AP | HOLLY RAMER | Posted 05.25.2011 | Green

CONCORD, N.H. — Wyclef Jean and The Timberland Co. are teaming up to sell eco-friendly footwear and support reforestation of the singer's native Haiti.

Jean, who achieved fame with The Fugees before going solo, collaborated with the New Hampshire-based footwear and apparel company on a 16-boot collection going on sale in November. Timberland also will sell T-shirts designed by Haitian children, and a new line of organic shirts and hats will be sold at Jean's concerts, with a cut of the profits going to Jean's Yele Haiti foundation.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Jean says he hopes the partnership will inspire children and put a new face on his homeland. The partnership is part of Timberland's Earthkeepers program, which promotes environmental and social activism.
