Water has surpassed colas and other types of soft drinks and is now the leading drink for a growing number of people. That’s a great trend, because the body uses water in just about every process it does. As a result, bottled water is a $100 billion a year industry. Sadly, billions of the plastic bottles in which the water is sold end up polluting the oceans and clogging landfills. Fortunately, there is a brand of bottled water that nourishes the body and the bottles in which it’s sold quickly break down and returns to their natural form. That brand is Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water.
Sourced from Hawaii’s Mauna Loa volcano, naturally filtered through volcanic rock and sold in biodegradable plastic bottles, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is an excellent choice for people who want the clean, healthy water they need without polluting the environment. Waiakea water is rich in electrolytes, silica and BPA free and naturally alkaline. Plus, a percentage of the company’s revenue is donated to community programs in Hilo on Hawaii’s big island where the water is bottled. The company also provides clean water to drought-plagued communities in Malawi and elsewhere in Africa to help meet the needs of the people.
Founded in 2012 by company president Ryan Emmons, Waiakea Water is a certified carbon neutral business. That means the business is environmentally safe. Plus, the silica the water contains can reduce people’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Emmons learned about the benefits of the water from this Hawaiian spring because his family vacationed there twice a year while he was growing up. He’s now giving people around the globe the opportunity to get this healthy, great tasting, water. Emmons is doing so through the socially conscious company he created. So far, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water has provided hundreds of millions of liters of clean water to communities where safe drinking water is difficult to find.
Through Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, Ryan Emmons is leveraging his background in business administration and entrepreneurship to create a commercially viable, caring company that is providing much needed water.
