A BETTER BELT FOR A BETTER PLANET.
Jelt is dedicated to incorporating several programs beneficial to social and environmental issues into our business model, all of which contribute significantly to our B Corp status:
Materials: Jelt belts are made with sustainable elastic from 100% recycled plastic bottles and packaged on recycled cardboard, which lowers our carbon footprint and environmental impact.
Manufacturing: In 2016, Jelt moved manufacturing from China to the U.S. Our belts are now manufactured in Montana, USA by talented women living in rural areas around the state.
Community: Jelt donates a portion of each sale to non-profit organizations dedicated to veterans, youth, and the environment. This includes: Warriors and Quiet Waters, Thrive and 1% for the Planet approved organizations (Oceana, Greater Yellowstone Collation and Gallatin Valley Land Trust)
Employees: We provide thrivable wages and flexible schedules to our employees.
