A Sprout Watch for My Eco-Forward Husband

Sprout Watches are becoming more and more popular not just because of their green advocacy but also because of their unique designs.   From classic styles to funky and avant-garde, Sprout Watches has something for everyone.  I myself already have a couple of these environmentally-friendly timepieces.  I love how they make for great functional accessories and help save the planet earth at the same time.  Now, I’m getting the Sprout Watch ST/3400BKBKGY ($65) for my husband for Father’s Day.

My husband loves wood and the natural brown bamboo subdials in this Sprout model would definitely appeal to him.  The three small subdials indicate the day, date, and 24-hr clock. The brown bamboo also provides a great contrast to the black corn resin dial.  The case and the bezel are also made from black corn resin.  The black detailed case is offset by a bright white Tyvek strap which appears like leather but is actually made of high-density fiber.  Tyvek is water resistant and tear resistant, and most importantly, recyclable.

There’s really more to this watch than its elegant appearance.  Most of the materials used are bio-degradable and were made leaving the least carbon footprint possible.  Corn resin for one does not require the use of oil resources during production.  Though it is 99% biodegradable and will decompose within one year when in a compost environment, corn resin will last the same as synthetic plastics with regular wear and use.  The bamboo used in the subdials is also eco-friendly as they do not require the use of pesticides and other harmful chemicals to grow.  Instead of plexiglass, mineral crystal is used in Sprout lenses.  This type of glass is made from sand and can be recycled.  Sprout watches also come with mercury free batteries.  Even the packaging is eco-friendly as it is made of mostly of recycled materials.
