Ryan Emmons, founder and CEO of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, made an announcement on September 26, 2017, that will revolutionalize the world. After five years and 1,200 experiments, Waiakea has developed a fully degradable plastic that they will begin using in 2018. They are using a unique, advanced technology called TimePlast, which is the first and only patented nano-additive.
Ryan explained in an interview with DailyBeverage.com that Waiakea scientists arrived at this amazing discovery because they created a plastic that was simpler at the molecular level. Other companies attempt to create a stronger plastic that nature would degrade, but Waiakea created a weaker plastic by adding TimePlast during the manufacturing process, and the plastic degrades chemically in 15 years. Waiakea presently uses 100 Percent REPT or recycled plastic, but this regenerated nano-plastic is less expensive and will change plastic universally.
Entrepreneur Ryan Emmons founded Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water in 2012 when he was 22 years old. He discovered the volcanic springs in Hawaii where his family often vacationed. This live volcano has a spring that falls 1,400 feet through the porous rock collecting many minerals and electrolytes producing the naturally alkaline, volcanic water.
Ryan built Waiakea on three simple principles that have made Waiakea Water the number one bottled water in the world: Drink Healthy, Drink Sustainably and Drink Ethically.
Sustainability is a principle that the Millennial generation greatly appreciates, and it has contributed to the incredible success of Waiakea. Millenials purchase almost 85 percent of all Waiakea Water, and because Ryan is so dedicated to ethically improving the company and the world, more Millenials are attracted to Waiakea Water every day.
Ryan does not stop at sustainability; he is also a philanthropist. He donates water to underprivileged countries that do not have clean water to drink. He commits 600 liters of water for every liter sold, and, in addition, donates time and staff hours to build water wells around the globe. Today, Ryan has brought Waiakea into the worldwide news, the future looks bright for Emmons and Waiakea Water.
