When bottled water first gained prominence no one really bothered with things like ph balance or alkaline. Now that the industry has reached a sum total of $100 billion dollars worldwide new incentive need to be taken. Essentially every bottled water company out there is selling the same product. So how do they stand out? By focusing on a winning trifecta. Making sure the water they sell is sustainable, healthy, and comes from an exotic locale. Hawaiian based bottled water company Waiakea water has all three in spades.
Waiakea was founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons. Emmons’ family frequented Hawaii and even had access to an aquifer in Kea’au. He noticed something was special about the water and decided to create a company and share it with the world. The aquifer is naturally occurring and reproduces at a face rate. This means that it is completely sustainable. Check one for Waiakea. The water is filtered through the porous rock of a volcano allowing Waiakea to be labeled Hawaiian volcanic water. Check two for Waiakea. Nothing more exotic than water from a volcano. The porous rock also makes Waiakea water 100% alkaline. This makes it some of the healthiest water to drink on the market. Check three for Waiakea water.
Alkaline water helps detoxify the body and has a wide range of health benefits. Water that is too acidic does not really help the human body. It is like iceberg lettuce which is basically just water. Not only does Waiakea set itself apart, it goes a step further.
The factory Emmons built to source Waiakea is self-sustaining as well. It runs primarily on renewable energy making Waiakea’s entire operations environmentally conscience. In addition Waiakea uses profits from its sales to deliver water to areas bereft of H20, aiding communities worldwide have access to clean water. This makes the Hawaiian volcanic water a great choice to make. Ryan Emmons cares a lot about the environment and believes in the health benefits of his water. Although these choices are made out of philanthropy, they also make Waiakea pretty tough competition on the bottle water market.
