that is patented and available worldwide. These bottles will degrade 97% quicker than standard plastic beverage bottles. Traditional bottles will need millions, yes millions, of years to fully breakdow, but with this new patented addition the TimePlast and Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water bottles will degrade in a practical 15 years. TimePlast plastic is still a fully recyclable plastic.

Waiakea, Inc., was created in 2012 and was the first Hawaiian volcanic premium water. The company stands by its mission to provide not only healthy drinking water but sustainability while still contributing back to the community. They donate one week’s worth of drinking water to families in need in Malawi with each liter sold, this program is partnered with Pump Aid.
