Waiakea Water was founded in 2012. In a few short years, the company has been on the cutting-edge when it comes to being socially responsible. The company was founded by a twenty-two-year-old named Ryan Emmons. He saw an opportunity and took full advantage of it. Bottled water is one of the most popular drinks among customers today. Waiakea Water is one of the most popular products on the bottled water industry much to the chagrin of other beverage companies. With the popularity of bottled water at an all-time high the profits for the company have skyrocketed. One of the ways that Waiakea Water is maintaining it’s momentum in the industry is by becoming more socially responsible to the planet. Waiakea Water has just come out with a totally degradable bottle that will lessen the impact on the environment.
In September of this year, Waiakea has produced a fully recyclable bottle. The bottle will be available within a year. Ryan Emmons says that an ordinary plastic bottle takes a long time to decay. With the help of Waiakea’s partner company TimePlast, Waiakea’s water bottle can decay much faster. A normal plastic bottle can take over one thousand years to degrade naturally. This new bottle will totally decay in about fifteen years. This will greatly reduce the impact of plastic on the environment and help Waiakea become one of the most self-sustaining companies in the market today.
With the advent of this new bottle, Emmons hopes that it will revolutionize the market and become a regular part of the industry. The development of the project was five years in the making and took more than one-thousand-two-hundred experiments in the lab before finally getting it right. This is what persistence can do for a young company such as Waiakea.
Ryan Emmons and his team have single-handedly taken the bottled water industry by storm. Now the workers at Waiakea have taken another bold step in helping preserve the environment for future generations. Self-sustainability and being socially responsible put Waiakea Water ahead of the curve on protecting and preserving the earth. That makes consumers happy.
