Waiakea water earned an award from CarbonNeutral certification in September 2012 for its efforts in maintaining the ecosystem’s balance in Hawaii. Waiakea has a longstanding experience of working with Ecometrica and CarbonNeutral to establish the perfect scheme for preserving the natural environment. Waiakea’s role in the plan was to clean the emissions from their water production process. They also outlined a realistic reforestation program that that adds to the overall reduction of Carbon Dioxide. Waiakea proved its consistency in the movement by adhering to the CarbonNeutral Protocol, which is the strictest environmental maintenance standard in the world.
Waiakea sources its waters from the natural springs in Hawaii. The water is tested to be rich in natural occurring minerals that occur due to volcanic processes of the spring’s mountain source. It has a natural sweet taste and is proven to reduce the effects of some chronic body illnesses with the available minerals. Waiakea is based in Hawaii and takes pride in the locality’s culture. They share the common perception of Hawaiians that they are children of the land and work towards protecting it. Hawaiians motto about the land is malama I ka aina, meaning to respect and care for the land.
Waiakea has a strong stand on the symbiotic relationships between society and the environment. They appreciate the land for its role in providing people with every life necessity such as clothing, housing, food, musical instruments and tools. It is a tribute to nurture the land as it is the life source of humanity.
