One of the best things Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is known for right now besides its unique origins and taste is the packaging. This water is packed in a plastic bottle that is made to be both durable and fully degradable. The bottle is made with patented technology which involves using TimePlast as an additive to speed up the nano-degradation of plastic. Waiakea bottles thus fully degrade within 15 years which is an impressive improvement from the great 1,500 decades conventional plastic takes.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is headed by CEO Ryan Emmons who also co-founded the company in 2012. At only 25 years old Ryan Emmons has built a successful company centered around environmentally sustainable practices. This is rare for many businesses. The water originates from Mount Mauna Loa’s active volcano.
The water comes from melting snow and the rain. This water is rich in minerals that dissolve in the water while traveling through volcanic rocks. The water is therefore rich in calcium, potassium and magnesium. Waiakea water also contains electrolytes making it one of the healthiest brands of drinking water.
The Mauna Loa volcano and its surroundings are one of the cleanest environments found on earth. This water is collected from a well from where it is transported for packaging. The packaging bottles are already made from recycled plastics in addition to being fully degradable.
Waiakea Volcanic Water invests heavily into giving back to disadvantaged communities. For every purchase made on their bottled water, 650Ml of clean water goes to communities that need the essential commodity. Communities in rural Africa have benefitted dramatically through Waiakea Water’s PumpAid. More than 500 million liters of water have been donated to African communities as a result.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water has created a massive precedence in the environmental conservation and sustainable business practices. With the nature of their product and packaging, it is a product to emulate. During the manufacturing of the bottle, one pound of TimePlast is sufficient to alter the structure of thousands of pounds of the plastic material. Thus the conversion technology is even more environmentally friendly.
