Waiakea Water Finds Success in the Bottled Water Industry

If you’re a health-conscious individual, or perhaps someone, who has a penchant for great tasting bottled water, you have probably heard of the Waiakea bottled water. It is great tasting, naturally sourced water derived from the Mauna Los Volcano, which is located on the beautiful island of Hawaii. As a relatively new company in the bottled water industry, Waiakea placed a considerable amount of emphasis on both the packaging and organic filtration process of their water, as a way to differentiate it from other brands already in the marketplace. These efforts have rewarded Waikea with unprecedented growth in the bottled water industry, valued at $100 billion. In fact, according to an article on forbes.com, the company has grown by 4,000% since being founded in 2012.

So, how did Waikea become so successful? It’s simple, they identified a void in an existing market and provided a product that met consumer demand. That being said, most people will want information related to how a particular product is sourced, and those who are environmentally conscious will want to know if producing that product is harmful to the environment. Waikea bottled water assuages consumer concerns by being as transparent as possible with respect to their manufacturing process. In order to produce and market their bottled water to consumers, the water must first undergo a natural filtration process. This process begins when snowmelt passes through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock; during this process, the water is naturally infused with minerals and electrolytes, making it not only refreshing but also chock-full of health benefits as well.

Waikea, as a company, is well aware of the impact that BPA (Bisphenol A) plastics have on the earth, as well as the human body. Studies have shown that the compounds that makeup BPA plastic can leach into foods and drinks, and may be harmful if consumed. In addition, BPA plastics are not rapidly biodegradable, and as a result, can pile up in landfills. So, what is the alternative? 100% RPET. It is the bottling process of choice for Waikea and requires far less energy to produce, which results in less manufacturing time and a lower carbon emission output. In addition, the 100% Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (RPET) is rapidly biodegradable.

 

Obviously, bottled water is in no way a new concept, but Waikea has managed to revolutionize the process in a way that resonates with many consumers. So, it should come as no surprise that the company has managed to achieve the level of success that they have.

Waiakea Water : Giving Back To The Earth And People

Waiakea water has gotten certified CarbonNeutral. They received this recognition due to the fact they use recycled materials. All of Waiakea bottles are made from a completely degradable plastic. What this means to the environment is these degradable bottles will break down in landfills, while regular plastic water bottles take more than 1,000 years. Waiakea’s plastic water bottles degrade in 15 years.

 

Waiakea takes care to monitor and control its carbon footprint on the earth, and hopes that in the future all plastic drinking bottles move to a more earth-friendly plastic.

 

Waiakea water is captured and bottled in Hilo, Hawaii. The water is filtered by volcanic rock from the Mauna Loa volcano. Because of this unique filtration the water contains electrolytes like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium, there is also a trace of silica. Silica adds a subtle velvety feel to water. Founder Ryan Emmons noted that research on silica demonstrated that consuming 10mg a day reduce the risk of certain disease, such as Alzheimer’s. Waiakea water contains 30 mg and has a pH range of 7.8 and 8.8, which means the water is naturally alkaline versus some companies that artificially alkaline their water.

 

Giving back has been a model for Emmons. His company has come together with Pump Aid. Pump Aid works with African communities to create clean water supplies. Clean water can improve sanitary conditions and with that, a better quality of life for the community.

 

Waiakea with Pump Aid brought 500 million liters of clean water to rural Africa, enough water to help over 1.35 million people. Not only do they work to provide water but also establish pumps, so communities can have their own source of freshwater. Get Additional Information Here, to learn more about the company

 

 

Emmons and Waiakea Water are outstanding examples of companies and leaders enhancing the world by reducing their carbon footprint, using recycled materials, and giving back to the earth and people.
