Summer!! It’s already July, and things are getting hot! So it is important to keep hydrated. How much water do you drink every day? Are you sure you are getting enough?
While we can get water from fruits, milk, teas and other drinks, Water is the only drink able to provide the required amount of hydration without adding on the carbs, sugars, and calories. And not a moment too soon, the people from Waiākea sent me a six-pack of their cool sustainable and ethically sourced water.
What makes Waiakea so unique you ask? Well, it is not all about the water but the enormous positive ecological and social impact they have in their community too. Waiākea prides itself on using high-grade 100% RPET, or recycled polyethylene terephthalate, for all of its bottles. RPET is post-consumer recycled plastic and has incredible environmental advantages.
In comparison to regular or virgin plastic bottles, our 100% RPET bottles:
– Use 85% less energy to manufacture
– Use 90% less water
– Reduce carbon emissions over 90%.4
What makes them extra special to me is their social mission.
In 2014, 650 million people lacked access to clean water—more than two times the population of the United States alone. Simultaneously, more than 2.3 billion people live without basic functional sanitation.
As a result, every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related illness. 6 Waiākea was founded to create positive change for not only the environment but also for people in need throughout the world. For that reason, for every litre of Waiākea you buy, Waiākea donates one week of clean water to those in need in Africa and throughout the world, through our incredible partner, Pump Aid.
Waiākea has won my heart! Not every day you can find an eco-friendly, socially ethical company that provides a fantastic product.
