Waiakea is bottled water company that was founded by a 22-year old young man in 2012. The company has been reported to have grown up to 4000% in past few years with the annual growth being at 170%. The bottled water has unique health benefits and contains minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium. The water from a pure, naturally-alkaline source has been shaking up the industry that has been dominated by older experienced people. The water has a PH of between 7.8 and 8.8, besides that, it is purely natural.
In addition to, Waiakea bottled water is delivered in environmentally friendly bottle packaging. The company boast of being sustainable, for instance, Waiakea water is packaged in a plant that achieves 33% renewable energy levels. Furthermore, the company plans to begin delivering the water in bottles that are fully degradable. This is a move that is going to cause a ripple effect in the industry.
The bottles are not only degradable but also recyclable. The lifespan of plastic is 1500 years. The new bottle is going to reduce this to as low as 15 years. The technology used to produce these new generations of plastics makes them weaker. The manufacturing of the plastic hastens the time plastic takes to degrade. This process results in plastic that is reliable, weak and recyclable; plastic that has a shorter ecological footprint.
Waiakea water is going to be the first company to use the TimePlast’s nano-additive with the packaging bottles. The founder of the company Ryan Emmons believes that environmentally sustainable water is the way the world should go. It is good to note that Waiakea also takes part in charitable giving as well. The company sends over 650 liters of clean water to areas in need of water.
The company has won several awards like the World Beverage Innovation Awards-Best Packaged Water, Best Corporate Social Responsibility and the Berkeley Springs International Water among others. It is the fasted growing and the most award-winning bottled water in the United States. Waiakea water knows its place in the society and the world it supplies. The saying charity begins at home is well understood by this premium green brand.
