  • FSC-certified Wood

    We use sustainably harvested wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Using FSC-certified wood helps reduce water pollution, destruction of habitats and the negative impacts of logging on indigenous people.

  • Read All About It

    They may be sustainable but they’re not all the same. Every Timberland store features a plaque or wall hanging that details the sustainable elements that went into that particular store.

  • Recycled Stoneware Floor Tiles

    Many of our floor tiles contain 70% recycled materials, which reduces our use of virgin materials.

  • Reclaimed Display Tables

    In many of our stores, we take old industrial pieces that were once used in mills and factories and repurpose them to hold our footwear and apparel.

  • Low VOC Paint

    It’s been proven that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) contribute to ground level ozone and can compromise our health, our forests and our ecosystems. That’s why we use low voc paint.

  • Reclaimed Wood

    In any given Timberland store, chances are good that the wood used for its floors were once used for something else. Some pieces of wood may have been used for the side of a barn. Or maybe some of the fixtures used to be part of a snow fence in Vermont. By reusing building materials like these, we reduce the environmental impacts associated with virgin materials.

  • LED Lighting

    By using 18 watt LED bulbs on the sales floor, we've reduced our lighting energy consumption by as much as 75%--conserving resources, reducing emissions and saving money.

  • Earthkeepers® Product Collection

    We're constantly looking for and inventing innovative materials that allow us to reduce our impact. Our Earthkeepers® collection includes materials like Green Rubber™ soles, recycled PET materials, and organic cotton.

There's more than meets the eye when you walk into a Timberland® store. Get the inside scoop on some of our eco-conscious store features.

Whenever we build a new Timberland® store, we make sure to follow a few rules. Here are the six building standards we follow:


1. Locations

We try to build new stores on previously developed land, and in places that are easily accessed by public transportation or even by bicycle. One example of these standards is our store on Newbury St. in Boston–which once served as a schoolhouse.


2. Water

Better plumbing fittings and smarter fixtures and appliances are a huge part of conserving water usage. We make sure to buy the right low-flow fixtures and see that they’re installed for maximum efficiency.


3. Energy

From smarter lighting choices to proper monitoring of resources and even generating energy, there are a lot of ways to decrease our power usage in our stores. All new Timberland stores use 18-watt LED lights, which use 75% less energy than older Timberland® stores, as well as other Energy Star rated appliances.

4. Materials

Walk into many Timberland® stores, and chances are it won’t look like any other you’ve been to. That’s because we hunt down old out-of-use items from buildings in the area to use in our stores. Anything from old shutters to giant industrial machine parts–we’ll find a use for ‘em.


5. Environment

It’s not just the outdoors we’re concerned about. We also care about the environmental quality of the insides of our stores, and its effects on our employees and customers. For example, we try to use Low-VOC paints, which reduce a host of health risks versus paints that do emit these harmful chemicals. Check out our “Eco-Conscious Store Tour” to learn more about why we use Low-VOC paints and what else goes into building a sustainable store.


6. Design

We know that eco-consciousness is always evolving, which is why we’re constantly looking for new and better ways to build our stores. It’s a process that has no finish line, and the challenge to out-do ourselves with each store is one we’re happy to take on every time.
