When it comes to bottled water, there are literally hundreds of brands to choose from. Though the exact number is arguable, just take a look at all of the brands that fill the stores’ shelves. Dasani, Poland Spring, Aquafina, Nestle Pure Life, Trump Ice, VEEN, Voss, Himalaya, Great Value and many more are the culprits. One of the purest bottled-water brands on the market today is known as Waiakea, and it comes from the Hawaiian islands. Waiakea, which means broad waters, has an abundance of minerals and sports a copious amount of electrolytes even though it displays a clear color.
Bottled water brings-in billions of dollars in which it is now one of the best-selling beverages in modern-day society. Out of all the different nationalities that makeup the earth’s demographics, the Italians are recognized as the biggest consumers of bottled-water. Can you imagine the amount of actual plastic bottles that are thrown away? Unfortunately, most people don’t recycle and this lack of effort is causing problems with the environment. Last year, there was an estimated 50 billion plastic bottles that were purchased on a worldwide scale, but only 23 percent of the plastic bottles were recycled. Yes, there is surely a huge problem with the leftover bottles as they are laying around on the earth’s surface. It was estimated that 8 million tons of plastic is dumped in the earth’s oceans every single year. Most of the plastic in our oceans come from the countries of Thailand, Vietnam and China.
Waiakea has taken drastic steps in cleaning-up the nonsense by being the first company to develop degradable water bottles. These bottles will fully degrade in about 15 years. If you didn’t know, it’s estimated that it takes a 1,000 years for a plastic bottle to degrade. Waiakia’s water is purer than most of its competitors, and its plastic bottles are far more progressive than 99.9 percent of the field. In the end, Waiakea is doing its part to better mankind, and it’s doing its part to better the environment.
