Not all people are excited about bottle water nowadays. The veil has been pulled back on the bottled water industry and people are learning that a lot of companies just get their water from the tap. That is why you really have to do your research about each company and find out where they source their water. On the that note, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water is a step above the rest sourcing their water from Mauna Loa, which is a volcano in Hawaii. This incredible water filter through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock naturally infusing it with vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. Because of this it is naturally alkaline sitting at 8.2 on the pH scale. Other water bottle companies do not fair as well ranging from a very low 4 to a balanced 7. Beverages start eating away at the teeth as 5.5, so you could only imagine how bad ranking at 4 is. When drinking water is alkaline is accompanies a number of health benefits including that it helps ease acid reflux. It has to be naturally alkaline though, not man made.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water has some exciting news. They have invented and patented the world’s first fully degradable water bottle. It is actually an additive they put on their bottles that drastically cut down their degrade time over 1,000 years, from 1,500 years to 15 years.
This whole process took over 1,500 experiments and five years. It was also difficult to patent this incredible invention, not even huge corporations could make it happen. The team at Waiakea Water was dedicated though and followed through. They will start releasing the new bottles coming next year. Ryan Emmons, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Waiakea Water is excited about the new changes his company is making and is going to continue to strive to make Waiakea a household name.
In this day and age plastic is made to be strong, durable, etc. Waiakea Water has quite a challenge on their hands, making the plastic so that is could very easily break down, but strong enough to work just as well as traditional bottles. They also do not look any different than their counterparts.
