Waiakea Water has a pH of 8.8 and Donates Water via PumpAid
TDS, or “total dissolved solids”, is the most common way of testing the amount of dissolved solids in water. (This is not to be confused with TSS, which is the total suspended solids in a drink.) Waiakea Water from the Big Island of Hawaii scored 62 ppm in a TDS water test, meaning that out of one million parts H20 only 62 of them were from non-water elements. This score of 62 effectively means that unlike some other waters on the market, Waiakea water is extremely pure at 99.9999 percent pure H20. Volcanic water benefits go beyond just the scope of TDS: Waiakea is filtered through the volcanic rock of Mauna Loa, and so it is naturally alkaline with a Waiakea water pH of 8.8. This stands above the neutral mark of 7 which humans need to live in good health.
In addition to being healthy, Waiakea is extremely environmentally friendly as well. The bottles themselves are recycled BPA-free plastic and use up only 15% of the energy that a new bottle would take to produce. As a result, the emissions are then only 10% of what a normal bottle would be when produced. After just three years of inception as a company, Waiakea has gotten the most awards of any drink company ever during the 2015 fiscal year. Because of their efforts, Waiakea has been deemed an officially carbon neutral company.
On top of all this, Waiakea is also a philanthropic organization as well. For every liter of water purchased, the company will provide one week worth of drinking water through PumpAid for people in Sub-Saharan Africa: primarily to those who need it most in Malawi. Volcanic water benefits not only Hawaiians and those living near Waiakea’s water source, Mauna Loa, but also to everyone around the world as well.
