Jelt joins over 2,100 Certified B Corporations from more than 130 industries in 50 countries that share a unifying goal: to redefine success in business. The company has recently undergone extensive evaluation to become a Certified B Corporation. What does this mean for the environment? Very, very good things!
Certified B Corporations are dedicated to using the power of their business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact on not only their shareholders, but also their workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment by meeting rigorous and independent standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Jelt has gone through the rigorous evaluation process to prove how dedicated they are to making a difference when it comes to the environment. Jelt incorporates several programs beneficial to social and environmental issues into their business model, all of which contribute significantly to their B Corps status. The belts, which are elastic with a no-show plastic buckle, are made from 100 percent recycled water bottles, which lowers the footprint of their environmental impact.
“Jelt was created to give back to our communities in a multitude of ways and we’ve worked very hard to make sure that each part of our company is making a positive impact,” says founder Jennifer Perry. “This certification validates that we’re doing just that, and in a manner that’s best for the world. We’re incredibly honored to be a Certified B Corporation, and inspired to keep growing our impact.”

Jelt was created to give back to the community, making sure that every aspect of the company is making a positive impact on the community one way or another. Becoming a Certified B Corporation solidifies their efforts to use business practices for the greater good. Some of their current partners in this effort include Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, THRIVE, and 1% For the Planet.
