Malama Honua--to care for the Earth--is more than a mere statement at Uncle Clay’s House of Pure Aloha, but a guiding value we strive to live by. By caring for the Earth, the Earth can care for us.

We aim to source as many ingredients and products from local Hawaii farmers, growers, and suppliers.  Hawaii abundantly offers some of the best produce in the world, from Hawaiian chocolate grown in the North Shore to lush Kale and Spinach grown in Hawaii Kai.  By buying and eating local, we can be part of a more sustainable, secure, and healthy Hawaii food system for the next generation.

HOPA also aims to reduce and minimize the impact of our waste.  One way we achieve this goal is by serving our shave ice with biodegradable bowls, spoons, and napkins.  It’s environmentally-responsible, and every bowl truly makes a difference!
