Founded in 2012, Waiakea Water’s mission is to produce healthy, Hawaiian volcanic water with as little impact as possible, while acting in a conservationist way. Waiakea also aims to provide and access to clean water and education for people across the world. While meeting these mission objectives, Waiakea has also been nominated as the best volcanic water brand in the entire world, by the website 10 Best Water. Waiakea’s water is young water, less than thirty day from capture to bottling, derived from the ice caps of Mauna Loa volcano and is passed through volcanic rock during the filtration process. This extra step infuses the water with minerals and alkaline creating a distinct, light, crisp flavor and taste.
Waiakea has partnered with Pump Aid to provide clean drinking water and educational services in Africa. By providing clean drinking water, Waiakea is helping Africans fight off malnutrition and water borne diseases that plague their natural supplies. Another benefit of this partnership is that African women are able to pursue other activities, such as education, because their entire day is not consumed with locating and carrying water back to the village. Waiakea is also active in the Hawaiian community, sponsoring music festivals, art shows, surfing competitions, and local grassroots fundraisers.
