Bottled water is a crowded space with many of the brands trying different things in order to stand out. It’s now a huge, global industry that’s worth over $100 billion, something that not that many years ago most people would have thought absurd. People were fine getting water out of their tap which costs virtually nothing when it comes to drinking water. Slowly but surely, though, many people now prefer drinking bottled water for a number of personal reasons.
In order to stand out, brands will try different methods. Some come up with a unique and catchy tagline for the brand. Others express what makes their water unique whether that takes the form of vitamins and/or minerals, either occurring naturally or added during the bottling process. Still others point to the way they filter the water as a reason to buy their water.
One unique brand is Waiakea Water. What makes them stand out? Actually, a number of things do. First, the water they bottle is naturally alkaline which supports optimal health. It’s bottled Hawaii volcanic water and the way it is naturally filtered results in this alkalinity as well as naturally occurring healthy minerals. The Waiakea Water Ph level naturally varies but it’s around 8.8. this level helps the body get rid of free radicals that can lead to disease.
Waiakea Water has a range of minerals in that it picks up while being filtered through a volcano. This includes potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, and silica. It’s also water that tastes slightly sweet, which adds to its appeal.
Being better for the environment is also a claim that Waiakea Water makes. The bottles are made of 100% recycled plastic, for instance. Also, they partnered with another firm called TimePlast. The result was a material that can be added to the bottle itself in order to help it break down far more rapidly than any other water bottle. We’re talking about 15 years while other companies water bottles can take 15 centuries to finally decompose. This results in a bottle that is dramatically better for the environment than any of this company’s competitors.
