About Timberland Earthkeepers
Timberland is a popular U.S. footwear manufacturer. Founded in 1952, in its first twenty years it produced a wide variety of footwear and the company name was The Abington Shoe Company. In 1973, Abington produced the Timberland range of waterproof boots which proved so popular that they became the flagship product and the company was renamed Timberland.
The traditional Timberland boot has remained enduringly popular, but the company has expanded into other casual footwear (including deck shoes and skate shoes), which feature the same waterproof design used in the boots. Timberland also produces other goods, including eye wear, clothing and watches.
Timberland prioritises corporate social responsibility in its activities, providing such a positive experience for its employees that it was voted one of America?s 100 best companies to work for in 2007. Its commitment to CSR is also evident from the launch of the Earthkeepers range.
Earthkeepers products focus on being eco-friendly and maintaining a low carbon footprint based on Timberland?s Green Index Rating. All of the shoes are produced using recycled and recyclable materials. They are also made from premium leather and all boots have added padding to ensure a comfortable fit around the ankle.
