Waiākea was founded in 2012 as the first healthy, sustainable, and charitable premium bottled water of its kind. Waiākea volcanic water originates in Hawaii through both snowmelt and rain on the pristine peak of the active Mauna Loa volcano -- one of the purest environments on Earth. It's then filtered through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock, enhancing it with minerals and electrolytes to make it naturally alkaline with a pH of 8.8, and smooth to taste with a hint of sweet. Waiākea is the first ever U.S.-bottled water to be awarded carbon-neutral certification, and is the industry leader in sustainability through its many eco-initiatives. For each bottle sold, Waiākea donates 650 liters of clean water to those in need, through PumpAid.org. Waiākea’s mission is to sustainably provide healthy and delicious Hawaiian volcanic water while contributing to clean water access in developing countries. Water comes in a high-grade, BPA-free, RPET post-consumer recycled plastic bottle that uses 85% less energy to manufacture and reduces carbon emissions by over 90%. Perfect size for active lifestyles and for on-the-go hydration.
