Bottled water has always had a bad rap, probably due to the fact over 22 billion plastic bottles find their way into various landfills and incinerators each year. According to Specialty Food, Waiakea water is one brand that has been changing the face of the industry for the past three years and just recently launched their new #FollowYourFlow social media contest.
Ryan Emmons, the founder of the company, discovered the source of the Waiakea springs while vacationing in Hawaii with his family. He found out the unique properties of the water and saw an opportunity to start changing the face of the industry. The continued success of the company has led it to expand its platform and continue making the world a better place.
The contest involves giving one lucky follower on their social media the opportunity to discover the beauty of Hawaii and to have a life-changing experience when they attend the Wanderlust Yoga Festival. The contestant who wins will receive a round-trip flight to Oahu, compliment of Skyscanner, and will be provided with up to a $1,000 of free airfare.
According to Baby Boomster, the competition was inspired by Waiakea water commitment to fueling a healthy and balanced lifestyle from the Hawaiian volcanic water’s naturally alkaline and electrolyte rich content.
Fans of the Hawaiian water can enter by just submitting their name, email, and birthdate on the contest page. The contest will run until January 31st and the winner will be announced on February 1st.
What has made the Hawaiian water so popular to inspire such a contest? Consumers will be pleased to know it’s due to the unique mineral content of the water. The water comes from the rainfall and snowmelt atop the Mauna Loa volcano.
The water is naturally filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock. When the water comes out it contains a mineral content of calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, and silica.
The company’s continued dedication has even led them to ensure sustainable packaging. The water is sourced from an aquifer with a 1.4-billion-gallon recharge rate. The facility even uses 33% of renewable energy for the manufacturing process.
