We can’t believe how excited we were to discover that the funky belts from C4 Belts have hit Australian shores. The ultimate in customisable belts which, we think, will turn your pants and skirts into something to talk about! The concept – customise your belt and your social impact – chose the colour of your new funky belt and buckle and chose the cause your want to support. There you have it – the four “C’s”!
C4 belts are made from TFE plastic (which C4 describes as feeling almost like rubber but stretchy). They are environmentally friendly, easily trimmed, durable, waterproof and quite simply – much funkier than a leather belt. There is a huge range of colours for both your belt ($35) and buckle ($5). Every belt you buy comes with a buckle in the same colour. However the belts are easily interchangeable and for an extra $5 you can pick up an extra buckle – now your belt can perfectly compliment your outfit! We think the belts would look sweet with a Jedidah tee or Volcom jeans!
What about the give back I hear you say? C4 Belts has chosen 4 causes to support and donates 10% of each purchase to the cause you select. You can’t even proceed to order your belt without first selecting a cause to support.
Their global charity is Boys and Girls Club of Amercia, but their current Australian charities are The National Breast Cancer Foundation Australia, The Reach Foundation, and Ygap (Y Generation Against Poverty).
The Reach Foundation runs national school and community based programs for young people to support and support their mental heath and wellbeing. Whereas Ygap’s mission is to assist in the launching of innovative social enterprises and creative fundraising to empower disadvantages communities become self sustainable. Some of its projects include contributing to the Cathy Freeman Foundation through funds raised from a Ygap Kinfolk Cafe. This money will go towards the Literacy and Non-Truancy Program on Palm Island.
Both Ygap and The Reach Foundation are involved in some truly exciting projects so buckle up with your new C4 belt and make an impact.
