Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water

Waiakea Water is making headlines as a bottled water company for sustainability, environmental friendliness, and philanthropy. All in five short years, beginning production in 2012. The idea began when Ryan Emmons realized the water his family drank while in Hawaii had very special qualities.


Emmons and a friend, Matt Meyer, began researching the viability of bottling this gem as a college project during the fall of his freshman year at University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. The difference is not in the flavor but the texture of the water, which leaves the mouth feeling soft. The silica, 30 mg, is what gives it the soft, silky feeling. Silica, the other mineral contents, and pH are what make it extremely healthy. This texture of Hawaii volcanic water stems from the path the water takes to reach land surface.

Volcanic water benefits by passing through 14000 feet of the Mauna Loa volcano, gaining rich mineral content along that way that is unequaled anywhere else in the world. Waiakea water pH is between 7.8 and 8.8, higher than the 7.0 of “pure” or “purified” bottled water, making it naturally alkaline. Mineral composition shows it contains sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and an almost ideal amount of silica. All combine to produce a drinking water that helps support the balance of fluids in the body. Studies show water high in electrolytes and alkaline can help fight osteoporosis and provide aid with the symptoms of acid reflux. Emmons says, “Studies show that drinking 10 mg/day of silica in water can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by 11%.” View Additional Info Here.


They also have the world’s first biodegradable plastic bottle, made from 100% RPET. While other plastic water bottles are known to take more than 1000 years to degrade in our environment, this bottle will break down in only 15 years. A vast improvement for our landfills.


Waiakea Water has partnered with Pump Aid to donate 650 liters of clean water. Pump Aid is a charity that aids people in Africa by improving the quality, availability and use of water with communities in need.

Waiakea Water: Breaking The Boundaries–A Whole New Level Of Bottled Water

Certainly, a Whole New Level of filtration and purity! Waiakea Water is sourced from none other than Hawaii, which some would say feeds your soul. At 14,000 feet, the magic begins; a snow cap, or a raindrop, makes its way down the rocky slope of the Mauna Loa active volcano, cascading over and through natural volcanic rock. Pure water starts this journey, and at the end of its adventure, a better water emerges. Minerals are picked up along the way, which positively affects the Waiakea waters pH.

The founder of the company, Ryan Emmons, along with his partner Matt Meyer, are proudly donating clean water to communities that are without potable water, with every bottle sold. The company’s growth has exploded to 4000%! There must be something to this volcanic water thing!


Waiakea Water benefits are undeniable. It is loaded with minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium, as well as being a naturally fantastic source of alkaline and electrolytes. Studies have suggested that drinking water that is alkaline, can improve acid reflux, improve circulation, and it may even improve diabetes and aging! Further testing is needed, but proponents swear by it.


Waiakea is sweeping the nation and soon other nations as well. The company is currently valued at $10 million bucks! Perhaps their environmentally conscious standards are playing a critical role here, with 2018 bringing forth a fully degradable plastic bottle. All of their bottles are made with recycled material, Waiakea Water is CarbonNeutral, meaning the eco-friendly manufacturing process and overall environmentally sound company offsets the emissions that it takes to haul the water to its bottling location.


Waikea Water can also improve your wallet, if you are a regular bottled water drinker, since it is just as affordable as the plain filtered water producing tons of plastic bottle waste. Let’s face it, there are way too many plastic bottles ending up in our landfills, oceans and soils. If Waiakea Hawaii Volcanic Water brings us a fully degradable plastic bottle, it will be a new level of bottled water that soon others will have to follow. Waiakea prides itself on using high-grade 100% RPET, or recycled polyethylene terephtalate, for all of its bottles. RPET is post-consumer recycled plastic and has incredible environmental advantages.
