Amid Heat Wave, ZICO Donates Coconut Water to Californians

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — In the wake of the recent heat wave that swept over the West Coast, ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water has stepped forward to assist the aptly named town of Furnace Creek, CA. ZICO delivered more than 1000 liters of coconut water to help provide natural hydration, and is proud to be able to help out a community in need. As a token of their appreciation, the Furnace Creek Visitor Center plans to distribute ZICO during the commemoration ceremony of the 100th anniversary of the highest air temperature ever recorded on Earth, when the heat reached 134 degrees Fahrenheit in Furnace Creek on July 10, 1913.

As a delicious and naturally hydrating beverage containing 5 electrolytes, ZICO is a great asset to help combat the dehydration associated with high temperatures. That’s why moving forward, any town or city council across America can reach out to ZICO via Twitter when temperatures reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit and higher with #Oomphat120 to receive some natural hydration. After all, ZICO provides natural Oomph from coconuts.

“When we heard that Furnace Creek was approaching the hottest day on earth, we thought we could help. Our coconut water is sourced in extremely hot climates, commonly 120 degrees, so it’s passed the test as a source of hydration,” said CEO and Founder of ZICO Beverages LLC., Mark Rampolla. “While we were only able to reach a fraction of those in need this time, we’re striving to find a way we’ll be able to connect with and help those affected by future hydration emergencies. I’ve personally drank coconut water in 120 degree heat in the tropics.  It works!”

A former Peace Corps volunteer in Central America, Rampolla has a long history of working to give back so this effort is a natural extension.
