Bottled water has changed over the years by either having added ingredients to enhance the taste, having the water being drawn from a special area or how the bottle is produced. Waiakea Water is a different kind of bottled water out there. The main difference is that the bottled water comes from Hawaii. The name is even particular to the Hawaiian society. Waiakea means broad waters. Another difference is that water is filtered in a unique way. The water is from the Mauna Loa volcano! Bottled water companies had improved somewhat to their bottles by getting out harmful chemicals out when they produce the bottles, but one thing they haven’t done is figure out how to downgrade the waste of plastic bottles. Waiakea Water has figured that out. They are the first bottled water company to have degradable bottles! The bottles are also of recycled plastic. Waiakea Water also uses low-emission transportation when distributing the bottled water.
Waiakea Water was founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons. Within three and half years, the company sold 122,400 cases of water. That is up from 2,304 cases of water. The increase is due to distributors like Whole Foods. Presently, Waiakea Water has 10 million dollars in earnings. The reason volcanic water is good for you is that the water has natural minerals of magnesium, potassium, and calcium. The water also has electrolyte and alkaline which will help people with acid reflux and help fight osteoporosis. Waiakea Water plans on expanding to four other countries in the future.

Waiakea also helps with the aid in Africa. With every liter of water that is sold, they donate water to Africa and around the world. Waiakea Water partnered with a non-profit group called Pump Aid. Pump Aid installs pumps where areas need water. Pump Aid concentrates one place in particular Malawi. Malawi is one of the least developed counties. Pump Aid has installed 4,200 pumps in Malawi. Pump Aid also teaches the people how to install the pumps themselves. With Waiakea Water partnering with them, Pump Aid can continue to bring water to people in need.
