A few years back, several studies were released about the dangerous effects of mass consumption of bottled beverage products. As it turned out, the large amount of plastic bottles being consumed was harming the environment. Many thought that the age of the bottled water boom was over.
However, a new product landed on the market only five years ago that has revolutionized the water bottle industry forever. According to Global News Wire, it’s called Waiakea Water and in just three years it grew 5,000 percent.
There are many things that make Waiakea Water unique. For one thing, the water is derived from a completely sustainable source. Ryan Emmons, founder and CEO of the brand, discovered the Waiakea Springs while vacationing with his family in Hawaii.
The area in which these springs are located receives an unusually high annual rainfall, allowing the water to be constantly replenished.
Additionally, the water found in these springs boasts a remarkable nutritional content. With high levels of silica and various electrolytes, this water has significant health benefits including a decreased risk of developing dementia.
The water also has a significantly higher pH level than other popular waters, making this product highly alkaline, allowing it to heal various ailments in the body. Because of the water’s unique nutritional content, many customers find its sweet and unusual taste extremely appealing.
When Emmons bottled the water, he was determined to create a product that was as socially responsible as possible. He enlisted the help of Pump Aid to provide 650 liters of clean drinking water to underprivileged African communities for every 1 liter of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water sold.

Additionally, this bottled water product does not harm the environment. Baby Boomster revealed that the first bottled beverage to be certified carbon neutral, the manufacturing of Waiakea Water is completely environmentally-friendly. The bottles themselves are made using recyclable materials.
Clearly, Emmons’ dedication to social responsibility has paid off. The brand is selling its product in thousands of stores throughout the United States. Emmons is opening an additional manufacturing facility in Hawaii to satisfy high demand.
As customers demand now more than ever that food industry practices are environmentally and ethically friendly, Waiakea Water has set new standards in the beverage industry.
