In an effort to focus on sustainability for the Spring/Summer 2020 season, Timberland has crafted a collection rooted in ReBOTL, a material made from recycled plastic bottles. To date, Timberland has recycled more than 445 metric tons of plastic waste with this innovative method, which transforms the discarded bottles into RPET, or Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate.
Comprised of earth-toned outerwear, footwear and accessories, the recycled workwear collection uses ReBOTL in footwear uppers and linings, jackets, and bag shells and linings. Highlights of the seasonal range include a selection of men’s outerwear styles, like coach and worker jackets, bombers and windbreakers, as well as two pant styles. Timberland patches, reflective tape and utilitarian pockets accent the durable, workwear-inspired pieces. Each garment is made up of almost 40 percent recycled plastic bottles. In contrast, 62 percent of all bags in the collection use ReBOTL material.
Rounding out the collection are high-performance sneakers informed by an integrated tongue and eco-conscious ReBOTL fabric and sustainable leather upper. Available in green, gray and black colorways, the shoes feature an easy lace-up system, EVA midsole for cushioning and shock absorption, and a breathable mesh lining.
