About Us

Sustainable island living

Onekea Bros. General Store helps eco-conscious consumers to reduce their environmental impact by providing high quality, reusable kitchen products and zero-waste cleaning and personal care products that aren't harmful to people or planet. We hope that our products will help our customers to live aloha 'āina every day. 
Founded by lifelong Kaimuki resident Kawehi Onekea, Onekea Bros. General Store is named for her sons who help operate the business. Sustainable living is at the heart of the general store -- from sourcing products that  are made locally to replacing plastics and disposables with natural and reusable goods, and giving new life and purpose to resources that would otherwise become part of the waste stream.

Are you a vendor with similar values? We'd love to hear from you.

Onekea Bros. General Store is looking for like-minded vendors and collaborators who manufacture items in Hawaii. In particular, we are looking for items that are

  • Locally crafted. While we understand that many raw materials are simply not manufactured in Hawaii, we do ask that everything we sell has some component from Hawaii. That component can be design, manufacture, or locally-grown ingredients.
  • Sustainably produced. We care about the impact our choices make on others and the environment, so we are looking for sustainably harvested components, reclaimed materials, and/or products made without harmful chemicals or plastic.
  • Authentically local. We want to showcase our incredibly talented and creative Kama'āina who produce items that celebrate the beauty of Hawaii.

If that sounds like you, please fill out a vendor application.
