Although almost 70 percentage of the Earth is filled with trees and water, it is not easy to get clean drinking water. For many people, if they’d get bottled water, they would be sure they are drinking clean water. But the water is expensive. This is not the case in Hawaii thanks to Waiakea Water. The company collects, and packages pure natural volcanic water that springs from Mauna Loa Mountains, one of the five active mountains in Hawaii.
How Safe Is Waiakea Water?
Waiakea Water is so far the safest for human consumption. There are many reasons why one would conclude so. First, because of the volcanic activity in Mauna Loa, essential minerals are left to rest in the water. Remember too that most rivers in the region have their sources up the ‘Long Mountain’ as Mauna Loa is sometimes called. So, naturally, even before any treatment is done, the Hawaiian volcanic water is safe for human consumption.
The other thing is that there is alkaline in the water. This is very important whether the water has been purified by Waiakea Water or not. As for Waiakea Water, a company started in 2012 by Ryan Emmons, you do not have to worry about the level of hygiene put. Each bottle of water by Waiakea Water has proper amounts of electrolytes and mineral salts that are essential for human consumption. What is more is that Waiakea water pH is at 8.8. This is the ideal level of water pH for human use.
Apart from producing water for Hawaii locals, Ryan Emmons with a group of his employees also donate to Africa. Prior to starting Waiakea Water, Emmons travelled to Africa many times. As an aid worker, he got to interact with many needy families in Africa. Having seen how those families struggled to find safe drinking water, he thought of how he’ll at least help them access drinking water. It is true that they may not access Hawaii’s volcanic water but Ryan says that for every bottle of Waiakea Water sold, Africa get 650 liters of water courtesy of Waiakea Water Pump Aid Program.
