Premium bottled water company, Waiakea Water continues to attract attention not only for the unique taste of its water but also for its positive environmental initiatives.
The Hawaiian company was launched in 2012 as a joint venture between Ryan Emmons and his college friend Matt Meyer. Meyer, who is no longer active in the company, remains on the board of directors at Waiakea.
Under the leadership of Emmons, Waiakea has grown 4000 percent over the past five years. The company’s name is derived from the words wai akea which stands for broad waters.
One of the most crucial features of Waiakea’s water is that the water is volcanic water. After the water passes through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock within Mauna Loa, it grows to be full of minerals such as potassium, calcium and more. Health benefits also take in the best possible amounts of silica. (More: specialtyfood.com/organization/waiakea-inc)
Waiakea Water is well-recognized for the attention to detail the company displays with regard to their plastic water bottles. For example, roughly three percent of its revenue is allocated for local community projects. And for each bottle of Waiakea water that is purchased, the company contributes one week’s supply of clean water to people without water in Malawi.
By next year Waiakea Water will be bringing into play the world’s first entirely degradable bottle.
According to the story there are more than eight million tons of plastic that are carelessly disposed of yearly worldwide.
Addressing this issue, Waiakea Water has partnered with TimePlast to work on an original additive that will make it possible for plastic bottles to degrade 97 percent faster than the customary bottles.
With an ordinary plastic water bottle, more than 1,000 years are necessary for the bottle to decompose into the environment. As part of the collaboration, Waiakea’s plastic bottles will disintegrate in just about 15 years.
Waiakea Water takes pride in its initiatives that take in continuing a sustainable, environmentally friendly business plan. Waiakea Water has been awarded the Good Morning America Top 10 Most Innovative Food Companies; National Restaurant Association – Food and Beverage Innovation Award, among others.
