Any who possess a respect and connection to the ocean, earth and humanity, will endeavor to apply those merits to every aspect of life. A positive effect is generated when we make good, sound, connected choices. So the manner in which we operate, both as an organization and as individuals, matters– every little thing we do helps to sustain a healthy world.
Donna’s designs are Made with Dignity on the beautiful Island of Bali and in California. By design, Donna collaborates with independent artisans who set their own price and pace.
Our Balinese headquarters are run with love and skill by Donna’s Balinese soul sister, a woman of equal passion and mind set, who employs primarily women from within her community, who have apprenticed as craftswomen, sometimes over the course of many years and who take great pride and care in producing the Betty Belts line of quality fashion accessories.
“Humanity is a vital and highly significant segment of the global biome. As sentient beings, we have a moral as well as practical obligation to impact our biome in a manner which improves efficiency and contributes to the resilience of all species.” – David Pu’u
Donna believes in giving back by supporting a multitude of near and faraway causes both environmental and educational including a very long list of local schools, sponsorship of women’s surf athletes and events and through many more purpose driven programs. Additionally, some of the recipients of annual donations over the years via our 1% For The Planet membership (since 2007) include East Bali Poverty Project, Blue Mind Fund, Food Forward, Santa Barbara Beekeepers Association and Friends of the Ventura River . Betty Belts is also a Green America (since 2007) gold certified business.
