Waiakea Water’s Rapid Growth Upsets Big Brand Competitors with Social Conscious Approach

It is a trendy thing to keep hydrated, and that is why you will find lots of young people carrying a water bottle with them almost everywhere; on the bus, in the office, at the gym, in the car. Water bottling is, however, a hard business to get into. Part of the reason is that the existing big brand players do not wholly support or encourage new competitors. While the opportunity exists, ingenious ways to realize the market are required.

Waiakea water is a revolutionary bottled water brand that is differentiating itself from the other players around three factors; sustainable and harvested from a regenerative source, identifiable health advantages, and bottles made from 100% recycled materials reducing the carbon footprint.

The recycled bottles are easier and economical to manufacture. Moreover, the water source regenerates at a faster rate than harvested.

The water is obtained from the Kea’au well on the Mauna Loa volcanoes in Hawaii, which Ryan has leased for the next 99 years. The water is shipped to the continental US to a packing site.

The water is rich in required natural minerals and vitamins being at the foot of an old volcano, which is crucial for your body. Alkaline bottled water has been proven to be healthier and is all the rave nowadays for optimum hydration, and Waiakea water does not fail to deliver.

According to PR News Wire, starting his company while still in his first year at University of South California at 22, Ryan Emmons, the founder of Waiakea Water has built a successful premium bottled water brand that has seen over 4000% growth in less than three years.

Local suppliers have signed on, and large-scale stores are getting in line because consumers are finally making the connection and going for the different product.

With such rapid success also comes the responsibility to give back to the needy. Global News Wire said that a proportion of Waiakea water’s sales is donated to help rural folks in Africa get access to clean water through the social responsibility charity PumpAid. Ryan recognizes the need to create brand loyalty through lifestyle branding and conscious consumer engagement.

Expansion of the company’s facilities is planned as an outcome of the exponential growth to enable service to international markets.

Building bigger manufacturing infrastructure, new bottling sites, and market discovery to take the product beyond the borders are all in the pipeline.

Waiakea water is competitively priced and is reported to have a smoother softer taste. Additionally, it is flying off the shelves faster than the bottles are coming out of the production plant

Lime Crime Lipstick Features New Plum Color “Scandal”

Lime Crime’s new plum colored lipstick “Scandal” is the in color of the season for women who like to be edgy and dramatic. It’s the latest edition to a line of lipsticks called Velvetines.

Doe Deere, Lime Crime CEO, adds that this new bold color is for the girl who likes “punk rock” style and has an “I don’t care” attitude to go along with a need for self-expression. It’s just one of the many colors and kinds of lipstick and lip balm made and sold by Lime Crime.

Deere suggests wearing “Scandal” with black eyeliner for a bold look. She explains that it should be applied about 15 minutes after putting on lip balm. Be sure to pat away any excess oil with tissues, and put the lipstick on with a lip brush for more refined edges.

The Velvetine line of lipsticks dry with a waterproof finish and are taken off with waterproof makeup remover or a type of oil designed for that purpose. Other purple colors in the Velvetine line include Fetish, Raven, and Jinx. Lime Crime also makes other types of makeup products women can use along with its lipsticks, such as eye liners, eye shadow, glitter glosses, nail polish and loose pigments.  All of which are available on Love-Makeup.co.uk.

Lime Crime is an innovative makeup company started by Deere in 2008 that is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Deere says she started Lime Crime to make makeup for women who wanted a sense of freedom and to express themselves better. She has since worked on making the line into a high performing company that banks on being certified vegan and cruelty-free, which means it is not tested on animals. Besides the purples, her lipsticks come in coppers, greens, pinks, blues, reds, black and grays.

You can learn more about Lime Crime on their Facebook page, where they have more than a million followers or browse their website at www.limecrime.com, as well as Deere’s personal blog at ILoveLimeCrime.com.

Water Quality Issues On The Road To Being Resolved By Squaw Valley Officials

A rare rain event recently affected the Placer County home of the historic Squaw Valley Ski Resort and caused some issues with a small number of groundwater wells being affected by quickly spotted levels of E.Coli and Coliform. Squaw Valley officials, including Public Relations Director Liesl Kenney, have moved quickly to reassure visitors that the problems affecting the water quality for locations in the Upper Mountain area are being handled by qualified experts and will not affect the enjoyment of any skier.

 

An official from Placer County Environmental Health Department explained the water quality issues were reported to local government agencies as soon as Squaw Valley’s own testing procedures revealed the presence of E.Coli and Coliform. Placer County’s Wesley Nicks has already moved to reassure the public that steps have already begun to be taken to return the contaminated water wells to normal quality levels; in fact, three of the four affected wells already show no signs of E.Coli and lowered levels of Coliform as the measures taken to rectify the issue seem to be having a positive effect in a short space of time.

 

Squaw Valley officials had recently upgraded the water wells in the Summer of 2016 in a bid to make sure visitors were as safe as possible when they used this drinking water; officials at Squaw Valley identified the contamination through regular testing procedures that have shown their importance as no visitor was offered the contaminated water and no health issues have been traced back to the contamination.

 

As always, the safety and security of visitors to Squaw Valley remains of great importance to the resort officials who have revealed drinking water supplies will remain off limits until the all clear has been given by local officials and independent experts. Slopes remain open for visitors who are being offered complimentary bottled water if they visit the Upper Mountain area where restaurants will only reopen when the water quality issue has been resolved.

How Doe Deere Turned Her Unique Aesthetic Into A Highly Successful Brand

In 2008, a Russian-born girl with a bright and bold aesthetic decided to launch a cosmetics brand. Doe Deere had been playing around with colorful makeup and whimsical fashion since she was a little girl, and she was disappointed to find that popular makeup brands weren’t offering the bright and colorful products she was looking for.

 

Today, Lime Crime boasts millions of social media followers and its playful products fly off the shelves. Beauty bloggers can’t wait to get their hands on the newest Lime Crime products to share with their devoted readers. Retail giant Urban Outfitters has even taken an interest in Lime Crime’s coveted cosmetics, adding the brand’s famous lipsticks to its e-commerce website.

 

Deere can breathe a sigh of relief now that her entrepreneurial dream has paid off. By staying true to her own unique aesthetic, she has earned the loyalty of millions of fans who love her unique point of view and look up to her as a beauty guru. However, launching and maintaining such a successful company wasn’t always a piece of cake.

 

Deere is refreshingly candid about her past struggles and insecurities when it comes to Lime Crime. Notably, a security breach a few years back left an enormous number of Lime Crime customers vulnerable as their financial information was stolen. It took Deere considerable time to increase the security of her company’s website and earn back the trust of her followers.

 

Today, Deere knows her business like the back of her hand. Through trial and error, she has developed a keen understanding of how to maintain Lime Crime’s success through different business strategies. As the CEO, she has learned the importance of being the kind of boss who is fair and personable. By letting her employees know that they are valued, they are more productive and personally invested in the success of the brand.

 

Deere has also learned the importance of offering top notch customer service. She has realized that in order to keep customers coming back, good communication needs to be maintained and customers need to feel valued.

 

Perhaps the greatest asset to the company that has brought Deere so much success is her unique aesthetic vision. Instead of setting out to capitalize on current beauty trends, Deere introduced something fully unique to the cosmetics industry. She launched makeup products that feature playful imagery and unique color choices. By filling in this gap in the market, her brand is easily recognizable. Plus, the products are vegan and cruelty-free, appealing to animal lovers.

 

When asked if Deere has any advice for other entrepreneurs out there, she insisted that business-minded people trust their intuition. She credits her own success with her reliance on her gut feelings. Clearly, her gut feelings have been right so far.

Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit Helping the Handicapped

I am a disabled veteran. I wanted to take the time and write a letter of thanks to Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit. Your program enabled me to spend time with my nephew who is doing a small stint in a state prison. I am aware that penalties must be paid when the law is broken. I am a strong defender of that policy. Because of Securus Technologies Video Visits, I am able to encourage my nephew to get on the right track and stay there. So far, he has been the model inmate. I want to always be around him physically to ensure he never gets caught up with the wrong crowd again. But due to me being in a wheelchair, I am extremely limited in everyday life. And the travel for a prison visit would just be too much for me.I am grateful that we have this very strong way of keeping in contact.

 

I had to make an effort to talk to the people in charge at the prison. I told them my plight and they were understanding. I asked them if there were any programs that catered to someone who had a disability such as myself.They told me right away of the Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit. I met the requirements and was approved. Now all I had to do was wait for my specified time of the visit. When my nephew came on, he was so happy. Although we had talked on the phone many times, this Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit was so much better. It was personal to me. I could see him. He could see me. I saw how he matured in the face. He got a little buff too. Our visit was great. We talked about his re-entry into the community. We talked and made plans for his future. I am so proud of him. And through Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit he could actually see my face and expressions. I made sure he knew how happy I am with him.

 

I know it may not be easy, but we are getting a head start on his future.I wanted to say Securus Technologies has been a valuable tool that was used in communicating a positive outlook to my nephew. We are stronger as a unit. And that is because I am able to influence him thanks to Securus Technologies Christmas Video Visit.
