Introducing Live Alkaline Water, the first Black-owned water company to have products sold at Walmart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The company uses water that comes from a natural alkaline water spring that Robert McCray's family has owned in North Carolina for more than 100 years. McCray told First Coast News that his aunt once took him out to the spring and said "you're the blood of your ancestors crying out for you and you're responsible for this." According to Black Enterprise, “the water is sourced from a natural underground spring, an aquifer, and a mineral rock bed that lies 800 feet below the ground making it extremely pure and fresh to the taste.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He went on to team up with Dr. Shayla Creer to develop the brand. "I called ... many Walmarts, and finally we got a hold of one who allowed us to do a presentation,” Dr. Creer said. After a successful presentation, the water went on to sell out within a month of hitting shelves, and is now sold in a total of three Walmart locations in Florida. The retail giant intends to continue to sell the water and hopes to add the products to even more of its stores. “Healthy people make a healthy community,” McCray said. “Eat right, drink right and you begin to think right, as a people." #blackexcellence #becauseofthemwecan
