The Get Kids Movin! Event showcased a variety of wonderful vendors that support health and fitness for youth and families across the Washington Metropolitan Area. C4 Belts, a China based belt company, has introduced a new wave of fashion for people who want to make a fashion statement for a cause. This stylish brand produces colorful belts made of recycled goods that caught my eye, and it will catch yours too! Here’s what co-founder, Robbie Hart, had to say about his innovative and charitable clothing line:
Robbie: Hello my name is Robbie Hart with C4 Belts. C4 stands for choose your color, choose your cause. So you can mix and match the belt and the buckle with any color combination that you want and every time you buy a belt, a portion goes to a charity of your choice.
Me: So, how are these belts made?
Robbie: It’s a thermoplastic, so these are very strong, very comfortable plastic and it comes in over 20 different colors.
Me: So, how did you come up with this idea?
Robbie: It was the colorful watches that inspired this, so I thought to myself, everybody is wearing colorful watches! Why not wear colorful belts also?
After interviewing with Robbie at Get Kids Movin and learning more about C4 Belts, I was very inspired. I was especially impressed by the eco-friendly materials that are used in the production of the colorful belts. This makes the fashion line a hit in the community and in the environment, and what better way to make a fashion statement than that!
