My pick of winter boots from Spartoo shoes for this month definitely has to be from the Timberland Earthkeeper Collection. The Timberland Earthkeeper Collection is a great example of how a big brand can implement sustainable practices and still make great products. I also love how practical, durable and long lasting Timberland boots are but they are also very stylish and the traditional styles are iconic.The Earthkeeper collection features at least 50% recycled materials with their lining s being made form plastic bottles and the soles from Green Rubber. They also have an ergonomic insole for amazing comfort.
Whilst the yellow boot is the most well known Timberland design, they also have many other styles so don’t be put put off if the Lumberjack look is not for you.
Timberland as a brand are committed to reducing the impact of their operations and are really transparent with their website clearly detailing both their goals and progress with regard to both social and environmental. The metrics that they are measure include all aspects of their operations from use of eco conscious material to environmental performance of their tanneries, emissions at every stage of the process and social performance of factories. I definitely feel confident that Timberland are not just paying lip service to the issues of ethics and sustainability.
What do you think of Timberland, would you wear them?
I hope that you are having a good week.
With warmest wishes
