Waiakea Water Bottles Will Become Nano-Degradable

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water initiated that they will begin using a fully degradable bottle next year. This environmentally-friendly move will ultimately reduce the lifespan of the packaging by a whopping 93%. Scientists have worked endlessly to create technology to change the packaging industry for the better. The new Waiakea bottles will also be a hundred percent recyclable and use the patented TimePlast, a nano-degradable additive for plastics. Waiakea will be the first company to merge with TimePlast and use them in their packaging. There were reasons that nano-degradation for plastics wasn’t created before in the past, mainly because scientific research and most companies always looked for a better way to create stronger plastics, not weaker. Regular plastics take thousands of years to fully degrade, these new Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water bottles will contain a much shorter ecological footprint. The brand new bottles will of course can be recycled with regular plastics and will evidently improve the recycling system.

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was co-founded by entrepreneur, Ryan Emmons, in 2012. He wanted a beverage company that was fully socially and environmentally conscious.
