Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was founded in 2012 by CEO Ryan Emmons. Their mission is to provide premium water all the while promoting a very eco-friendly and ethical environment. The water is made from the snow-melt and rain from the snow-capped active volcanic peak of Mauna Loa in Hawaii. The water is naturally filtered through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock. This allows the water to become naturally enriched with various minerals and fortified with electrolytes. The pH balance of the natural alkaline waters is 8.8, one of the most alkaline rich in the world.
The brand is super healthy and very sustainable. The company’s water source recharge rate is at 1.4 billion gallons per day. This is the first company to produce Hawaiian volcanic water and distribute it to the masses. The company is the only American bottled water brand to achieve a CarbonNeutral certification. Waiakea water has also been the most awarded beverage in North America since their start.
Not only is the company healthy and eco-friendly, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is very charitable. The company donates 650 liters of clean water to the countries in need around the world for every bottle sold. This was initiated after the company has partnered up with the charitable organization, PumpAid.org. Waiakea’s motto is “Drink Healthy, Drink Sustainably, Drink Ethically, Drink Waiakea.”
