As our company continues its expansion into the mainland and more consumers are able to enjoy the refreshing, smooth taste of Hawaiian Springs, we plan to further extend our commitment to our local community by increasing awareness of the natural, yet fragile beauty of Hawaii.
Tustin, CA (PRWEB) August 9, 2009
Hawaiian Springs LLC, a premier natural water brand recognized for bottling some of the purest and most sustainable waters in the world, today announced its sponsorship of the Maui Nui Botanical Gardens in Kahului, Hawaii. The nursery is renowned for growing cuttings of plants on the State of Hawaii's endangered species list and outplanting them for the Nature Conservancy and other organizations. Hawaiian Springs features two flowers from this list--the nanu (white gardenia) and red ilima (flowering maple)--on its packaging to raise awareness of these increasingly rare native plants.
"The Maui Nui Botanical Gardens works diligently to care for the plants and flowers that characterize Hawaii as a flourishing tropical locale, and that we also strive to protect by supporting groups such as the Nature Conservancy," said Rick Hadley, CEO of Hawaiian Springs. "As our company continues its expansion into the mainland and more consumers are able to enjoy the refreshing, smooth taste of Hawaiian Springs, we plan to further extend our commitment to our local community by increasing awareness of the natural, yet fragile beauty of Hawaii."
Motivated by its mission to foster an appreciation and understanding of the Hawaiian Islands, the Maui Nui Botanical Gardens provides a center for environmental education, Hawaiian cultural expression, conservation, biological study and recreation. Through events, programs and day-to-day gardening, the organization works hard to preserve the Aloha State's environmental legacy. As part of its initiatives to maintain the authentic beauty and diversity of Hawaii, the garden provides seedlings for outplanting by the Nature Conservancy and other organizations.
"Our staff deeply appreciates Hawaiian Springs' dedication to protecting our state's rare wildlife," said Lisa Schattenburg-Raymond, executive director of Maui Nui Botanical Gardens. "We are extremely thankful to the company for its generous contribution to our cause, and we look forward to our joint efforts toward keeping Hawaii green and beautiful."
Like the Maui Nui Botanical Gardens, Hawaiian Springs makes a concerted effort to minimize waste and conserve its local environment. With a sustainable use rating of 740 million gallons per day, the Hawaiian Springs aquifer is one of the most robust and healthiest water sources in the world. In addition, the company protects natural resources by acquiring production materials from local Hawaiian suppliers, and by using fewer materials and fuel miles from water source to market. As part of its commitment to preserving Hawaii's most cherished resources--its natural flora, fauna and ecosystem--Hawaiian Springs also serves on the Corporate Council for the Environment for the Nature Conservancy.

throughout all the islands, making it Hawaii's favorite local water. Drawn from an artesian well at the base of Mauna Loa, Hawaiian Springs bottles its water at the source, directly from the aquifer to its bottling facility. Freshness, purity and a naturally sweet taste distinguish Hawaiian Springs from other waters.
