Bottled water is water that is bottled. Across America most people can find this product freely running from their own kitchen sinks. It may be packaged differently, labeled with various names, produced from different sources, and sold by various companies, but at the end of the day water is water. So how does a company, operating in an industry currently valued a hundred billion dollars, set themselves apart from the competition? They make the product unique.
Most bottled water companies follow 3 tenants to create uniqueness. Those tenants are as follows; the water has to come from an exotic location, has to be beneficial to the health of the person drinking it, and it has to care for the environment around it. Waiakea Water is a Hawaiian based bottled water company founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons. Its water is sourced from the Southwest side of the Big Island. This Source produces naturally filtered water that passes through the volcanic rock of Mama Loa. Situation makes it naturally alkaline, rich in electrolytes, and posting the perfect amount of silica. Exotic location, and health benefits of its filtration make Waiakea water stand out. But it does not stop there. Waiakea water happens to be the world’s greenest bottled water. Waiakea Water plant is 100% sustainable.
Waiakea Water plant is powered by sustainable energy, retrofitted to the greenest aspects imaginable, and actually benefits the environment around it rather than destroy it. It has also used since 2018 a revolutionary technology that increases the decomposition of its bottles. A Waiakea Water bottle is fully biodegradable. Whereas most water bottles will take a hundred years or so to completely break down, Waiakea water bottles break down in 15 years. In the world currently struggling with massive ecosystem problems as a result of water bottles being dumped carelessly, the fact that a company is producing bottles it will disappear within one person’s lifetime is incredible.
