Since millions of water bottles get thrown into the ocean each year, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water wants to do things more consciously by using only 100 percent recycled bottles. By using recycled bottles, it takes 85 percent less energy to produce them. Their facility also uses renewable energy. They are always finding new ways to help out the environment without depleting it. When it comes to giving back Waiakea goes the extra mile. When a 650mL bottle of water is sold one weeks’ worth of clean drinking water is provided to rural disadvantaged communities in Africa.
Waiakea is a revolutionary brand that has invented and patented the world’s first ever fully degradable water bottle. It is well known that it takes quite some time for plastic to break down, 1,500 years to be exact. Waiakea Water’s new bottle will take only 15 years to fully degradable. It is an additive called TImeplast, they put on the already 100 percent water bottles to drastically weaken the plastic. It does not differ in quality and look with normal bottles. This painstaking process took over 1,200 experiments and 5 years to get the right formula down. See Related Link for more information.
The booming brand was co-founded by Ryan Emmons who designed the company to include a trifecta of goodness. They are socially-conscious, healthy, and environmentally friendly. The volcanic water has a lot of health benefits including the fact that it is naturally alkaline. One benefit of this alkaline is that it can help reduce the symptoms of acid reflux.
During family vacations to Hawaii Mr. Emmons realized how incredible the water he was drinking from his grandfather’s well. It was one of the purest, healthy, and delicious sources of water in the world and that creating a great business model around that would turn into gold.
