Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water Has Just Reached a New Level

Waiakea Volcanic Water has joined the ranks of all the top beverage companies. As of this past January, Waiakea water offered it first big giveaway. Like other household brands, Waiakea’s giveaway reflects its company image. The winner of Waiakea’s “#FollowYourFlow” contest received a free trip to Oahu to experience the Wanderlust Yoga Festival.

The round-trip flight was compliments of Skyscanner, who provided the airfare up to $1000. Waiakea water chose the Yoga Festival because it so perfectly reflected the company’s commitment to balanced and healthy lifestyles. The winner of the contest was sure to love the free healthy lifestyle vacation.

The Wanderlust Yoga Festival took place starting February 23rd and lasted till the 26th. The festival was a huge success among the health enthusiast crowd.

The celebration featured a wide array of world-class yoga instructors, meditation areas, and live music. The festival also embraced its host city by offering local guided outdoor adventures and serving sustainable, local foods.

If Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water sounds like just another bottled water brand claiming to be the best, it isn’t, Arguably, Waiakea is the best bottled water brand in the world. Unlike other bottled water brands, Waiakea is 100 percent naturally from start to finish. It originates as snowmelt and rainfall on the Mauna Loa volcano.

It’s then naturally filtered through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock. The volcanic rock naturally enriches the water with alkaline, electrolytes, and other nutritious minerals. The filtered and enriched water then spurts up out of springs all over the volcano where it is quickly packaged to maintain its purity.

According to Forbes, Waiakea water is the top bottled water brand in the world for a reason. Not only is the product great in itself, but the company is also one of the most environmentally conscious companies in the world. It was the first premium bottled water brand in America to be CarbonNeutral certified.

Waiakea’s packaging process has limited the company’s carbon footprint to minuscule numbers. Their packaging facilities emit about 90 percent small CO2 than any of their competitors.

Consumers also like the fact that Waiakea has an avid charitable commitment. Ryan Emmons, Founder of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, always wanted his company to have a philanthropic aspect. Nearly 5 percent of all Waiakea’s revenue is donated to local and global programs and nonprofits.
