Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water: Ensuring Sustainability

As from next year, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water will begin using fully degradable bottles. This will reduce the packaging’s lifespan by 98 percent. According to the brand, scientists are now approaching the concept of packaging from an entirely different angle by creating technology with the potential of transforming the worldwide CPG industry. The bottle is 100 percent recyclable.

Waiakea will be the first company to use TimePlast, the only patented additive used in nano-degradation of plastic. This technology had not been invented because most of the scientific research on polymers majorly focused on making plastic better and stronger, and not weaker. Additionally, most of the conventional ‘sustainable’ approaches to handling plastic pollution are always aimed at making the plastic degradable. Instead of subscribing to these notions, Waiakea doesn’t rely on nature to degrade plastic. Instead, they degrade it chemically at the manufacturing stage to accelerate the process of nature.

Waiakea is a water brand from Hawaii. The company uses natural volcanic power to manufacture incredible water bottles. Other than the fast bottling process and additional natural minerals, the company focuses on solid water and happy customers. Their operations are not limited to Hawaii or the U.S. alone, but distribute their products to suppliers from other countries craving for a taste of the high-quality water.

Founded in 2012, the company produces bottled water through sustainable, unique processes that enhance positive effect on the world and its inhabitants. Ryan Emmons, the company’s founder, derived inspiration from the Hawaiian culture. The community’s incumbent values emphasize on the environment and the people rather than wealth accumulation alone.

Alongside the socially conscious and eco-friendly foundation, efforts the corporation contributes to a number of charities, putting more emphasis on the spirit of positivity. For instance, through its partnership with Pump Aid, the company donates 650 liters of clean water in areas of need for every liter they sell.
