Waiakea Water Brings Sustainability and Water to the World

Waiakea Water was founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons. This company has thrived despite being among big brand names in the beverage industry. The company has a three bottom line philosophy. This means they care about their social, environmental and financial returns. They are not concerned with only financial aspects of their company. Waiakea Water‘s effort to put the social and environmental impact of their company on the forefront of their ideology is what sets them apart from other brand names, where the social and environmental impact is often put on the back burner.

Waiakea Water is as delicious as it sounds. It comes from a very sustainable source – volcanoes. The volcanic water is purified by passing through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock. This process enriches the water with valuable minerals that your body needs.

The annual growth of the company has grown to %170. Aligning with their founding philosophy of the three bottom lines, they have financial, social and environmental returns. Socially, they have donated water to help end thirst around the world. Environmentally, they make sure their impact is small, by sourcing from a sustainable resource like volcanoes. They are furthering their sustainable efforts by creating the worlds first fully degradable water bottle.

This new water bottle could reduce the time it would take to degrade from more than 1000 years to a mere 15 years. This is an amazing improvement in waste management. Bottles that can degrade within a human beings lifetime makes the dream of sustainability more vivid and clear. TimePlast is the company that created this degradable bottle. It took them hundreds of experiments and five years to perfect the bottle. TimePlast chose to launch with Waiakea Water because of their social and environmental consciousness. The future is bright for Waiakea Water, and the worlds’ future is a little bit brighter because of them.
