The bottled water industry is no place for softies. People need to have a strong stomach to put up with the blatant disregard for the environment. There’s nothing wrong with drinking bottled water, billions of people all over the world do it every day.
The problem comes from all the plastic used to package the water. It’s sad to think about all that plastic floating in the oceans and cluttering up landfills. Landfills, in themselves, are a bad idea, but the plastic makes it much worse. Ordinary plastic doesn’t degrade for 1,000 years, so that plastic will be there long after modern society’s dead and gone.
What happens if one of these bottled water companies started caring about the environment? That company would immediately become the fastest-growing beverage company in the world. That’s exactly what Waiakea Water did, and now, they are the fastest-growing beverage company in the world.
This year, Waiakea Water plans to switch to completely degradable plastic bottles to package their water. Unlike their traditional counterparts, Waiakea Water’s bottles degrade in 15 years. That’s a big difference compared to a substance that will outlive the entire bloodlines of the people who originally manufactured them.
Waiakea Water goes beyond caring about the environment. They also care about helping communities get back on their feet and helping struggling nations. As a water company, they provide clean water to several underdeveloped nations in Africa through a special program. For every liter of water they sell, they donate gallons to villages
As for the water itself, Waiakea Water is volcanic and the cleanest of any other bottled water company’s beverage. Their water is filtered through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock and is naturally infused with vitamins and minerals. People love having water that isn’t artificially produced in a factory.
More than that, Waiakea Water come from Hawaii and embraces its Hawaiian roots. The name Waiakea comes from the words “wai akea”, meaning “broad waters.” People love things from Hawaii.
