Waiakea Hawaiian Vocanic Water is breaking ground in the water world. Founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons, he wanted to create an environmentally sustainable water that also give back to those in need.
Waiakea water is collected from rain and snowmelt from the snowcapped peak of the active Mauna Loa volcano. It is one of the purest places on earth. It has a completely natural volcanic filtration system that humans could not replicate. Waiakea springs water passes through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock and is rich with calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
This water actually benefits hair, nails, bones, and skin. Who wouldn’t love that? It is alkaline and electrolyte rich making it super healthy for the body. It even helps with acid reflux and osteoporosis. Priced modestly at $1.79 for a half-liter and $2.79 for a full liter it is cheaper than most of premium water companies.
According to Baby Boomster, not only is Ryan Emmons a young entrepreneur, but he cares about people too. With every water bottle sold, Waiakea Water donate to communities that are in need of clean drinking water through PumpAid. 500 million liter of water have been donated to such communities in Africa.
Worried about all those pesky water bottles been thrown away? Good news, it takes 85% less energy to manufacture and are made from 100% recycled water bottles. The water itself is not being depleted because it regenerates in about 30 days. Not too shabby!
The company is worth an estimated $10 million and has grown 4000% in 3 years. Not only that, but Emmons was only 22 when he launched the company! They have launched in 4 new countries in two new continents, expanding on their current success.
A water that is socially conscious, environmentally friendly, and just plain good for you, is going to last when other water bottle companies will fall to the wayside.
