Earthkeepers Cab Confessions

There’s nothing like a late night and a little mountain air to loosen people up. While at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival last week, we offered free taxi rides to Festival attendees in exchange for their “Earthkeepers confessions.” Our passengers shared enlightening, inspiring and just plain entertaining thoughts about what they do (or DON’T do) to make a positive impact on the environment. See for yourself:

Earthkeeping Pledges Aplenty at Sundance

The scene at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival hasn’t been all snow and celebrities (although apparently there’s been loads of both) … at the Timberland booth, festival-goers are invited to make their own personal pledge to help preserve the environment and protect the outdoors.  Here’s Amanda with a show and tell:

And, here are more of our favorite pledges that have come in at Sundance so far:

Inspired to make your own Earthkeeping pledge?  Share it with us here.  And stay tuned … the curtain doesn’t close at the Sundance Film Festival for a few more days, and we’ve got lots more to share.  You can find additional videos and photos from our Timberland team’s Sundance experience on the Festivals page of our website.

Postcards from Park City

Welcome to Park City

The forecast for this week’s 2012 Sundance Film Festival calls for cold snow, fabulous films and moderate-to-heavy celebrity sightings:

SNOW, Sundance and the Chance to Win Free Stuff

Attention, winter gear lovers: in honor of Timberland’s 4th consecutive year as the Official Footwear and Outerwear Sponsor of the Sundance Film Festival, SNOW magazine is giving away Timberland gear to one lucky reader!  Visit SNOW’s website to enter, and hurry up: contest ends January 30th.

If you’re lucky enough to be in Park City next week, stop by the Timberland booth to say hi!  We’ll be offering special giveaways and showcasing our latest products.  And if you can’t be there in person, check out the Festivals section of our website — we’ll be bringing you regular updates, photos and videos from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival all week long.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year? It’s Actually in January

If you’re a film lover, that is.

The 2012 Sundance Film Festival starts in 3 weeks, and it’s all we can do to keep our Timberland Sundance team from flying to Park City right now.  They’re THAT excited.

And why shouldn’t they be?  Fresh mountain air, fresh powder snow, great films and the best people watching and celebrity sighting you could hope for in late January.

But 3 weeks is such a long time to wait.  Which is why we thought we’d share a few of our favorite festival photos from years past to get us all in the Sundance mood:

Winter Style Winners

We received so many great photos for our Girlfriend Getaway Sweepstakes that we had to share some of our favorites.  Although there was only one grand prize winner, you’re all winners in our style book.

Thanks to all of our participants for submitting photos this year!

If snow and style are your thing, stay tuned … we’re headed to the Sundance Film Festival next month, where we hope to find plenty of both.  You’ll find Sundance stories here in just a few weeks!

And the Winner is …

The results from our Girlfriend Getaway Sweepstakes are in!  Congratulations to Charisse, who will be packing her bags and heading to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival with 3 friends, courtesy of Timberland.

Charisse’s winning photo — in which she and a girlfriend are showing off their best “mountain style,” was selected based on its creativity and originality, and for the strength of the message she included with her photo entry.  See for yourself:

Aimee and I have traveled the world as volunteers and backpackers. We’re proud to support a company that is committed to protecting the environment and world while maintaining quality products. Timberland’s products cultivate a passion for the outdoors and give us the comfort to create our adventures in style. Please choose us to attend the Sundance Film Festival for our next adventure!

If you aren’t one of Charisse’s getaway girlfriends, don’t worry … we’ll be sharing the Sundance experience via updates, photos and videos here on the blog.  Stay tuned.

Share Your Style, Win a Sundance Getaway!

Cold weather is no excuse for allowing your good fashion sense to hibernate (another Saturday night in your Snuggie, really?).  Show us what your best winter wardrobe looks like, and you could win a trip for 4 to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival!

Entering is easy:

  1. Go to Timberland’s Facebook page and upload a photo of your “mountain chic” style (I’m thinking Sound of Music meets Project Runway, but define it as you wish).  Be sure to include a clever and descriptive caption, and be quick about it — the contest ends November 9th.
  2. Tell all your Facebook friends to go vote!  The top 10 photos receiving the most public votes from all eligible entries will win a pair of Timberland boots and a chance to win the grand prize.

The Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the top 10 by Timberland judges based on the creativity and originality of both their style and their photo caption.  Win the grand prize and you’ll be on your way to opening weekend at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival with 3 BFFs to enjoy movie tickets, ski passes, spa packages and more.  And since Timberland is the official footwear and outerwear sponsor of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, we’ll be sure to hook you up with Timberland footwear and gear for your big weekend away.

For complete contest rules and details, head over to our Facebook page. Then stay tuned – we’ll be back next month to announce the winner!

Sundance “Superheroes”

The word on the street is that while the Sundance Film Festival is teeming with unparalleled talent this week, much of it has arrived woefully unprepared for the  Park City weather conditions.  Thank goodness there’s an outdoor company on hand with cozy boots and jackets to keep filmmakers warm and dry:

Go Hug a Boot!

You may or may not have heard that we are the official outerwear sponsor for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah! Cool, right? What’s even cooler is that Timberland held a contest through Facebook that awarded one winner the opportunity to attend the annual festival, on their dime! Epic, I know!

You can tell by my enthusiasm that I am a huge movie buff. I have been known to say that certain movie stores would not be in business if it weren’t for my rental account! I immediately thought, “I’m in it to win it, I want this SO bad!” and I’m always up for a little competition. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I read further in the company email announcement that employees were not eligible to win the grand prize! I was bummed, but I understood.  As I sulked in my chair I read further and found there was a light at the end of the tunnel: One employee winner would be chosen out of the submissions to win a coveted official filmmaker jacket and a free pair of boots! I guess the closest thing to attending the festival is being able to sport the official gear that is only given to filmmakers and programmers! In fact, only 320 jackets will be gifted during the 10 day festival.

I immediately went to it and started brainstorming how I was going to present my favorite boots and why I was so deserving of this jacket! Finally, I had a light bulb moment and decided the perfect pose and caption to go along with my boots! I was confident it would be the winner! I decided I would do a play on words and tie it in with tree hugging since, firstly, our company logo is a tree and secondly, my Earthkeeper Mount Holly Duck boots are not only the most durable, waterproof, comfortable and functionally stylish boots I’ve ever owned, but in purchasing and wearing them I am being environmentally conscious as well: Double win! Who would have thought that one could make a difference by simply purchasing shoes!? It’s definitely a way for those who don’t necessarily like to get dirty to contribute to a greener world…and look darn good doing it!

So, here is my official submission:

Over the next few weeks, I waited with bated breath and rallied my friends and family on Facebook to vote for my photo! I prayed that the Timberland marketing team would find my submission as clever as I thought it was. That’s all I could do, right?! AND???????

Da na na naaaaaaa!

THEY DID! I was chosen as the winner of the employee contest and am beyond excited to proudly wear my Timberland filmmaker jacket! I bet you won’t argue when I tell you, “It was the best hug my boots ever gave!”
