Matthew Hope

Position: Co-Founder & President

School: Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Interests: Travel, Serial Entrepreneurship, Ping Pong, Family

Revelation: I just knew a typical office job was not for me. I left university to get involved in something meaningful...I just wasn't sure what. On a family vacation in Hawaii, I saw Kamilo Beach (called Trash Beach by locals). I couldn’t believe what was washing up on the shore—mostly plastic garbage. With like-minded friends, I started WeArePlanetHope. Our purpose is to provide hopeful products that will help save our planet. Our first product—HopePodz—is helping to reduce single-use plastics in the home. We continue to develop ideas for a more hopeful planet. I hope you’ll join us.

Priya Dufton

Position: Co-Founder & Director of Operations

School: Loyola Marymount University ’22, Los Angeles, California, USA

Interests: Acting, travel, music, spending time with friends and family

Revelation: Like a bunch of my friends, I’m a bit stressed out. Beyond day-to-day worries, there are world issues, like climate change and pollution. We kind of joke about it, but a lot of my friends wonder about bringing kids into the world the way it is right now. Wanting to be part of meaningful change, I co-founded WeArePlanetHope. Our mission is to offer eco-friendly and innovative products that add some hope back into our planet.

Lauren Hope

Position: Social Media Coordinator

School: Grade 11, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Interests: Dancing, music, school, spending time with friends and family

Revelation: In 5th grade, I saw a presentation at my school about pollution and what we’re doing to our planet. It kinda scared me and made me think about the future. Fast-forward to today, every day we hear how dire the situation is and how we really need to act now to make a change before it's too late. That’s why I joined WeArePlanetHope. Together, each one of us has the power to make a difference for a healthy, more hopeful future.

Robyn Lustman

Position: Euro Sales Director

School: Year 11, London ENGLAND

Interests: Music, lacrosse, fashion

Revelation: Lately, my friends and I often skip school to participate in the School Strike for Climate, started by Greta Thunberg. The first time I went, it was a real eye-opening experience. I was already aware of many of the issues surrounding global warming and climate change, but the experience of being a part of such a large movement has inspired me to do more to ensure a better future for our planet. So I decided to become part of WeArePlanetHope. Hopefully, I can inspire others the same way Greta inspired me.
