About Waiakea Water

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons after he was mesmerized by the water he consumed when visiting Hawaii. He learned that the source provided the water with all the natural minerals it could have. Sourced from the Big Island of Hawaii and trickling over the Mauna Loa volcano, Waiakea Water is one of the highest mineral-enriched water in the world. The process leaves it purified with an alkaline taste that is good to the mouth.

Waiakea Water is a leader in adopting eco-friendly approaches in their operations. It is notable that the sourcing and packaging are sustainable. The company is set to adopt the use of biodegradable bottles by close of this year. Planting trees as well as limiting carbon emissions is the company’s daily endeavor. These efforts have led the company to receive numerous accolades, including the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative and Best Packaged Water among others. Waiakea Water seeks to drive its goal of clean water for all across the globe. In Africa for instance, the firm works with Pump Aid to provide clean water to the unprivileged.
