By next year, Waiakea Volcanic Water will be using a fully-degradable bottle.The bottle is 100% recyclable and uses Timeplast, the only additive for no-degradation of plastic which is cost negligible. Timeplast breaks plastic’s chemical bonds substituting them with less complicated links which drops the plastic’s lifespan from 1,500 to 15 years. Waiakea is the first water company which willuse Timeplast.
Waiakea Water is a Hawaiian company which was founded in 2002. It was established to produce bottled water through unique ways. Ryan Emmons, the founder, got inspired when his family moved around Mauna Loa Volcano where volcanic water is derived. He got an idea of processing and packing the water with creative ways that are harmless to the people.
Moreover, Waiakea takes part in charitable events. Through its partnership with Pump Aid, Waiakea donates 650 liters of clean water for every single liter they sell to place with water scarcity problem. Waiakea has contributed over a million gallons of water and has subscribed to “Malam I KaAina” Hawaiian tenant which means “Care for the land.”
Waiakea brand is respected and built on sustainability principle. Ryan is positive that in future Waiakea will be producing the cleanest water. The water will be processed and packaged in a way that is not detrimental to the environment and people.
