The average American drinks 21 gallons of bottled water a year. It is astonishing to think about. Most of us have perfectly drinkable water coming out of our taps at home; we even use it to brush our teeth, but if you ask us to drink it… We would rather drink out of a plastic bottle; our hopes are that the companies selling the water are not lying when they say how filtered and safe their water is.
Hawaii Volcanic Water
A company named Waikae in Hawaii sells Hawaii Volcanic Water. The water is filtered through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock. Volcanic rock filters water so well that it the volcanic water is considered the cleanest and purest water in the world.
The water is packed with minerals:
The volcanic water benefits from these minerals are all perfect for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Magnesium alone is crucial for maintaining a healthy heart and strong blood vessels.
Who Is Waiakea?
Waiakea was founded in 2012 and was one of the first volcanic water suppliers in Hawaii. In 2015 Waiakea was the most awarded beverage in North America. Their mission is not only to supply great tasting, healthy water but also to help keep the environment healthy as well.
Recycling is becoming more and more popular these days. Everyone knows that plastic has been a big issue when it comes to the health of our beautiful planet. A plastic water bottle can take an average of 450 years and can even take up to 1,000 years to degrade. Meaning that one water bottle that flew out of your truck while you were driving, or you accidentally let blow away in the wind will be around for centuries. Waiakea has created a bottle that they will fully start using in 2018; this plastic bottle will degrade in just 15 years and to top it off the bottle is made from 100 percent recycled plastic.
