Every few years, a new brand of bottled water emerges on the market, trying to distinguish itself from the rest with a unique backstory and location of origin. Soon, however, its popularity fades as consumers don’t consider the water different enough to justify the price.
A shining exception, however, is Waiakea Water, a brand of bottled water uniquely derived from Hawaiian volcanoes. Its founder, Ryan Emmons, has seen an astounding 5,000 percent growth since launching the product in 2012, and believes that its unique properties are to thank for its success.
According to Baby Boomster, The volcanic water comes from the Waiakea springs in Hawaii, and is naturally filtered over the course of thousands of feet of volcanic rock. This unusual source gives the water its unique taste that consumers are raving about, as well as health benefits that put the product in a class of its own.
At a pH level of 7.8 to 8.8, Waiakea water holds a high alkaline level which neutralizes harmful acids in the body. The water is also full of electrolytes, containing nutritionally-rich levels of magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium, in addition to 30mg of silica, a mineral shown effective in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s.
Additionally, due to the unique filtration process the water goes through, the product is free of many contaminants found in other common drinking waters.
Also adding to the company’s success is its charitable contributions. Working alongside Pump Aid, for every liter sold, the company donates 650 liters of clean water to African communities in need. Through its efforts, the company has managed to donate an incredible 500 million liters of water to Africa.
The company’s sense of ethical responsibility can also be seen in its revolutionary packaging. One of the first bottled water products to be completely carbon neutral, not only is the packaging completely recyclable, but the manufacturing process itself produces 90 percent less carbon emissions than competing bottled water companies.
Socially responsible, sustainable, and rich in nutrients, it’s no wonder that the brand doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Specialty Foods has it that Waiakea Water can currently be found in over 2,000 stores across America, and as international demand grows, the company is building a manufacturing facility in Hawaii.
The company is now valued at over $10 million, and founder Ryan Emmons will continue to focus on a product that is simultaneously sustainable, nutritious, delicious and charitable for a better world.
