Of course, these new bottles from Waiakea definitely beg a couple of questions: first, why wasn’t this idea thought of previously? The answer, says CEO Ryan Emmons, is simple: “First, most of the scientific research related to polymers over the last 70 years has always been focused on how to make them better and stronger and not simplified on a molecular level.”
However, by finding out a way to make these plastic materials use less complex molecules, they are now able to manufacture molecules that will only have a life span of 15 years versus the normal 1500 years. This new approach ensures that the plastic will degrade much quicker than mother nature could normally do it and will consist of a plastic that does not have such a massive ecological footprint.
Thus, to say that the makers of Waiakea Hawaiian Bottled Water are dedicated to conserving the environment for future generations would be an understatement. It is just indicator of a truly upstanding company that cares about giving back to the community.
Waiakea was began after Ryan Emmons and his family visited Hawaii and he realized that the water he was drinking truly something special. Emmons realized that something was missing in the bottled water industry, and he realized that many brands of bottled water were nothing more than just filtered city water.
The best bottled water comes naturally, from a source, and that is precisely what Waiakea’s water does. Emmons and his company realized they were on to something major, and that is why they have grown exponentially since their founding in 2012.
