Scott Cooney is the Founder and CEO of Pono Home Essentials, an organic zero waste company born on Oahu that has recently expanded to Las Vegas, and the energy efficiency company Pono Home in Hawaii.

His mission is to reduce waste and teach the world (not just Hawaii) on how to live in a healthier and greener home. Pono Home Essentials has a unique zero waste mission for customers to return their empty product bottles to use and Pono Home Essentials will BUY them back (this also helps customers recycle more while reducing waste).

Scott discusses the current litter situation in Hawaii, what it's like being sustainable in the middle of the ocean, and how his company operates without waste.
