Originating from Hawaii, Waiakea is a volcanic water brand that was listed in the top ten labels of 2017. The company generates incredible bottles of water by using the natural powers of the volcanoes. To produce solid water and keep its customers happy, the company adds natural minerals in their brand. They also have an advantage of having a quick bottling process that ensures they have enough supply of the product. This company targets customers from Hawaii among other regions in the USA and other parts of the world. With this brand of bottled water, drinkers are assured of indulging in part of the Hawaiian Islands and perfectly produced water. This is because the water is siphoned through numerous feet of porous lava rock in the Mauna Loa.
The company’s founder, Ryan Emmons, was inspired by the Hawaiian culture, which gives more value to the people and land rather than just accruing wealth. Ryan’s inspiration was granted by the fact that his family had access to the Mauna Loa volcano, from which the water is derived. This also inspired the need to have a healthy and ethical alternative in the crowded water industry.
Waiakea and Degradable Plastic Bottles
Waiakea has plans to start using fully degradable water bottles next year. These bottles are believed to have a reduced lifespan by about 98 percent. The brand asserts that the technology used to make these bottles will change the entire CPG industry. These bottles use Time Plast, which is the first patented additive for plastic nano-degradation. Waiakea bottles are also 100 percent RPET, which means that they are made out of recyclable bottles.
Waiakea has gone deep into the spirit of positivity by taking part in numerous charities all around the globe. For instance, in partnership with Pump Aid, the company donates a week’s worth of water in remote places in Africa and other needy places all over the world for every liter they sell. This action has seen the company donate millions of gallons of water since its establishment in 2012 and does not seem to cease these efforts anytime soon. Waiakea’s charitable efforts and their eco-friendly activities are based on the Hawaiian tenet “Malama I kaAina,” which means care for the land.
