12.2 million tons of textile waste is generated annually in the EU with over half of this amount either landfilled or incinerated.

Timberland’s Second Chance program is one solution to this issue, helping to divert unwanted footwear from landfills by providing a simple, rewarding way for our customers to do the right thing.


Bring your used shoes to one of our participating Timberland stores: they can be of any condition and from any brand.


Put your items in the designated Second Chance’s box and help Timberland to create a potentially infinite loop of recycling.


With each pair of shoes collected, you will become part of Second Chance, helping to protect our planet and give a second chance to your used shoes.

How does Second Chance work?

Our Second Chance program encourages people to drop off unwanted shoes at participating Timberland Retail and Outlet stores* throughout Europe. It doesn’t matter what condition the shoes are in or what brand they are. The items dropped in our collection bins are sent to a recycling center where they are carefully sorted based on over 400 categories. They are then repurposed for reuse to give them a Second Chance and extend their life or recycled into raw materials for use in products like insulation, carpet padding, stuffing for toys, and fibers for new clothing.

Our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our products

During our long history of creating shoes, we’ve always thought about the environmental footprint our company has on the world. That’s why we are committed to first create footwear of high quality that will last, and second, to use as much recycled, organic and renewable materials as possible in our products. In 2016, 84% of our footwear included at least one material containing recycled, organic or renewable (ROR) content. We are committed to get this number to 100% by 2020.

Second Chance stems from our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our products at all stages of their life cycle, even those stages out of our direct control. To help promote the program, participants earn a coupon of 10% towards their next purchase.
