Waiakea Water Founder Proves Our Future is in Good Hands
We’ve all heard our parents and people much older than us proclaim their concern for the youth. They think we spend too much time on the internet. Social media is ruining our lives. Some of them even think young people are just plain hopeless. None of this can be said when it comes to Ryan Emmons, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Waiakea Springs.
For someone who was still a high school student just within the past five years, Emmons is showing maturity that rivals industry peers far beyond his young age. He spent his summers and winters in Hawaii with his family, and he caught the entrepreneurial spirit early on. According to Organic Authority, he launched Waiakea water in 2012 shortly after graduating from high school.
From those family vacations, Emmons realized that he and his family were drinking the most naturally pure water on earth. He an his family had access to water from the Kea ‘au Aquifer, which lies at the bottom of Mauna Loa volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island. Although there’s no denying that the product he had access to was as pure as they come, he still had a lot to prove in an industry that has been dealing with a lot of bad news lately.

Given the recent public information about the dangers of BPAs, plastic water bottles, and harmful contaminants in the water, it is fair to say that bottled water companies have become notorious among other sectors in the beverage industry. People watch them with a much more cautious eye than ever before. Some people have even stopped drinking bottled water altogether. Opting instead to drink water out of refillable, reusable bottles. Specialty Foods reports that with Waiakea Waters, Emmons has taken a different route that people have come to appreciate.
From the start, the product is naturally alkaline and loaded with minerals and electrolytes that come organically from the volcanic filtration process. Everything else from the shipping method down to the bottling process is designed in a way that lessens Waiakea’s carbon footprint on the planet. They’ve been so effective in doing this that they have become the first premium bottled water company to be certified carbon neutral.
Emmons has also teamed up with Pump Aid for an even bigger mission that affects people world wide. For every liter of Waiakea Water that is sold, they will donate 650 liters of water to people in countries where clean water in inaccessible.
At just 23 years of age Emmons is making an impact on the world that will influence future generations in positive way. I think it’s safe to say that with more young entrepreneurs like Emmons our future is in good hands.
