Award winning water firm Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water has donated over 1 billion liters of clean water to those in need in Malawi through their work with nonprofit partner Pump Aid since its inception in 2012.
Through the installation of UN awarded Elephant Pumps, Pump Aid provides clean water to those in desperate need. Lifting the immense burden of finding clean water leads to exponential, positive change at many levels within the community.
The UN’s annual World Water Day will take place on Wednesday, March 22nd, and is devoted to focusing critical attention on the water crisis that plagues over 650 million people throughout the globe.
With each case of Waiakea water sold, 7,800 liters of clean drinking water are donated to communities in need through the installation of Elephant Pumps. Waiakea will be celebrating World Water Day with 20% off a case of Hawaiian Volcanic water, now through March 26th.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, originating as both rain as well as melted snow on Big Island’s Mauna Loa volcano, is filtered through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock, producing one of the most naturally alkaline and electrolyte-rich waters in the world.
Almost five percent of Waiakea’s revenue goes toward local community programs and nonprofits, such as The Kama’aha Initiative, INPEACE, and Kupu, fostering education and environmental stewardship. Furthermore, for every liter bought, Waiakea donates 1 month of clean water to someone in need in Malawi through its clean water projects in partnership with Pump Aid.
In accordance with the Hawaiian practice and notion of “malama i ka ‘a¯ina” (to protect and care for the land), Waiakea is proud to be the first and finest bottled water in the U.S. to be certified CarbonNeutral for its variety of sustainability initiatives, which are inclusive of using one of the most sustainable fresh water resources in the world.
The water is packed using only 100% RPET bottles with a 90% smaller CO2 footprint than competitors, and in the process of shipping low emission is observed.
