Where and How Timberlands are Made
Timberland boots were founded by Nathan Swartz who started to created Timberlands in 1918. They are made in the Timberland factories that are located in Tennessee, Dominican Republic, and China. Timberland boots are made with plastic water bottles and soda cans! Can you believe that?! They use Cowhide Leather on their boots because they allow the boots to durable during the winter and comfortable at the same time. In the factories, they stitch the leather on a model of the boot, then press the logo and the different designs after wards.

The Benefits Timberlands Have On
Timberland boots have many benefits on the society. They use plastic water bottles to make their boots and shoes. To date, 128 million used plastic bottles have made their way into Timberland shoes and boots. In Timberland products for everything from linings, laces, uppers and insulation, to faux shearling and even the backing of faux fur are made from recycled materials. This means animals and non recycled materials are being saved for other purposes. This truly benefits the society.
Timberlands sadly also affect the environment negatively. They kill animals to use their leather, fur, and wool in their shoes and boots. The production of these materials can cause climate change, pollution, and land devastation. Also, in some cases if the same animal is being killed it could cause that species to become extinct. This would be a major upset to the environment. As you can see, Timberlands can ruin the environment and the things living in it.
