Here at Pono Home, if you’ve had one of our technicians come out to help you green your home or even just to do a free audit, we feel like you’re part of our family – our PonOhana as we like to call it! You know our values and our commitment to people and the planet. That’s why we want YOU to be the first ones to know about some exciting new products we are launching.

We’re calling it Pono Home Essentials. We are bringing you Pono, organic, chemical-free, zero-waste home and personal care products – you know, the essentials! We’re launching with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, and organic laundry products and will soon be expanding to include even more products.

What’s so different about Pono Home Essentials products? Well, a couple of important things:

  • Chemical free, Pono-approved formulas. Home and personal care products can be absorbed through our skin, dispersed into the air we breathe, and washed down our drains into our streams, oceans, and soils. Why would we put harmful chemicals on our skin or in our air, water, and soil? Yet this is what so often happens when our products have questionable or known harmful ingredients. You don’t have to worry about that here! Our products are gentle on your hair and skin, keep your clothes and hair colorful and soft, and smell great.
  • Consumer waste-free model. Does your eco-guilt flare up every time you throw away a container that held shampoo, toothpaste, or sunscreen? We’re here to help you with that. Now instead of throwing away all that stuff, we’ve created a model where you can send back your empties and get them refilled! You can use the same container over and over for you personal care products. That’s reason to be excited!
  • Convenience. What’s worse than running out of the essentials and having to run to the store for that one thing you need? With Pono Home Essentials, you can order 2 of the same products online, use up the first one, then send the empty container back to us while you use the second. You can use the same box with our complimentary shipping label. We’ll send it back full (in the same box) so you never have to be out of shampoo again.
  • Affordability. Let’s face it: One of the biggest barriers to buying more eco-friendly products is price. At Pono Home we’re about taking barriers away, so our pricing is very competitive! We want your home to get the best care at the best price, and that’s one of our main goals with Pono Home Essentials.

So how does it work? Glad you asked!

You can order online at, and you’ll receive your products in a box with a return shipping label. When you run out, make sure your bottles are clean and dry. Once we get your empties and your refill form, we’ll fill them back up and send them to you, and from this time on you’ll save $2 per product for reusing the bottles. Simple enough!

We’d love to have you on board as one of our early adopters, and we’d also love to hear your feedback. Again, to order online, you can visit, then let us know what you think!
