Timberland walks the talk; asks world leaders to lead


Came across this ad for Timberland in the e-edition of Metro, UK. While cause-related brands are having a field day, thanks to the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, nice to see a hard core product related ad tying up with the event. Thankfully, they aren’t simply stopping with a plea of ‘do more, leaders’, but walking the talk.

The copy says:

While our government leaders are debating climate change in Copenhagen, we’re actually doing something about it. Our Earthkeepers boots use 42% Green Rubber soles that come from recycled car tyros. And in just three years, we’ve reduced our direct carbon emissions by 27%.

Want to do your part? Tell the word leaders to do more than talk in Copenhagen. Tell them to lead.

The website, Don’t Tell Us It Can’t Be Done, urges you to sign a petition and has links to other social media sites of the campaign.
