- Zero Waste Organic Personal Care Products
Pono Home offers customized, in-home services to save you money and make your home healthier. Our customers have seen their utility bills drop so much that in some instances, our service pays for itself within a few months. Our service is billed in time and materials so it is easy to understand and has no hidden costs. Since it is 100% customizable and completely up to you, you pay only for those things you want to upgrade, and for nothing else.
We’re so confident in the results we deliver for you that we back up everything–if you do not save enough on your electric and water bills within 2 years, we’ll refund the labor cost. And if you find a better retail price on a product we install in your home, we’ll match it. See our very simple terms here for all guarantee info.
Pono Home can perform a basic green audit of your home, including testing for water leaks, air drafts/insulation leaks, vampire power loads and lighting system efficiencies, and then assessing your major appliances for potential improvements, maintenance or upgrades.
Once we’ve determined the best solutions for your home and you’ve decided on what you’d like to do, Pono Home will send you a proposal that includes a completely customized sustainability service, and calculations to show you how fast you’ll earn your money back through utility bill savings, how much carbon pollution you’ll be keeping out of the air, and what that’s equivalent to in terms of planting trees or taking cars off the road. (Our calculations are from methodologies developed by the EPA and Hawaii Energy’s Technical Reference Manual.)
When we come to your home, we bring an assortment of efficiency hardware items with us, including LED lighting, faucet aerators, advanced power strips, timers, power strips, showerheads, and the like. We present options, and if you want any of these items installed, we charge you the equivalent of the retail price to install the item, and that includes purchase, delivery, and professional installation.
The service includes maintenance services like cleaning refrigerator condenser coils, setting energy saving settings in dishwashers, fixing toilet leaks, cleaning dryer lint vents, and the like. If you have other appliances (HVAC, water heater, etc.) on site, we offer a la carte services to test, maintain, and optimize those appliances. Thus, our service is very practical for renters of studio apartments, but can easily scale up as far as needed, including multi-family housing.
If you’re anything like us, you’re sick of all the plastic in the world. You’re also sick of toxic, potentially life-threatening stuff being in your personal care products. We saw this as a big challenge…and a great opportunity to launch an organic, zero waste personal care product line. Imagine, all the essentials: body wash, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, sunscreen…just done more…pono!
We call it Pono Home Essentials. Head on over to the Pono Home Essentials page to learn more and get on your journey to zero waste living.

Pono Home understands if you need to cancel or reschedule your service. If you do so more than 48 hours ahead of your service, there is no charge. However, if you cancel after that, we charge a rescheduling fee of $49. Please understand, there is a lot of preparation work that goes into each service, and we are on a tight time budget. We apologize for the inconvenience.
