RTRNA is created from the desperate need to do something about our reckless use of resources, reliance on single use consumable products and the Australian waste crisis.

RTRNA was founded by Laurence Hellmuth in 2018. Laurence was born and raised in Perth, with careers working in the fields of Education, Sustainability and Organisational Change.


Laurence lived in Germany for five years and its widespread embrace of sharing, reusing and recycling were a key inspiration for RTRNA. From nationwide deposit schemes, car sharing systems, residential compost collection for power generation, cycle networks and effective public transit - why couldn't these ideas work in Australia?

With this inspiration, RTRNA was created!
