WOOD BELT IMPACT


LOGO SYMBOLS NO/ON

The red NO symbol in the logo represents the unacceptability of the use of belts for violence as also unacceptability of any violence.
The green ON symbol in the logo indicates that the belt can be used also by people with allergies, it can always stay on and there is no need to be removed.
Namely belts do not contain metals or metal alloys, and therefore by wearing them you avoid exposure to common allergens.
Since belts have no metal parts you can go through security screenings at airports and other locations quickly and comfortably, without removing your belt.
That also reduces risk with COVID 19 and other contagious diseases due to reduced removing of the belt.
