The battle of the bottled water brands is in full-effect and there are frankly too many brands that are aiming for that coveted top spot. In all honesty, the market is fully clutteredwith brand after brand. Some brand are good and some brands aren’t good. Can you imagine the amount of leftover plastic bottles that are littered on earth’s landscape? Did you know that an estimated eight million tons of plastic was dumped into the oceans over a year’s time? Over 50 billion plastic bottles were used last year, but only 23 percent of the plastic bottles were recycled. That’s surely a huge discrepancy.
Waiakea, a popular bottled water brand, is changing the game by producing the first water bottle that is fully degradable. The bottles were introduced to the market in 2018, and they will have the ability to decompose in just 15 years. To put things in a better perspective, most plastic bottles tend to hang around for at least 1,000 years. Waiakea is definitely doing its part to better mankind, but this is just the beginning. Waiakea Hawaiian water is also one of the best-selling brands of bottled water in the world. The water comes from a natural source, which is excessive amounts of rainfall. To add insult to injury, this water passes through one of the most naturally advanced filtration systems. The porous rocks of the Mauna Loa volcano provides state-of-the-art purification. These rocks can literally fill the Grand Canyon 18 times, and the volcano stands at 33,000 feet above the sea’s floor.
Thanks to being such a natural philanthropist, this company is using its success to install wells that deliver clean drinking water to numerous communities in Africa. It would be very hard trying to find another bottled water brand that is willing to go this far. When it comes to sustainability, Waiakea is certainly looking like it will be around for quite some time.
Water revitalizes and nourishes the body. It is a vital component that sustains human life. In the recent past, however, many people found it too luxurious to buy bottled water since they could easily fetch drinking water from their taps.
Thanks to companies like Waiakea, the bottled water industry has grown into a multi-billion dollar sector with Italians listed as the major consumers. Waiakea water has taken a turn by introducing a natural, healthy, pure and sustainable product in the market. Ryan Emmons is the founder of the pioneer volcanic water which is filtered fresh from Hawaii. Waiakea water is a brand that has infused several properties in order to gain a competitive edge over other brands.
The Hawaiian volcanic water is obtained from a pristine, natural and sustainable source. It is collected after passing through a 14,000 feet porous volcanic rock through the Mauna Loa, an active volcano. The volcanic water has many derived benefits. The water is ingrained with electrolytes and rich mineral deposits like sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium all adding to its health benefits. It also collects an ample amount of silica useful for Alzheimer’s prevention. Waiakea water pH ranges between 7.8- 8.8 making it naturally alkaline hence good for drinking.
Waiakea has adopted a sustainable packaging that is environmentally friendly. The packaging bottles are made of unique 100% recyclable plastic that is easily degradable. The company has made a significant investment in this bottle since it cares for the environment and aquatic life, including in freshwater and marine. The company has gone an extra mile to use environmental friendly trucks during delivery of the water. It also accounts for its carbon footprint and has been certified to be carbon neutral.
Waiakea water company is an avid supporter of philanthropy. Mr. Emmons actively donates to disadvantaged communities who have limited access to clean water. Through its partnership with Pump Ai, the company distributes water to needy communities for every liter they sell. Waiakea uses the unique brand and its beneficial attributes to gain acceptance and create loyal clients. Waiakea water is also a product name derived from the rich Hawaiian culture and therefore increases its selling points. It is healthy and reasonably priced giving many consumers a reason to pick it from other competing brands.
While bottled water isn’t necessarily a consumer hit in the beverage game, Ryan Emmons says otherwise. He saw an opportunity and jumped on it. The creation of a niche company that is also socially conscious. This is how Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was formed.
Emmons knocked the ball out of the park with a sustainable, healthy and environmentally friendly product. The founder of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water can assure you that the road was not easy. What many don’t know if the bottled water game is an “Old boy’s system.” Most of the companies are owned by individuals 50 and over. There are only a few young entrepreneurs. Emmons says the youngsters have to stick together because no one would give them so much as a call back.
Today, plenty of people are calling. Emmons started his water company in 2012, at the age of 22. Since that time, the company has grown 4,000%. It was a slow and steady climb that started with local dealers and grew to national chains like Whole Foods.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water worth is estimated at $10 million. The water originates from the snow melt from the island’s Mauna Loa volcano. That area is one of the purest on the planet. After passing through thousands of feet of volcanic rock, the water contains minerals that are good for your entire body.
For every bottle of water sold, PumpAid gives 650ML of fresh water to needy communities in Africa. The packing partnership with an company in Long Island assures the bottles are packed eco-friendly.
Emmons, a native of Southern California began working on his project in his freshman year. He says the bottled water business was not out of the ordinary, especially since he spent his years growing up between Hawaii and Long island. Emmons says he is set to launch in several more companies in the next few years.
