11,2010. Three years after the company started rating the environmental impact of some of its products, it said it plans to expand its “Green Index” to all its footwear by 2012.
Syracuse, NY Syracuse has been taking credit in recent years for being a “green community.” The Emerald City and all that. The Timberland Co. has opened its new Boston retail location, at 201 Newbury Street. Construction on the store housed in the old Prince School building began earlier this year.
In step with Timberland stores worldwide, the new 2,500 sq. ft. space is designed to reflect the company’s long standing commitment to sustainability. Eco conscious build out features include the use of reclaimed wood and other materials; FSC certified woods; LED lighting; Energy Star eligible equipment and appliances;
low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints; “Ecotech” recycled stoneware floor tiles; tabletops reclaimed from athletic bleachers; and water conserving plumbing fixtures.
The space also features an original 25 ft. x 4 ft. mural, which celebrates Boston neighborhoods as well as “green spaces” throughout the Boston area.
“Everything we do is informed by our New England heritage from how we design our products and build our stores to how we engage with the local community, said Jeff Swartz, president CEO, Timberland.
My comments: First the boots and now the stores. Then the rest of the boots. Timberland is out to show it’s back to nature and is, well, walking the walk.
