Sprout watches are fun, functional, and eco-friendly

sprout-watchesThe Sprout Watches company makes “eco-friendly timepieces” for women (top row), men (middle row), and children (bottom row).  They remind me a bit of Swatch watches, and they have lots of different styles with simple, utilitarian faces, fun faces, or chronograph functions and in neutral colors to bright, colorful designs.  What sets Sprout watches apart is the materials with which they are made.  They use “easy on the planet” material like corn resin, bamboo, Tyvek, and cork.  Even the packaging is made from recycled materials.  There are many more styles than are shown in the above photo.  Watches for women range in price from $30 – $80; men’s watches are $30 – $75; and children’s watches are available from $30 – $50.

    I love these watches…and they love the planet.

    I bought one of these last year. It lasted about one month and then the hands fell off. Not worth the effort to get it repaired.

    I’ve had mine a little over a month and it already is fogged up, even though I take it off for showers and doing dishes and things like that.
