Waiākea Water’s Sustainability Includes its Bottles Too

Hawaiians are well-known for their close relationship with nature. They take immense pride in their bond with nature, as it is an integral part of the Hawaiian culture. Now, this is something that is extending to their business too.

Hawaiians believe that the relationship with environment needs to be symbiotic. Nature provides us everything. This would include food and clothing. Even shelter, tools, music and everything else comes from nature. All that we need to do is to protect and conserve the environment. This would require following sustainable practices. This is what Waiākea believes in too.

In fact, everything about Waiākea is about sustainability. The most important environmental initiative is the use of a highly sustainable fresh water resource.

The bottles are 100% RPET. This means they are made of recycled polyethylene terephthalate. This is a top grade plastic that is post-consumer recycled having several environmental advantages. Such bottles of Waiākea require 85% less energy for being manufactured. Besides, 90% lesser amount of water is required to manufacture them. The carbon emissions are also reduced by nearly 90%. In this way, Waiākea is doing its bit to reduce carbon footprints and enhance environmental sustainability.

These are top quality bottles as high-grade RPET is being used to make them. Even further, these bottles are BPA Free too. In this way, Waiakea water is striving to innovate in all possible ways. This is going to have a huge impact not only on their product but the entire industry as a whole.

The packaging bottle is made of renewable bio-polymers. Hence it is a fully recyclable product. It is naturally biodegradable too making it a perfectly environment friendly option.

In addition to using 100% RPET bottles only, Waiākea water is making use of low emission shipping too. In this way, it is able to do its bit for the environment.

Waiākea water believes in actively participating in all kinds of regional reforestation programs. Besides, it is a part of various other types of carbon offset programs too. This is why it is the first bottled beverage in the world that has been certified CarbonNeutral®.
