Matthew Hope

Position: Co-Founder & President

Age: 22

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.

Revelation: Growing up, my family always encouraged me to think big, to empathize with others and improve the world where I could. Because of this, I strive to create a better environment not only for me, but for everyone. Whether it be locally or globally, I believe small actions create huge change. Working for We Are Planet Hope has been an amazing experience, as they have given me the chance to really make a difference.

Interests: Dancing, performing, music, sunsets

Revelation: Over the past couple of years, the climate crisis has become a huge topic of discussion at my school and on social media. The issue feels overwhelming: what could I possibly do to help such a big problem? Sometimes I felt like no single action would leave enough of an impact. Being apart of We Are Planet Hope has surrounded me with great like-minded people striving for a better future. The best part is how it has given me a purpose in the climate movement which means a lot to me.

Revelation: Since I was young, I’ve been very passionate about social justice. Whether it be climate change, racism, animal cruelty or any other injustice, I strive to do my part. My ideal world consists of equity for all and a planet that is treated with the respect it deserves. Wanting to be part of meaningful change, I co-founded We Are Planet Hope. Our mission is to offer eco-friendly and innovative products that add some hope back to our planet.

Position: Content Creator & Graphic Designer 

Age: 20

Interests: Music, movies, video editing, plants

Revelation: I joined an eco-club back in elementary school. I remember planting trees, picking up garbage, and learning about different environmental issues. It opened my eyes to the climate emergency my generation is facing. When I heard about We Are Planet Hope, I jumped on the opportunity to join a youth-led organization that strives to tackle the same issues that are important to me.

Robyn Lustman

Position: Euro Sales Director

Age: 17

Interests: Music, lacrosse, fashion

Revelation: My friends and I started skipping 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, all the way from England to do my part! Hopefully, I can inspire others the same way Greta inspired me.
