Sustainability is not a trend. It’s a cry for help, especially to the big bosses.
The fashion industry is now being highly criticized for years and years of humanitarian and environmentally destructive practices when mass-producing. Not only are they a large contributor to the world’s waste and destroying vast bodies of water, but they also are guilty of exploiting human resources especially in third world countries.
When it comes to helping the environment, it’s pretty much impossible for a single person to make a noticeable difference on their own. That said, if all of us make little environmentally friendly choices every day, those choices start to add up. And one easy choice anyone can make is to buy recycled shoes.

STRATHAM, N.H., July 25, 2019 /3BL Media/ – In 2007, outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland set new standards for eco-conscious design with its original Earthkeepers® boot. Today, the company unveils the Brooklyn EK+, an Earthkeepers® Edition footwear collection that once again reflects the brand’s pinnacle expression of eco-innovation.
Timberland helped restore a school garden and created a 3500-square foot pop-up park at the festival with 4,000 attendees pledging to be a hero for nature and live a greener life
As a Timberland intern, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to represent the brand this past April through our partnership with Pharrell Williams’s Something in The Water Festival (SITW) in Virginia Beach, VA. I’ve volunteered at music events before, but I had no idea I was going to experience so much more.
SITW was the first event of its kind for Virginia Beach. Pharrell once said if he “made it” he’d come back to Virginia one day to do something big. And he did. He created a three-day celebration of community, art, sustainability, and of course, music.

It didn’t take long for Jim Pisani to understand Timberland’s vital role in nurturing the environment.
Just two weeks into his stint at the Stratham, N.H.-based company in 2016, the global brand president was knee deep in the company’s eco-friendly initiative — getting his hands dirty transforming a vacant Bronx, N.Y., lot into a lush garden.
Three years later, Pisani is working to make sure eco-consciousness is at the center of everything VF Corp.-owned Timberland does.
The President of Timberland in Europe, the Middle East and Africa believes that to re-seduce new generations, fashion companies must make a firm commitment to sustainability, given that young people are informed about it on the Internet.
On April 22, 138 Timberland employees, business partners, consumers and members of the media spent a memorable Earth Day planting and watering trees in China’s Horqin Desert. I was privileged to pull on my yellow boots alongside these heroes, to step outside, work together, and make it better in this extremely remote area of Inner Mongolia that has a significant environmental impact on the surrounding region.
