The Widespread Success of Waiakea Water

Once in a blue moon, consumers come across a product or company that has instant appeal. Waiakea Water is one of those fresh, entrancing brands. Packaged in a cool ultramarine recycled bottle, it practically screams, “Drink me, I’m refreshing!” Branded as the first volcanic water brand in Hawaii, Waiakea is loaded with natural minerals and a fresh, almost sweet flavor. The company has soared to the top 500 of Inc 5000 list of elite companies, making Waiakea bottled water one of the fastest growing and successful companies in America.

Founded in 2012, by 22 year old entrepreneur Ryan Emmons, Waiakea’s success has been reflected by several awards since the company launched. Emmons, a young man with refreshing ideas and a social conscience was bound for success.Ryan has created a product people are drawn to, while being able to use his company to help impoverished countries. Socially responsible companies like Waiakea Water are a refreshing change in today’s world. By the end of 2017 Waiakea plans on having a fully biodegradable bottle further reducing their environmental foot print. For every liter of Waiakea sold the company donates 650 liters of clean water. In rural parts of Africa, Waiakea Water has partnered with Pump Aid to bring over 4000 life saving water pumps to people that would not otherwise have clean water to drink, wash and clean with.

This refreshing liquid, derived from Mauna Loa Volcano, is naturally loaded with minerals, a pure alkaline water. The process takes snow-melt and rainfall over 14,000 feet down the mountain through a natural porous lava filtration system. It is a young vintage water, taking less than 30 days to arrive from the source and that means the taste is light, clean and crisp. No worries for those consumers that live far away from Mauna Loa, Waiakea will deliver their product to your door with free shipping. This young company strives to create the best customer service that they possibly can, their customer service is even available to chat on their website. No wonder Waiakea Water has skyrocketed to the top of the bottled water brands.
