Maybe it’s a symptom of our Yankee frugality, but at Timberland we LOVE to recycle. There’s something oddly thrilling about giving old stuff like plastic bottles and discarded tires a second life as recycled materials in our products.
And as we get more excited about recycling, we get a little crazy. For example: Recycled coffee grounds in our S.Café® yarn (the grounds trap odors and absorb sweat — who knew?). And when you’re designing a jacket and you need it to be waterproof and durable, why not start by thinking about other materials that are waterproof and durable? Like, I dunno … fishing nets and ropes, salvaged from the ocean?
Introducing ReNet™ recycled nylon fabric:
Using ReNet™ in our products means less waste in the landfill (or worse – floating around in the ocean) — and wearing a jacket with ReNet™ in it gives YOU a whopper of a good story to tell on your next fishing trip.
Learn more about ReNet™ and the other recycled and renewable materials we use in our products in the Timberland Technology Guide.
