MEET THE TEAM
Anya advises on product development and is really the founder of PlanetCare - and in many ways represents the many young people who are increasingly aware of the damage plastic waste is doing to our environment. Anya is a qualified diver and plans to work as a volunteer with sea turtles in Sri Lanka this year.
Our story really starts when one morning I saw Anya packing her school lunch using these strange wraps. When I asked about them she told me they were beeswax wraps and that she was using them as an alternative to plastic. She then went on to tell me all about the damage plastic was doing to the planet and particularly our oceans. She was obviously passionate about this, and as a keen diver it struck a chord.
I have been lucky enough to dive some of the best dive sites around the world, but have increasingly seen with my own eyes how plastic waste is affecting our seas and ocean life. This was the day we, as a family, decided to do our little bit for the environment, and the idea for PlanetCare Products started!

Sasima is a passionate sailor and represents New Zealand in the Women’s Keeler division. She loves the sea and deeply cares about our environment. She is a keen diver and has seen first-hand just how devastating plastic waste can be on the marine environment. Sas is our photographer and also advises on product development. Sas has dedicated her life to working with charities and is currently the fundraising Director of an organisation here in Tauranga – so her marketing skills also come in real handy!
Me, well I’m lucky enough to work with my family on something I truly believe in.
I have always had a close affinity with the sea and spend much of my time in and around it – I even paint it in my spare time! I guess it’s also one of the main reasons we came to New Zealand almost 8 years ago – the coastline here is truly awesome!
Our mission is to provide eco-friendly products and choices to help and encourage people to stay plastic free and to protect our environment.
