Hi, my name is Lauren and I founded Raine in 2019.
In January 2019, I woke up one morning with the dream of starting a reusable products company to help reduce single-use plastic and improve the health of our planet and ourselves.
After months of learning how to start and run a small business with no prior experience and a small starting budget from my savings, I launched Raine in December 2019 with Reusable Glass Straw Sets! But Raine will not stop there, I plan on expanding into other products that are beautiful, affordable, and of course... Eco-Friendly. A long-term goal for Raine is to make it a one-stop shop for affordable sustainable swaps and I am doing that by reinvesting all of the money Raine makes directly back into the business.
As Raine grows, it will offer simple, attractive, and great quality items for everybody to use in their everyday lives with the aim to reduce plastics that expose us and our environment to harmful toxins. Raine will grow beyond reusable straws into other useful and sustainable products and is focused on becoming 100% American made. I also hope to educate and inspire those who are following along and eventually give back to the community through Raine.
I am extremely passionate about the health of our planet as well as those who reside on it. Another one of my dreams is to start, or partner with, a non-profit organization that provides low-income communities with gardens and education. While it is currently a dream, Raine started as a dream too and I want you to know that by supporting Raine, you’re helping it grow and eventually give back! Currently, Raine gives back to various non-profits and is 100% Carbon Neutral by offsetting the carbon produced in manufacturing, shipping, and office energy use through US-based carbon offsetting programs.
I’m so thankful to everybody who has supported Raine as it went from a dream to reality. I currently do all the behind the scenes work here but as Raine grows, I hope to bring people along this journey!
