Greenola Style

Change your look, Change a life. Who doesn’t want to look their best, but feel even better by knowing their handcrafted accessories are directly impacting positive change in the world?

Meet GREENOLA STYLE. Every single piece of jewelry, scarf, headband or hat (I could go on) – they’re all ethically handmade by artisans scattered throughout Kenya and Bolivia. GREENOLA implements an empowerment model for these women artisans, giving them access to healthcare, design education, and training them in business while building up their local communities.

These artisan entrepreneurs are all compensated as guided by the Fair Trade Federation. Success for this company is measured by their triple bottom line: people, planet and profit.

A percentage of all GREENOLA STYLE’s profits go directly to Solidarity Bridge – supporting the organization in their mission of bringing health services and education to South American communities such as Bolivia and Paraguay. Solidarity Bridge trains and supplies their medical communities, enabling them to provide high-complexity surgeries and other healthcare services for those living in poverty.

Based in Chicago by Founder/Creative Director Jen Moran, GREENOLA STYLE sprouted from Jen’s lack of fitting into the corporate bubble, and her love and history of traveling the world.

The personal relationships she made in her travels inspired her enough to start her own her own business with the main goals of employing those creative souls with fair wages for their artistry, helping to build their local communities, boosting the style industry, and in turn empowering women far away from the Windy City.

This article is part of the Socially Conscious Shopping series by Meghan Van Bussum.

Meghan Van Bussum, She Is Fierce! ContributorMeghan Van Bussum is a news producer & reporter turned marketing maven. Throughout her career, she’s strived to figure out the story behind everything and make sure the story is told in the most pure form possible. Now, raising a two-year-old son, Meghan is trying to raise him in a world where he learns from an early start that not everyone lives the same life as him, and that he should always try to live in a way that gives back to the “little guys”, the “givers”, and ultimately makes our world a better place! Ergo, the “Socially Conscious Shopping” blog series.

Meghan hails from the North (oh hey Lebanon, PA!), but has made her home in sunny Vilano Beach, St. Augustine, FL with her son Noah, husband Matt, and two American Bulldog rescues, Samuel Adams & Kona. Football season is a family favorite; Notre Dame, Florida State & the New England Patriots, take over their home every Saturday & Sunday!
