  • Outdoor apparel retailer Timberland is testing online shoppers’ willingness to help the environment by slowing down delivery as Amazon.com drives retailers toward pricier, more polluting one-day shipping.
  • New Hampshire-based Timberland, part of VF Corp , since August has offered to plant a tree every time customers choose to have their orders delivered in 4-8 days versus the standard 3 days.
