Along with its own successes, the company is paying it forward: every time a liter of the water is sold, they donate 650 liters to underprivileged people and communities around the globe. In addition, the eco-conscious group encapsulates the water with recycled RPET bottles and has claimed the title for being certified as “CarbonNeutral.” By emitting no carbon footprint, using the plastic raw material is an environmentally sustainable practice that further broadcasts its ethical purpose to consumers.
Ryan Emmons, CEO and founder of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, is delighted at the outstanding production of 120,000 packages of life-saving water per year, a 4,000 percent from the company’s fledgling start in 2012. He attributes much of its marketing success due to the fact that they have shipped over half a million liters of the nutrient rich water to Africa.
Adding to these achievements, the philanthropic-conscious enterprise has witnessed a steady annual increase of 170 percent, paying off high dividends from reputable distributors such as Whole Foods and partnerships with Pump Aid. Totaling its current value at over 10 million dollars, the attractive tropical island water company has turned it’s three-pronged approach of healthy living, environmental conservation, and ethical practice into an internationally recognized brand.
