Meet the vision, mission, and maker behind CariCapri!
CariCapri was created to develop fashionable, comfortable, affordable athleisure wear, resort clothing, shoes & accessories that are (most importantly!) eco-friendly, ethical & sustainable. Our products are produced using recycled materials under ethical working conditions.
Every step of the CariCapri process - from manufacturing to shipping - is eco-friendly. In addition, a portion of our profits are donated annually to non-profit causes focused on improving the environment and the quality of life for children (something close to our hearts).
MEET THE MAKER
Romona is the brains and beauty behind CariCapri. She was born and raised in Georgetown, Guyana among a wide mix of ethnic and religious customs. At a very early age, Romona understood the importance of helping others, as it was a fundamental part of her childhood. She was actively involved with giving back and volunteering by working with her parents to support local orphanages.
After moving to the United States in 2001, Romona became a citizen and started her family. She continued her support of Guyanese children and expanded her work to include orphanages in Central and South America, Europe and Africa. Romona also worked with a variety of charitable and environmental groups, most recently becoming the Founder and President of a new non-profit organization working globally to help make children safer, smarter and stronger. As expected, Romona’s upbringing deeply informed how she and her husband would also raise their two daughters who are actively involved in their mother’s philanthropic work.
A NEW EXPERIENCE
CariCapri is a natural extension of what Romona has been doing her whole life: working to help our planet and the children who live here. Along the way, she has also worked as an accountant, model and actress. But the role Romona is most proud of is mother and philanthropist.
With CariCapri as her newest focus, she hopes to make ethically-made, affordable, and fashionable #WasteToWear apparel the new normal. Recycled plastic bottles have never looked this good!
PLASTIC BOTTLES HAVE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD.
We are committed not only to bringing you the most sustainably-made attire we can create, but also the best information about #WasteToWear fashion and the global impact it has on our planet.
