Hey there! My name is Raylyn Nicole and I’m the owner of The Wandering Turtle Shop. I am a small town journalist who is trying to do the right thing for myself and the planet.

A couple years ago, I was actively avoiding my homework for grad school, and started watching documentaries. After seeing the damage factory farming, plastic pollution, and fast fashion are causing to the planet, I knew I had to make some changes. I’m not perfect, but I believe small consistent changes add up to make a huge difference. 

The idea for the store started when I needed to distinguish my oral care products from my roommate’s stuff. I couldn’t find the products I needed in one place, so I decided to gather them myself.

My goal with the store is to provide fun and funky planet-friendly products. Zero waste, but make it pretty.
