Earthkeeper Hero Cate Trotter has had a busy month of hosting trend tours , which showcase all that’s hip and green in London. The theme of one of her more popular trend tours these days is “Green Retail” … and as it so happens, Timberland’s Regent Street store is one of her featured tour stops! (We couldn’t be prouder.)
Cate’s retail trend tours are designed to inspire creative teams and entrepreneurs to rethink their own retail spaces with an eye toward sustainability. What makes our Regent Street store sustainable enough to make Cate’s cut?
- Physical elements such as reclaimed timber and repurposed seating (old cinema seats work just as well for weary shoe shoppers).
- Open space, flexible displays and walls with interchangeable panels – key to refreshing the store’s interior design more easily and efficiently, without starting from scratch (and without creating more material waste).
- “Storytelling” elements which speak (quietly, not in-your-face) to our corporate commitment to the environment.
We’re thrilled to be featured in Cate’s trend tours … and would love to hear from you which other retailers you think are showcasing sustainability in an effective way.
