How Waiakea Water is Changing the Plastic Bottle Industry

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.

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.

Genuinely Natural Waiakea Water

In Polynesian, Waiakea means “broad waters.” Located in what is currently known as Hilo in Hawaii; is the home to two volcanoes: Mauna Loa which is still considered active, and Mauna Kea which is now dormant. The fire goddess “Pele” was known as the the creator of the volcanoes in early Hawaiian mythology. The volcano goddess was worshiped by the indigenous people.

Waiakea is located on the Eastern side of the beautiful island. With an average of 125 inches in rainfall annually, it is considered one of the wettest places in the world. This recurring process results in some of the most natural and pristine sources of water available. Remote tropical conditions remain unpolluted by modern civilization, this allows the area to continue to grow naturally without human interference.

Waiakea water contains minerals that are indigenous to the volcanic rock. This means that beneficial minerals such as magnesium are authentically introduced into the water by mother-nature. Electrolytes also naturally occur due to the ecological process.

Waiakea Water is a Hawaiian company founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons. They have found a way to make this valuable and fresh tasting water available to everyone. Since the water is naturally filtered through volcanic rocks, there is no need to add additives or minerals to improve the quality. Many other water companies add alkaline, minerals and electrolytes artificially.

Waiakea water’s natural electrolytes, minerals and alkalinity, makes it ideal for hydration and bodily health. The water’s refreshing and natural flavor is evident from the first drink.

Waiakea water company prides itself for respecting and caring for the land. They strive to advocate in preserving natural resources. This movement continues to benefit the environment and its surroundings in continuation of balance. They are also active in charitable causes that benefit those in need. They have donated millions of gallons of pure water to places that had limited or no access to clean water.

Waiakea water is leading the way to an all-natural, ecologically-friendly water while preserving the beautiful, lush, island environment.
