Who knew that you could get eco-friendly watches as super-cool and funky as this! Sprout is a watch company that professes to make its watches as eco-friendly as possible without promising the impossible. It says that the watches are about 80% eco-friendly, which is impressively honest!
The watches come in a huge range of fun designs, but this simple heart motif is perfect for the young at heart romantic with green sensibilities, or the eco-warrior teen with an eye for fashion.
Sprout uses corn resin in place of plastic – renewable resource and bio-degradable; mineral crystal for the watch face instead of plastic plexi-glass; mercury free batteries; bamboo for the dial; and of course recycled packaging materials.
