Come next spring, Timberland consumers will be able to enjoy  and show off a footwear and bag collection that is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Timberland partnered with Thread, a Pennsylvania-based manufacturer that uses only sustainable fabrics to create fashion. The commitment to eco-friendly fashion is to be applauded, but there’s something more behind this collaboration. To make this collection happen, Thread will be employing people from developing countries like Haiti and Honduras. Thread will also invest monetary funding, in-kind donations and even offering job training, healthcare services and educational opportunities to Haitians.
