Timberland Earthkeepers

timberlandYou might remember a few months ago, I told you about one of my favourite blogs, The Green Familia. It’s run by Brenda Cuby who is passionate and energetic about her mission to help us all go green.

Well I’m really excited to be sharing a guest post by Brenda today! Brenda likes to try and encourage people to make small ethical changes to their lifestyle which help preserve this wonderful world we live in by promoting the eco-alternatives available.

Today she is here to tell us about Earthkeepers.

Over 1,000,000 trees have been planted by Timberland Earthkeepers

The Timberland Earthkeepers movement is all about getting the community to come together, have some eco-fun and to make a difference.  They are organising events, raising awareness and bringing together a group of like-minded individuals who want to do all they can to help protect our fantastic world.

Timberland realise that being a brand leader in their market, they have the chance to help create something special and to infuse others with their passion for the planet.  They created their Earthkeepers range to show how committed they are to bringing ethical products to the forefront of style and comfort.  Every Timberland shoe carries a Green Index rating tracing their carbon footprint.

One of their big projects is the Timberland Earthkeepers Tree Planting programme.  Over 1,000,000 trees in 26 countries have been planted by more than 8,500 volunteers, with this number growing daily as more and more people get involved.  What they want is for more than one million people to sign up and join them in their effort to help preserve the earth and make sustainable living the norm.

If you would like to join the Timberland Earthkeepers group of supporters, you can find out more information on the website, where you can read more information on the background and what their future plans are.
