Ryan Emmons founded Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water in 2012. He comes from the native side of Santa Barbara, California. He came up with this idea during his freshman year in University of Santa California Marshall School of business. He ventured into this with his buddy Matt Meyers who became part of the board of directors. His idea was prompted during his youth age when he was spending with his family in Hawaii. He knew he was sitting on a million dollar idea because the water there was healthy, pure and sustainable.
Its natural source comes from the southwest of the town Hilo on the Hawaiian island through the feet of the Mauna Loa volcano. Since it comes through the volcano, it contains tons of minerals in it like magnesium, calcium, and potassium. They all contribute to healthy bones, skin, hair, and nails. It also contains an ideal amount of silica that lenders a soft and silky mouth-feel of the water.
This product is sustainable, bears unique health benefits, and it is eco-friendly, even with its packaging. He has partnered with Pump Aid where he gets to donate about 650 milliliters of water to the communities in Africa that require it. That’s after every sale of a bottle of water. The valuation of his company is about 10 million dollars.
This company is the first to use the timeplast additive during its manufacture. Its primary purpose is to produce a non-degradable item that is made out of recycled bottles. From Emmons perspective on why this product was not invented earlier is that the scientist previously focused on making plastic stronger rather than weakening it. Mr. Emmons says that it was quite challenging to create it. They had to find a patent that was approved by the USPTO and similarly very degradable.
The time plast additive was meant to reduce the ecological footprint of the plastics during production and recycling too. Since it is Eco-friendly and favors the economy, it has become favorable to many people. Its incumbent values make it have a global importance.
