Eco-wise Watches From Sprout & a Giveaway!


Finding eco-friendly replacements for everyday items can often be a challenge. There are some things you may not even realize have an eco-option. Take your wristwatch for instance. Did you realize there even was such a thing as a watch made with resources that are less of a burden on our environment? I didn't  and was so excited to find out that there was.

Sprout Watches not only gives you an eco-friendly option, but they give you a wide selection of beautiful wristwatches to choose from. My husband and I both try to be eco-conscious and feel so proud now that when asked about our lovely watches we can share this great option with our friends, family and even curious strangers.

My watch is the style 5512, which is a large boyfriend style watch with an adorable owl on the mother of pearl dial. It has a wrist band made from organic cotton and a corn resin case, buckle and case-back. It’s a fun, playful style that has certainly been noticed, and goes with my down-to-earth style. I think it matches my personality fantastically too - fun yet wise.

My husband’s style 6502 is a really stylish sporty looking watch. It has a corn resin case, adjustable bracelet, bezel, caseback and reflector ring. In addition, it also has a lovely genuine mother of pearl dial with an electro-luminescent feature, and printed indexes and outside minute track. I really love that it is biodegradable.

Both of our watches have lead-free mineral crystal lenses, and mercury free batteries. All Sprout watches are made in a way to have the least impact on the earth and are made from at least 80% natural materials. They are all either biodegradable, recyclable or renewable.  Even the box it came in was made from recycled materials and the pillow is made from all natural organic cotton.

I hope you will take some time and browse the wonderful selection of eco-friendly watches at Sprout Watches. You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Pinterest.
