Waiakea Water: An Emerging Leader

Water is a simple thing for most people. It is readily available, and most people buy bottled water for drinking. It is not so everywhere in the world. Companies that want to help those in need of fresh water are appreciated and celebrated in the society. One such company is Waiakea Bottled Water. This company from Hawaii holds high standards of water sourcing and other parts of their business. From the moment they source the water to the moment the last bottle hits the shelves, they are working tirelessly to reach new heights.

Leadership and Growth

Their growth is astonishing. Just between 2014 and 2016 the company market growth of more than 1059 percent. Their success is admired by other companies, and Waiakea Bottled Water was included in the list of Inc. 5000. It is a list which celebrates businesses like this, and now this volcanic water company is rubbing shoulders with Microsoft, Zappos and GoPro.

The CEO of Waiakea Bottled Water, Ryan Emmons, expresses his happiness and pride about this achievement. He says the standard can only go up now and his employees and colleagues agree. They work tirelessly to offer their customers an entire experience of a Hawaiian Volcanic water.

They are environmentally friendly, and their packaging is recyclable. The success strengthened the belief that the company can give back. They now work on innovation to find better and more eco-friendly ways to source their water.

Water Can be a Donation

Another important part of their job is charity. Waiakea Bottled Water donates 650 liters of water for every liter water bottle they sell. It just proves that there are more important things in business than revenue. People who work at the Waiakea cherish water and understand that some places on earth are not as blessed.

The company partners with Pump Aid to create and provide accessible solutions in Africa where water is scarce. Clean drinking water for everybody is one of their priorities, and they want to contribute to ending the thirst in Africa. This initiative inspires other companies to do the same and contribute to the cause. High standard and work ethic are two of the factors that help Waiakea Bottled Water grow, and they are not stopping anytime soon.

Wild Ark Wildlife Travel

My wife and I love SCUBA diving. When we lived in China for 13 months as foreign teachers we were able to travel to exotic destinations all around South-East Asia. One of our favorites was Mabul Island in Malaysian Borneo.


Surrounded by pristine water and friendly faces it was no wonder that this was one of the best and most eco-friendly places to dive in the world. Hawksbill and Green Sea turtle conservation efforts are steadily on the rise on this small island paradise. Learn more: http://wildarkonline.com/


The local Malaysians and some Filipinos living on this island once ate turtle eggs regularly as they are a prevalent source of food and can be used for a variety of dishes. But luckily local dive shops have pooled together to give money in exchange for every turtle egg turned over by the local Malaysians. In turn, this keeps the local turtle population safe from interference.
