3. ReBOTL™ Recycled Technology
Since 2009, the equivalent of 345 million plastic bottles have found new life in our products. The non-biodegradable plastic waste is collected, shredded, turned into yarns, and woven into fabric. We use this signature eco-conscious fabric to make shoes, boots, jackets, clothes bags and more.
4. Recycled Leather
When it comes to sustainable leather, advanced knowledge of the leather industry is key. 96% of the leather we use is from tanneries rated Gold or Silver by the Leather Working Group according to the highest leatherworking standards.
5. Regenerative Leather
We help spark nature’s power to regrow by sourcing from regenerative agriculture farms. Regenerative farming essentially mimics nature. Animals graze in their natural patterns, and we plant diverse crops that are engineered to replicate nature’s diversity. The land can then create healthy, hydrated soil by being allowed to rest for a moment.
6. Organic Cotton
Our products include 77% sustainably sourced cotton. Unlike many of our competitors, we know exactly where our cotton comes from and who grew it. We use strong and durable cotton that is grown in partnership with local communities in Haiti. Our Community Cotton™ initiative creates a positive impact on the communities, their future, and the environment through a cooperative and responsible business model.
Now that you know how to shop sustainable clothing and shoes, keep in mind that caring for your new products is also key. For instance, washing your clothes with cold water will extend the life cycle of your Timberland clothing. Plus, make sure you clean your ReBOTL™-lined Chelsea Boots with our signature Boot Sauce™ cleaner on a regular basis.
Since our founding in 1952, we have long been committed to preserving the wider world we live in. CO2 emissions in the UK have fallen 29% in the past decade, and by shopping sustainably, we can help that number fall even further in the future. From enjoying a trip abroad or soaking up some rest with a staycation in your Timberland boots, let’s make sustainability fashionable.
Whether you’re looking for a new pair of flip flops or desert boots or are simply seeking a bit of inspiration, we hope you take this advice to heart. Join us on the path to a purposeful profit in serious style today.
