Timberland is opening a new retail store today in New York City, near Macy’s in Herald Square. The store reflects the company’s commitment to sustainability through the use of recycled materials and eco-conscious building practices. The new store’s products include Timberland’s Earthkeepers collection of footwear made from eco-conscious materials. The opening is part of a broader expansion effort by the company which includes similar new stores in Boston and San Francisco, with others planned for key markets later in the year.

The Medtronic Foundation has donated $25,000 to support flood relief efforts in the Memphis area. The donation will be directed through the Mid-South Red Cross to provide basic needs for residents displaced by Mississippi River flooding. Medtronic employees in the area are being offered paid leave to volunteer for relief efforts. The company has 1,500 employees based in Memphis.
