NEWS: Timberland Treehuggers?
Astounded to learn in my Metro newspaper this morning that Timberland are offering to plant a tree (in association with the Marston Vale Trust) for every pair of Timberland boots bought from their new Regent Street store.
I suppose it makes sense for them as a company to help preserve the environment because at the very least (apart from the obvious global survival reasons) without woodland we would not need Timberlands. Not that I have a bought any. The last pair of boots I bought were from Ethical Wares.
What is even more interesting is that their new Regent Street store features a huge amount of reclaimed materials i.e. floorboards, Victorian doors and beams sourced from demolished schools and Churches. Additionally they have used sustainably sourced oak and beech and all metalwork is recyclable and all paints are water-based.
