A Look At How Waiakea Water Is Revolutionizing The Bottled Water Industry November 9, 2018

Most people who invest in the highly competitive bottled water industry, usually do so for the money but for the Hawaiian water company known as Waiakea water, it’s not just about the cash but is also about providing the world with high quality Hawaiian volcanic water.

How Waiakea Water Came To Be

When the founder and chief executive officer of Waiakea water, Ryan Emmons went to visit his family in Hawaii during a certain spring and summer break a few years back, he was taken back by the delicious, cool and natural tasting water he made while there. When his vacation was over, Mr. Emmons was determined to share this goodness with the world, and this is when he decided to establish the company that is now known worldwide as Waiakea water.

Why Waiakea Water Is A Big Deal

Today, Waiakea water is not just any other ordinary water company but a company that strives to offer the best not only to its consumers but also to Mother Nature. Established in 2012, Waiakea water offers consumers the best of nature through its water filtering process. Instead of establishing a water plant and adding artificial additives to make its water natural, the company uses a 14,000 feet porous volcanic rock of the Mauna Loa Volcano as its aquifer. Because it’s a volcanic rock, it boasts and enriches Waiakea water with natural minerals such as calcium, silica, and magnesium giving it its natural, distinctive and delicious taste and feel. Besides a great distinctive taste, the water has a natural pH and thus packs a ton of volcanic water benefits in each bottle.

Waiakea water also takes care of the environment by packaging its water using degradable materials. Unlike most bottled water companies which use bottles that take a 1000 years to degrade, Waiakea water packages its water in bottles that only take a decade and a half to fully degrade. Likewise, they give back to the community by donating clean drinking water to communities that cannot access it such as Malawi thus improving their conditions. Besides offering clean water, the company also donates funds to charitable foundations and organizations such as Pump aid. With such uniqueness and innovative methods in carrying out its operations, it is no wonder that the firm was recently awarded and even gained a segment on Good Morning America.

Waiakea Water Leads in Innovation Once Again with Industry’s First Eco-Conscious Bottle November 14, 2017

Next year when Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water changes to their new packaging it will not only be a major milestone for the company, but also for the bottled water industry on the whole. The reason for this is that Waiakea is going to become the first ever bottled water producer to use a bottle that is fully degradable. This massive leap forward in food and beverage packaging was not an easy thing to accomplish to be sure, but it will position Waiakea as the leader in the industry in terms of eco-friendly consumer marketing.

The secret to producing a bottle that is strong enough to survive the rigors of manufacturing and market placement, but which is able to break down easily was found not in a different type of plastic, but in a different type of manufacturing of the bottles. Waiakea is going to be the first distributor to use the patented TimePlast nano-additive which helps to facilitate the natural breakdown of plastics at a much faster rate than ever before. With the use of TimePlast, the plastic which comprises the bottles will have their lifespan reduced from 1500 years to only 15. This, combined with a new reduced package design and the fact that the bottles are already 100% RPET, meaning that they are made fully of recycled plastic to begin with, provides for a 98% eco-friendly packaging model that is sure to be copied by distributors in all markets of the food and beverage industry.

Waiakea is no stranger to innovation. The company is the first to bring natural volcanic spring water to the marketplace. They use a very fast bottling process which delivers the freshest product and they introduce natural minerals to the water which have been long believed by the island’s residents to be in part responsible for their long life and good health. The minerals are introduced via the one of a kind filtering process which passes the water through multiple layers of volcanic rock. This gives mimics the same process that the islands drinking water undergoes, which makes it among the most desirable in the entire world. The pure, clean taste and unique product qualities have made this one of the fastest growing market entries in recent years. Waiakea is not only the most popular bottled water brand in the state of Hawaii, but has found itself quickly growing to markets across the United States and even into the international arena.

Waiakea is not only changing the industry with its new bottle, but is also making waves so to speak, with its other corporate philosophies, which include being 100% carbon neutral, operating on a fully sustainable manufacturing model, and being ethically sound and socially conscious in everything that they do. Waiakea is sure to be an innovator and marketplace leader in the packaged beverage market for some time if they keep thinking outside of the traditional box, or in this case bottle.
