Natural and pure water is something that we all strive to drink, right? Of course! What better way to have the world’s purest water, but to have it straight from the earth itself, or more specifically – a volcano.
Waiakea Water is a Hawaii-based bottled water company that was established in 2012. The company uses the ultimate filtration process of running the water through the Mauna Loa volcano. It can’t get any more natural than that, can it? The Waiakea Water company has also set the standard with being environmentally friendly. At some point this year, they will have the first completely degradable bottle and their bottles will be made with 100% completely recycled plastic. This means that for every 1,000 years it takes for a regular water bottle to degrade, the Waiakea Water bottles will only take 15 years! Amazing, right? Not only are they a bottled water company that has provided the purest water but they have also helped the environment exponentially with their degradable water bottles.
In addition to helping the environment, Hawaii volcanic water has health benefits as well. Because the Waiakea water is filtered through volcanic rock, it is naturally rich in electrolytes, such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, and silica. These minerals allow the waiakea water ph to be 7.6-8.8 which is naturally alkaline. This makes the water smooth to drink with a hint of sweetness. It is also known to be the freshest water since it is naturally filtered by the volcanic rock as it first starts as rain atop the Mauna Loa volcano.
Because it constantly moves down the volcano, it does not sit idly so there is no time for it to pick up unwanted dirt or other contaminants from an aquifer like that of the other bottled water companies.
So when you want to drink the freshest water that is natural in more ways than one, then try Waiakea Water’s Hawaiian volcanic water – your taste buds and body will be glad you did.
As hard to believe as it may sound, it is true that Waiakea the Hawaiian beverage company has finally been able to manufacture the world’s first degradable plastic bottle. Plastic water bottles are by far the leading cause of water pollution. By eliminating this hurdle, Waiakea has not only helped address a key environmental issue but also improved its business opportunity.
Waiakea’s degradable bottles have the potential of changing the whole world’s approach of plastic bottles. You may wonder how this beverage company has been able to achieve this great milestone that has taken scientist many decades to crack. The simple trick the company used was TimePlast the first and only patent in the market that makes their plastic bottles nano-degradable. This component helps break down from a thousand years the degradable clock of plastic to only fifteen years according to Waiakea founder.
Despite the fact that Waiakea’s degradable bottle has a weaker bond compared to normal bottles the manufacture was keen to ensure that it still retained the properties found in ordinary bottles. While this may seem easier in layman’s language in the actual sense, it’s not, but Waiakea nonetheless was able to succeed. It took the company over 1,200 experiment and five years of testing before finally approving this bottle. Note, in addition to Waiakea’s bottle being degradable; it is also one hundred percent recyclable.
Waiakea Water is a beverage company founded by Ryan Emmons in 2012 to help people enjoy the cool and enriching water from Hawaii. The water packaged by Waiakea is single sourced from the Hawaii Island. Unlike other water, Waiakea’s is rich in nutrients and studies confirm that they help in the sustainable development of the body.
In addition to selling water, Waiakea is in the business of manufacturing its bottles. The Waiakea’s degradable bottles are a great addition to the environmental conservation efforts the company is committed to meeting. In addition to being degradable, they are cost-friendly to any person within the economy.
Currently, Waiākea is headquartered in Culver City, California and has an employee population of 11-50 staff. The company is committed to its mission of providing its customers with sustainable water till date.
