Waiakea Water Takes Sustainable Packaging to a Greater Level

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water, the world’s greenest water, has taken a significant step towards environmental conservation. Waiakea Water is reported to begin using a fully degradable bottle in its packaging. The brand has reportedly praised their new technology, citing its potential to change the CPG industry globally. The new bottle has a reduced lifespan of about 98%, is 100% recyclable and uses TimePlast. The company will be the first to use TimePlast’s nano-technology in its packaging.

According to Ryan Emmons, the founder and CEO of the company, taking a unique approach to polymers enabled the process. He further pointed out that his company does not leave biodegradation process to nature: they support it right from manufacturing. The process turns polymers into a carbon based wax. Introduction of TimePlast has been cited to replace normal plastic’s chemical bonds with less complicated links. The end product is a bottle that is physically strong but very weak in terms of degradation.

Ryan has pointed out that the new bottle is cost efficient. He has, however, noted that the process was not a smooth one. Like any other new idea, this innovative approach presented significant challenges to the manufacturers but eventually they were sorted out.

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water

The company was founded by Ryan Emmons in 2012. The brand boasts of being the world’s first volcanic water of its kind. The Hawaiian company produces its bottled water through a unique and sustainable process that positively impact on the people and the environment.

The brand was created out of Ryan’s love for the Hawaiian culture. As a youth, Ryan spent his summers and winters in Hawaii, a place where the community values land and its people rather than wealth. He got access to the source of volcanic water, Mauna Loa volcano, the base of his inspiration to develop ethical and healthy product alternative. Waiakea water has since been distributed to several parts of the world including the US.

Ryan’s brand boasts of not only being the best product in the market but also the most charitable premium water in the world. Through its partnership with Pump Aid, the Company donates 650 liters of clean water for every single liter they sell.
