When you think about refreshing water and the big island of Hawaii in the great state of Hawaii, what is the first thing that comes to mind? If you imagine volcanoes you might not be far wrong. Hawaiian volcanoes are a good source of refreshing water. In fact water that is naturally processed through pressure provides the essential minerals that your body needs to remain healthy and active.
The founder of the company, Ryan Emmons, knew that the bottled water market was ready for a line of products that was pure and environmentally sustainable. He enjoyed the refreshing taste of the water as a child visiting Hawaii with his family. The pure magic of these waters intrigued him. He wanted to capture that pure, soft water taste without compromising the environment.
Emmons knew that he had a good product that would appeal to the health and environmentally conscious consumer. It wasn’t enough to package the water in the conventional way. He knew that many would-be consumers were getting away from bottled water due to environmental concerns. His company would be different.
He decided early on to provide packaging that was carbon neutral. This meant that he would use 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate instead of regular or virgin plastic bottle. His manufacturing processes would be CarbonNeutral® using far less emissions than other processing plants do.
The Waiakea brand of volcanic water has been recently named as the one of the top ten best volcanic water products in the world. It is a testament of Emmons’ and his partners’ passion to let the world enjoy its soft, unique taste while sustaining rural communities in Africa. His company partners with PumpAid to supply their water needs. Emmons rents the property where the water is processed and ensures that the water remains pristine for future generations.
