Only three years ago, some may have thought that the bottled water industry was soon to become obsolete. Environmental issues with the way in which bottles were manufactured greatly influenced the minds of consumers who had been growing more environmentally-conscious than ever.
When Ryan Emmons launched Waiaakea Water three years ago, his goal was to revolutionize bottled water in order to create a completely ethical, socially responsible and environmentally-friendly product. Clearly, he was onto something as the company has seen an astonishing 5,000 percent growth in its three short years on the market.
According to Organic Authority, when Emmons visited the Waiakea Springs while vacationing in Hawaii a few years back, he noticed something unique about the water. For one thing, it was clear to him that this water was coming from a completely sustainable source thanks to the unusually high amount of rainfall that this region sees each year.
Another thing that struck him was the water itself. Filtered through long stretches of volcanic rock, this water manages to pick up high levels of silica, a natural substance that has been linked to numerous health benefits including the prevention of dementia.
Additionally, high levels of electrolytes are found in this water. Learn more about Waiakea Water: https://www.10bestwater.com/brands/volcanic/
Emmons decided to bottle the Waiakea water and start a bottled water revolution. Knowing of the environmental issues caused by the mass manufacturing of plastic bottles, he created a manufacturing process that is completely carbon neutral and relies on the use of recyclable materials.
Further demonstrating the brand’s social responsibility, Emmons enlisted the help of Pump Aid, an organization devoted to providing underprivileged regions around the world with clean drinking water. Each time that a consumer purchases 1 liter of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, Pump Aid donates 650 liters of clean drinking water to an impoverished village in Africa.
The company’s social responsibility has undoubtedly contributed to its success. Emmons is planning to open a new manufacturing facility in Hawaii as the result of growing demand. Stores across the country now sell Waiakea Water.
