The label will include how much energy was needed to produce Timberland footwear, the amount of Timberland's energy that is generated from renewable resources such as the sun, wind or water, as well as community details like total number of hours Timberland employees volunteer in the community. Messaging inside the boxes will ask consumers, "What kind of footprint will you leave?"
