Waiakea Water; the Most Unique Bottled Water Brand in Existence

The bottled water industry across the globe is reportedly worth more than a hundred billion dollars. The largest consumer of the bottled water is the State of Brazil with other nations following behind closely. Perhaps the reason behind the vastness of the industry id the fact that several companies are coming up with different brands of bottled water. It goes without saying that the variety of brands of bottled water in the market goes beyond any other product. A few years back, the idea of selling bottles was a laughable idea considering the fact that many countries had just adopted the use of filtered and treated tap water. However, several establishments have come up with unique ways to make their products stand out in ways that they cannot be compared with tap water. Some use vitamins, while others use tangling products while others also use a filtration process that is unique. One of these unique brands is Waiakea water.

About Waiakea Water

Waiakea Water is produced by a water bottling company that is situated in Hawaii. Waiakea is actually a term in the Hawaii language which translates to broad waters. The fact that this brand is one from Hawaii and employs the Hawaii culture is one way that it stands out. However, the most unique feature about this brand of filtered water is their filtration process. The water that is used by this company which was established six years ago is actually volcanic water. The Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water goes through a filtration process that involves the water being run through a fourteen thousand feet porous volcanic rock found in the Mauna Lao Volcano in Hawaii. Perhaps this is the most unique bottled water brand in the industry since no other brand can boast of selling volcanic water.

The other unique factor about this brand is the fact that they employ the use of degradable plastic bottles. This goes a long way in helping reduce the negative impact that actual plastic bottles have had on the environment. This is actually the first company to ever use plastic bottles that are completely degradable and use 100% recyclable plastic material.

Whitney Wolfe – Promoting Feminism Through Positive Change

Whitney Wolfe Herd is one of Time’s top 100 People of the Year. She’s an entrepreneur, a feminist, a tough business lady, and she’s under 30. Wolfe is turning the tech world upside down and changing lives as she goes.

Whitney Wolfe was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah then went to college at SMU in Dallas, Texas. The next part of her business background she might want to forget, but it did lead her down a path to Bumble so it could be worth it. Wolfe helped launch the dating app Tinder as co-founder in 2012 and began dating one of the other creators. That went downhill then she was roped into a lawsuit all about money, power and horrible words thrown around via text. After crashing and burning at Tinder, she began to think about an app that put the ball in the woman’s court when dating. Her app slowly transformed into Bumble. The guy can’t even message a woman without her messaging him first. Tinder was all about the man reaching out, or if the woman did first, she might be desperate or sleazy. Bumble wasn’t about desperation. Now worth over $1 billion, Bumble remains a popular dating app to connect where it just so happens women get the first move.

Whitney Wolfe didn’t meet her husband on Bumble though. She actually met her husband, Michael Herd on a ski trip in Colorado where he made the first move playing like he was a bad skier and needed her help. They married in 2017 in Positano, Italy.

Bumble doesn’t just stop at matching potential romantic couples. They just launched Bumble Bizz helping women build connections in the professional world. It’s female centered hoping to leave any sexual harassment problems in the dust. Bumble BFF was launched as a way to match potential best friends instead of romantic interests. It pairs you with friends of the same gender whom may have the same interests.

Whitney Wolfe and her apps could lead to more positive changes in the #metoo movement. Bumble empowers women and puts them at the head of the table, something not many apps have been able to do. Wolfe Herd keeps moving forward and promoting feminism and entrepreneurship throughout the world.
