We believe that giving back to the environment is more than just a popular sentiment: it is a firm dedication. As a Green Business Bureau certified seller, ShanPaulo donates 1% for each non-profit of its revenue to support One Tree Planted, Global Green and Women Against Abuse Non-profit Organization achieving a total of 3% donation of our revenue.
As a woman-owned business, ShanPaulo continues to expand on its commitment to helping women and is currently working on non-profit partnerships that help fight violence and exploitation of women.
I am Shannon DeOliveira, Co-founder of ShanPaulo LLC and this is my emotional genesis of mine dynamic, woman-centered company:
"As a domestic violence survivor, part of our overarching mission has always involved the empowerment and betterment of women. Years ago, before I had established my career, I was in a very toxic relationship. I felt dependent on a man, though I was working two jobs and in school. Despite all the red flags and warning signs, I stayed, and eventually that relationship turned to violent physical abuse. I ended up in the emergency room after he attacked both my car and my face, busting my lip and breaking my nose. I was completely resolved after that and vowed I would never let another man treat me that way again. And as strange as it may sound, that incident made me feel more confident, deserving, and independent. This is one of the many reasons why our brand works to help women feel their best – to exude the confidence that all women have deep inside and deserve. I strongly believe that every woman should feel beautiful, confident, empowered, and independent, because they can accomplish anything they want in their lives. That's one of the most important messages our brand seeks to communicate: The world is in your hands – believe it!"
I am Paulo DeOliveira co-founder of ShanPaulo LLC and this is our company's overall environmental inspiration and dedication to start ShanPaulo LLC:
"I was born and raised in Brazil, and there are so many wonderful villages and small towns there that make beautiful, handcrafted products – often to support lower income families. Many of these products use reclaimed and repurposed materials out of necessity, but the end results are stunning. It ultimately inspired us to do the same: create amazing products that are sustainable, while also educating others on the importance of this work. Responsible waste management, using segregated and efficiently handled materials, not only helps the environment, it helps us all – by pushing back environmental devastation and allowing the earth time to rebuild and heal itself. The sourcing of materials used in the construction of our handbags also lifts up lower income families."
We strive to use as many sustainable practices as possible.
We at SHANPAULO LLC are conscious of our social responsibilities with regards to helping the environment through our working practices. Our objective is not only to sustain our environment for our descendants but also to rehabilitate the damage previously done. We believe that our company responsibility goes beyond our proprietary borders and therefore every effort will be made to conserve resources throughout our operations.
SHANPAULO LLC will try to not only meet existing environmental laws and regulation but will endeavor to go beyond the status quo and see techniques and approaches that position us ahead of our competition.
Growth of our company depends on our abilities to minimize or eliminate our impacts on our surroundings. Our company’s future and the future of our environment are interconnected.
The reclaimed wood that we use offers a range of sustainability advantages over new wood. Reclaimed wood reduces the devastating impact of deforestation, keeps valuable resources from being landfilled and thoughtfully repurposes wood that has been deemed unworthy. Other advantages include much lower emissions than associated with the logging, transport, and processing of new wood.
The ShanPaulo mission is to support women in being confident to be themselves. We believe in helping you showoff the best qualities of who you are because we believe you are fearless, amazing, and generous. We want to pass to you the feeling of positiveness, living, giving, and confidence with purpose. In the process, we hope to inspire healthier communities by giving back to our environment in a big way!
