Waiakea Volcanic Bottled Water Company and Container Innovation

Bottled water that has been packaged in traditional plastic containers has never been what one would call environmentally friendly, regardless of what many producers claim. All of the research that has been conducted since the inception of plastic containers has been directed at making the bottles stronger and heavier. This enhancement only makes the bottle more resistant to natural forces when a container is discarded.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKXsPKGtL_I

Traditional producers have also commonly been reluctant to use recycled plastic as well, usually opting for new bottles manufactured from new polymers. This not only occurs in the water industry, but happens in practically all of the products packaged for sale in plastic. But, the Waiakea Volcanic Bottled Water Company may be about to change that trend with their new patented plastic container.

Waiakea Water was issued a patent in 2015 for a product they call Timeplast that is being used as an additive to their already recycled plastic when their water containers are manufactured. Instead of waiting for a natural degradable process that takes up to 1500 years, the new additive begins the breakdown process and lowers the time span to approximately 15 years. It is a plastic container modification that has taken over five years to fully test.

Waiakea Water began in 2012 as the brainchild of 22-yr old CEO Ryan Emmons who had realized growing up in Hawaii that the local bottled water products were much better than the imported brands available on the market. His notion was simply to catch his primary water supply from the foot of the Mauna Loa volcano that is still active on the island. It is considered one of the most pristine water resources in the world. The company has since been recognized by Forbes Magazine in 2015 for exponential growth over the first three years of company existence.

The benefit of using Mauna Loa runoff is that the water travels over the massive collection of volcanic rock and extracts the minerals from the rock in transition down the mountain. The primary marketing idea was that great bottled water begins with a great original water supply, and now that forward thinking has the company positioned to become an innovator in the entire plastic container industry in addition to their nutrient-rich water product.

The Role of End Citizens United in Reforming the Campaign Financial Systems

The End Citizens United is an action political reform group that focuses on eradicating unhealthy extravagance in the politics. It raises funds, which are directed to financing campaigns and courses of Democrats and other political reform activities. The group does not accept donations of more than $5000 from a single person. This rule is encouraged to eliminate corrupt wealthy individuals from rigging the elections by buying their way to the top.

 

This year, the movement has collected approximately $4 million in the first three months. It targets to raise over $35 million at the end of the year as the 2018 midterm Congress elections approaches. According to the USA TODAY reports, if the targeted amount is accomplished, it will mark a historic surge from the PAC’s contribution to the 2016 election at $25 million. Out of the 100,000 people who contributed in the first quarter of the year, more than quarter of them gave for the first time. This shows the increasing effectiveness of the group’s activities in educating people about the significance of reformed financial campaign system. Tiffany Muller, the group’s president and chief director, indicated that their goal is to elect candidates who support their campaign to reform the political financial system. She added that the Democrats were furious and disappointed following President Trumps win, and they were ready to fight his unfair agendas and backdoor nominees.

 

The End Citizens UnitedSupport to the Democrats

 

In the recent months, The End Citizens United action committee has urged donors to contribute to the first-time Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff. Ossoff seeks to fill a Republican House seat in Atlanta that fell vacant. The Democrat surprised everyone after raising over $4 million despite being a newbie in the game.

 

End Citizens United recently announced their endorsement for Rob Quist who is running for Congress in the oncoming special elections. According to Tiffany Muller, Quist is a true leader who refuses to cater to the selfish interests of the dark money groups trying to kill the democracy of provided in the constitution. He runs against a millionaire opponent lobbying to work against Montana’s great government. Muller added that Quist is a true fight and a champion to their action to reform campaign financial system and End Citizens United is proud to stand by him.

 

Genesis and Mission of the End Citizens United

 

End Citizens United was founded in 2015 to eliminate the disastrous effects of the Citizens United. It is solely funded by the small-dollar and grassroots members who contribute as much as $14 to the group’s activities. It is the third largest federal PAC in 2016 cycle with more than $3 million members. It stands against politicians who serve the interests of the cartels bankrolling their election campaigns rather the interests of the voters.
