Waiakea water is really from a Hawaiian volcano, Mauna Loa. This volcanic water is alkaline and certified to be Carbon Neutral. Ryan Emmons wanted to share the Hawaii volcanic water, with the rest of the world.
Truly, this is just one of many fascinating facts about this premium bottled water. The next remarkable feature is the sustainable “plastic” bottle in which it is packaged. These plastic bottles are manufactured with 85 percent less energy than other recycled or original plastic bottles. These bottles are BPA free.
The CEO, Ryan Emmons, wanted to make the water he grew up with in Hawaii available to people all over the world and he wanted to have the smallest “footprint” possible for its production and packaging. This eco-friendly perspective was driven by his awareness of the large and growing amount of plastics in the ocean and bays.
Not only did Emmons, want to market a sustainable and healthy product, his social conscience guided him to become partners with the non-profit group Pump Aid to enable their work and to provide Waiakea water to rural villages without clean water supplies. For every liter of Waiakea water they sell, Emmons donates 650 liters of water to needy areas guided by Pump Aid. He has already donated several hundred million gallons of water.
Because the Waiakea water is volcanic in origin and quite remote from industrial pollutants, it is naturally clean and eco-friendly. This alkaline volcanic water has a ph which is known to provide multiple health benefits. This natural alkalinity is due to the volcanic source.
The business philosophy at Waiakea Water incorporates the environmental and social impact along with its financial growth. This is one company that walks its talk. Sustainability and social responsibility go hand in hand with the economics of this new volcanic water company. It was founded in 2012 and is prospering with Emmon’s leadership and commitment.
