Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is setting a new bar in both quality of water and in what it means to develop an eco-friendly water bottle. The company was founded just a few short years ago by Ryan Emmons. Ryan is still in his twenties and after visiting Hawaii and doing a deep amount of research on the volcanic water benefits, he sought out an economically feasible way to launch Waiakea. In just a few short years Waiakea has made a splash and is now rolling out on shelves of lifestyle grocery stores as well as being available to order.
Waiakea offers a multitude of volcanic water benefits that are unlike anything the world has seen before. The water is bottled from one single volcano that is actually still active. In addition to being bottled from a live volcano, the process is also unique due to the fact that the source is completely sustainable. The water naturally replenishes itself at a volume of 1.4 billion gallons a day. Unlike many springs that get drained eventually, which harms the rest of the surrounding environment, the water from Waiakea comes from the ice caps and snow on top of the volcano that automatically replenish themselves.
Waiakea water is also unique due to the fact that the water actually collects minerals as it runs down the volcanic rock on the side of the volcano before it is collected to be bottled. The minerals collected make the water incredibly alkaline, which studies are finding out is a key to your body’s overall health. Unlike many waters that include additives to make the PH Level a certain way, Waiakea gains its alkaline level in a pure and natural way, thanks to the volcanic rock, which is centuries old.
Waiakea Hawaiian volcanic water was recently featured in Affiliated Dork discussing the truth behind Waiakea Water. The article dug deep into the fact that many water bottles claim to be sustainable, yet actually take 1,000 years to actually degrade. However, this year Waiakea will release the first ever fully degradable water bottle that is made of 100% recyclable materials. These water bottles will take a maximum of 15 years to fully degrade in an eco-friendly way.
