Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to learn about our story :)
Our names are Raina and Rhema Wong and we are identical twin sisters born and raised on the Island of O’ahu! Our sustainability and environmentalist journey began with several documentaries focusing on environmental issues and have now grown to affect every part of our lives. After learning about human impact and the state of our environment, we felt like there was more that we could do to be a part of the solution.
Our environmental activism started with our friends and family. As soon as we learned about sustainable alternatives, we slowly incorporated them into our lives. Our Dad bought us our first Bamboo Utensil Kits for our birthday one year, and our Uncle gave us our first Reef Safe Sunscreen for Christmas - these were stepping stone alternatives that led us to make more changes! It was interesting to see how our friends and family were now thinking differently about things such as the gifts they got for us. We started bringing vegan dishes and reusable utensils to class parties, sharing conversations about reducing waste and plastic-usage, getting involved in local climate strikes and connecting with other people in the movement. We became inspired to share about our sustainable journey and insights with a larger audience.
This is where R Planet was created.
It is a way for us to share our values of living simply and sustainably with products that are healthier for our bodies and ouR Planet.
We carefully curate and create the products we carry with the values of ethical sourcing, responsible disposal, natural ingredients, plastic-free packaging, and supporting small/local businesses in mind.
Thank you for supporting our small business and choosing R Planet.
Together, we are making a difference.
