Waiakea Water is not just another bottled water company, they have been using their success to help catapult them into a whole new stratosphere when it comes to changing an industry. The company began selling their brand of bottled water in 2012, and right out of the gates they were determined to make a mark like no other.
The combination of developing a new plastic bottle and giving back in abundance to those in need are a few of the ways Waiakea Water have been changing an industry.
Right from day one, Waiakea Water was committing themselves to helping those in need. From day one, Waiakea Water was already donating 3 percent of the company’s revenue to local Hawaiians that were in need. This water company was giving money to local organizations that could help Hawaiian residents who were down on their luck and needed a helping hand. The satisfaction that comes from helping others seemed to start a fire that resulted in the company wanting to do more.
Waiakea Water was extremely fortunate to have discovered a natural water source that not only produced millions of gallons of water a day, it made use of the natural volcanic tubes to purify the water so it was among the best tasting in the world. Ryan Emmons, founder of Waiakea Water, decided at this point the company was going to donate a week’s supply of fresh water for every bottle of his volcanic water sold, provided to communities around the world that were in need of fresh water.
Then Waiakea Water partnered with PumpAid, and was able to reach a global audience more effectively. Now, Waiakea Water would send their employees to different communities and with the help of PumpAid, install new water pumps so these communities could access their own fresh water whenever they needed. The Waiakea Water team would also so the locals how to maintain the pumps and educate them on preserving this most needed natural resource.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKXsPKGtL_I
It only stands to reason that Waiakea Water is still not satisfied, so they are trying to help future generations to be able to enjoy the natural resources of the planet by developing the first fully degradable plastic water bottle.
