Bottled water gives us one of the most convenient ways to stay hydrated and healthy. Unfortunately, it also poses an environmental hazard, especially because not everyone recycles. Many people give little consideration to the brand of bottled water they drink. It’s often presumed that one bottled water is just as good as any other, but this is not true. A lot of bottled water on the market is no better than the tap water in your home and, besides this, the plastic bottles used are manufactured in ways that actually cause more harm to the environment. These bottled water companies continue to get rich and in the end, are the only ones who really benefit from the consumers who pay for their products.
However, now it is possible to choose a bottled water that gives back to the community and the Earth. The water is Waiakea Hawaiian Bottled Water, which helps to provide clean, drinking water and sanitation for developing countries around the world.
Waiakea Water is different in many ways, starting with the way the Hawaiian volcanic water comes directly from the Muana Loa volcano. It is there that the year round rainfall flows through porous volcanic rock and infuses it with a healthy supply of minerals. The water is naturally alkaline with a ph level of around 7.8-8.8 (slightly higher than the nuetral level of 7 found in pure unfiltered water). Another unique feature of Waiakea Water is that it contains a healthy amount of silica (30mg). Scientific research is learning that silica actually improve cognitive functioning and could reduce the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s Disease. In addition, this exceptionally healthy water is also smooth and satisfying. It has a uniquely quenching feel and when served chilled is refreshing and slightly sweet taste.
Waiakea Water is not only good for your body and your taste buds but it also happens to be a driving force in supporting Pump Aid. This non-profit program installs special pumps in developing villages and towns around the world. These pumps give the communities direct access to clean drinking water and can be maintained easily by the locals. One of the main projects that Pump Aid is involved in takes place in the country of Malawi. Located in Africa, this small country is home to more than 17 million people, 85% of which do not have access to a clean water supply. This nation is considered to be one of the most underdeveloped in the world and they also have a very high infant mortality rate with an average adult life span between 57-60 years old. Part of the reason for this is the lack of access to clean water. This also limits the productivity of the community because people are continually searching for clean water. Pump Aid’s installation of a working water pump has breathed new life into the village which will most likely experience greater health and prosperity as a result.
Contributing to a nonprofit cause like Pump Aid is one of the ways that Waiakea Water makes a difference in the community. When you purchase Waiakea Water, you are also doing something positive to help a developing village become stronger and have access to one of life’s basic necessities. You’ll also be treating yourself and your body to a highly restorative bottled water that is naturally pure and healthy.
