Waste not!

Have you ever looked at your empty toothpaste tube and thought, “There’s no possible way to recycle or reuse this tube…there’s gotta be a better way.” 

When that happened to us, the idea for Pono Home Essentials was born as a zero waste model for household, cleaning, and personal care products: reusing bottles, caps, and even boxes and packaging material!
