Only 20 years ago, you might have wondered, how to bring water to class, but, today there are so many different brands of bottled water, it’s difficult to choose one. Most have a catchy phrase attached to the brand name to get you to buy their water, but Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is not just another water. Waiakea Water comes from the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii, and it is naturally mineral-infused and alkaline rich.

This Hawaiian volcanic water has amazing benefits in the volcanic water. Waiakea Water was founded by 22-year old college freshman, Ryan Emmons, and even as a young entrepreneur, he made the decision to base Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water on the slogan – “drink healthy, drink sustainably, and drink ethically.” This slogan is supported by millennials, and coincidently, they are his main customers.

Ryan took a huge step forward to start Waiakea at age 22. He rented the volcanic stream for the next 99 years, and he and his partner, Matt Meyer, started Waiakea, and now Ryan is CEO and manager. Waiakea sold 2,304 cases in the first year, and in 2017, the company was valued at $10 million. Ryan attributes his success to adhering to the slogan.
Simply put, the Waiakea Water is natural and healthy as it is infused with minerals as it rushes through the rocky volcano. Waiakea Water is miles above other companies in creating the plastic for bottles.
Last year Waiakea developed a form of plastic that disintegrates in 15 years, while the plastic used globally takes thousands of years to disintegrate. Many corporations who use plastic are eager to learn what Waiakea already knows about this process. Waiakea is leading the world in environmentally-friendly packaging.
And as for ethically, from the inception of Waiakea Volcanic Water, Ryan wanted to Give Back from his success. He is a young philanthropist and he donates 650 ML of clean water for every bottle sold to communities that are in need of clean water plus in other venues. Pumpaid is the charity partner, and to date, he has donated over 500 million liters of water to Africa.
