Hawaii has one of the healthiest, natural and sustainable volcanic water sources in the world. As a result, Ryan Emmons after summer and winter experiences with his family at Hawaii decided to establish the bottled Hawaiian Volcanic water known as Waiakea Water, in 2012. Despite the water brand distributes its products to at least 50 states.
Waiakea water is acquired from a renewable sustainable-source. The aquifer which it’s sourced from has approximately 1.4 billion gallons of water. Its packaging is done in an environmental friendly manner. It is worth noting that Waiakea Water is among the very few bottled water and beverage brands in the world certified by CarbonNeutral.
The product is packed in high-grade 100 percent recycled polythene-terephthalate that uses 85 percent less energy to manufacture compared to other bottles. This greatly curbs the emission of carbon by 90 percent during manufacturing process as compared to traditional plastics. This may perhaps be among the primary reasons why Waiakea water is currently ranked among the top ten water brands globally according to 2017 statistics.
Waiakea Water and the Community
Waiakea’s partnership with Pump Aid has enhanced a direct charity dedicated to the community towards ensuring appropriate clean water supply. The charity supports many communities in Africa. More than 1.35 million people have gotten access to clean water and safe sanitation. This has greatly impacted the lives of people in the community. More than 500 million liters of water have been donated so far.
