Belts have come full circle. Originally used as a fashion statement by the elite, they later served a practical purpose for workers. These days, it’s all about style once again. A belt is one of those essential accessories that helps to break up an outfit. A t-shirt and jeans combo goes from casual to smart casual in a flash with the addition of a good belt, and it’s an easy way to look a little more put together. But what about sustainable belts?
Traditionally, belts were made with animal leather. And while that is often still the case, the explosion of eco- and animal-friendly leather alternatives in the past decade means you can find ethical belts made of everything from cork to cotton to recycled rubber. All of the belts below are vegan-friendly, and are a fantastic option for those who want their fashion free from animal cruelty and environmental degradation!
