Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was started in 2012 as a triple bottom line premium water. It promotes health and life sustainability. The company seeks to promote meaningful, positive changes for people with their product. The goal is to move away from one profit goal, to three bottom line targets, which include people and the planet.
Since the company’s beginning, the emphasis has been on innovation. In 2015, the water was the most awarded beverage in North America. The company’s goal is to offer healthy, delicious, Hawaiian Volcanic Water to the public, with the least environmental impact. Waiakea’s slogan is “Drink Healthy, Drink Sustainably, Drink Ethically.”
The water comes from snowmelt as well as rain from the peak of the Mauna Loa Volcano. This is one of the purest environments, anywhere. The pure water is filtered through volcanic rock that gives it its trace minerals. It is electrolyte rich and alkaline.
Waiakea water is the first American bottled water to be certified Carbon Neutral, because of its 100 percent RPET packaging, sustainable sourcing, and regional reforestation initiatives. The company sets high standards and continues to improve on them. Since their 2012 launch the company has realized a 5000 percent growth. In 2015, the company added its water to nearly 2000 stores in 30 states in the U.S. A new manufacturing plant will be opened in Hawaii to meet the increased demand.
Founder, Ryan Emmons, is proud of the results, because it allows the company to donate 500 million liters of clean water to under-privileged communities in Africa. The company in partnership with Pump Aid, donates 650 liters of clean water for each liter sold.
