We are calling on those who aren’t afraid to pull on their boots, get their hands dirty, and dig in to green our world. Each and every day at Timberland, we strive to strengthen our communities worldwide through environmentally focused events that push toward a greener future. This spring alone, over 1,000 of our employees will shut down their computers and serve the Earth by planting trees, restoring our land, and creating public green spaces in 27 communities around the globe. Why? Because nature needs heroes. Take a look:
What if more trees were planted than cut down? We’re doing our best to make that a reality. Whether it’s reforesting a desert or planting trees in a city, we’re helping to improve air quality and provide shade (and even fruit!) for millions. To date, we’ve planted over 10 million trees worldwide, and we’re just getting started.
By creating and restoring community gardens worldwide, we’re freshening up the air and getting those bees and insects back to work pollinating our communities.
Experience the outdoors as it should be, free of trash and run-down trails. We’re pulling on our boots to clear debris and restore hiking trails and parks around the globe.
Green spaces help improve wellbeing and strengthen communities. So why don’t our cities have more of them? We’re nurturing cities around the world with pockets of greenery through the creation and restoration of urban parks.
Limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables is leading to increased food insecurity felt worldwide. We’re digging into this issue by creating urban farms for communities to grow fresh local produce.
That’s a sampling of what we’ve been up to, now we’re calling on you. Not just on Earth Day, but every day, join one of our projects, or simply take your own small actions that could make a big difference. It all starts with pulling on your boots and stepping outside to make it better!
