Watermelon water is the latest water alternative. 100% natural with antioxidants and electrolytes coupled with a delicious taste is the secret to its quick success.
If you are a fan of water alternatives, Mela Water is a must to try! You can choose from a few mouthwatering flavor combinations such as watermelon and ginger, watermelon and pineapple, and watermelon and passion fruit.
As watermelon water is a newer phenomenon, it is important to know that Mela Water is just as hydrating as coconut water (a common water alternative), plus it’s ten times better in terms of flavor and overall experience. There are also no added sugars. Any sugar present comes from the natural watermelon itself; allowing you to feel good.
Watermelon water is a big part of other cultures, but it hasn’t had the same impact in the United States, yet. Coconut water is in every single store, every coffee shop and every gas station, but nobody knows what watermelon water is. Mela Water is changing this.
About The Founder
Owner, Dominic Purpura, has been an entrepreneur his entire life. He helped start a beef jerky company in southern California which had a lot of success. While working at that company, Dominic was still trying to search for a product he could launch or buy on his own. He started to notice a huge movement in the hydration world. Five years ago, the only place you could buy a Pedialyte (an electrolyte solution used to restore minerals and fluids) was at CVS, Rite Aid or Walgreens. Now, Pedialytes are sold everywhere at gas stations and liquor stores. Because of the term hydration and everything about whether that’s from Gatorades, coconut water Pedialytes or Liquid I.V., Dominic points out how huge the hydration industry is and how people want to get more for less. They feel instead of drinking a gallon of water, they can drink one Pedialyte and get just as much hydration out of it. In 2021, Dominic purchased Mela Water from the two previous owners, originally based out of Seattle, Washington.
Mela Water is actively giving back through every purchase. For every single four pack sold, they plant a tree in the community of Southeast Asia. Their goal is to plant about 40,000 trees this year.
