Ryan Emmons realized while vacationing with his family in Hawaii, that the water he was drinking was unlike any water he had tasted before. This water is found in a natural spring at the base of the Mauna Loa Volcano. Near the town of Hilo on the island of Hawaii, it is a pristine water source that is filtered naturally over thousands of feet. W
hat happens when the water is filtered through a natural source is that it picks up minerals along its route enhancing the pure and pristine water with calcium, magnesium, potassium, and ideal levels of silica.
All of these minerals contribute to and protect the health of people who drink it. New You stipulated that the minerals are essential to the normal functioning of the human body and many waters do not contain these minerals in such a balanced content.
Emmons was and is careful to keep this pristine water in pristine condition by respecting it’s surroundings and maintaining a Carbon Neutral company. The facility that bottles the water uses over 30% renewable energy to run it, reducing emissions in this way. Learn more about Waiakea Water: https://twitter.com/waiakea
The other way Emmons is running an eco friendly bottled water is that all of the bottles are 100% recycled and recyclable, imitating the water cycle in it’s ability to renew itself completely. Not only is waiakea spring water responsible on this level but Emmons is also reaching out on a global level to extend it’s reach in providing clean drinking water to as many people as possible.
According to Gust, there are parts of rural Africa that do not receive a lot of natural rain, that do not have access to bottled water like Waiakea water, and do not have a lot of irrigation initiatives in place to provide tap water. Emmons has donated over 500 million liters of water to these parts of Africa so that people can have access to clean drinking water with systems called Elephant Pumps.
