Product Description


Eco-Friendliness

The small size Sprout™ watch is 80% eco-friendly (by weight) The large size Sprout™ watch is 86% eco-friendly (by weight)

Compliance

All Sprout™ watches are in compliance with the CPSIA and are lead and phthalate free. The corn resin we use is in full compliance with the American ASTM D6400 as well as the European EN13432 standards for compostable material.

Materials


Corn Resin

The shelf life of corn resin is similar to synthetic plastics. It will not break down during regular wear and use. In a composite environment, corn resin is 99% biodegradable in carbon dioxide and water within 365 days. This means that if you place your watch in the garden, it will biodegrade. Since it’s made from corn, it comes from a renewable resource. Conventional plastics use an estimated 200,000 barrels of oil a day in the United States alone but because corn resin is bio-based, it therefore uses no oil resources in production.

Organic Cotton

The majority of cotton is grown with toxic chemicals. Conventional cotton requires the use of enormous amounts of pesticides - 25% of all insecticides and 10% of all pesticides - which have a huge environmental impact. It is one of the most environmentally damaging crops to grow, as about 84 million pounds of pesticides are sprayed on US cotton crops alone in one year. Some of these chemicals are considered to be the most toxic chemicals in the world. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment and is grown without the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.

Bamboo

Bamboo is considered eco-friendly based on its properties as 1) a natural (nonsynthetic) fiber, 2) a quick-growth plant (it's in the grass family) that sequesters greenhouse gases, and 3) a renewable plant that can grow back after its three to five year harvesting period. It largely doesn't need chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers to grow.

Mineral Crystal

Most lenses in the medium price range of watches are made from plexiglass, a type of synthetic plastic. Sprout™ lenses are made from Mineral crystal which is a type of glass made from sand. It can technically be recycled.

Mercury Free Battery

Mercury is actually a neurotoxin, which is harmful to both animals and humans. Exposure to even small amounts of mercury over a long period may cause negative health effects including damage to the brain, kidney, lungs and a developing baby. Sprout™ watches use only Mercury Free batteries.

Recycled Fibers

Sprout™ packaging is made from at least 80% post-consumer fibers. It is both recycled and recyclable.

Enclosed in each box is a grass seed card. Follow the instructions and grow a mini grass garden, right on your desk.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Simply put, our mission is to make the most eco-friendly watch we possibly can. We don’t believe in inflated claims with lots of exclamation points at the end (no one likes to be screamed at). What we do is tell you the truth about who we are, what we do and what we can & can’t do to make our product more environmentally friendly. We believe in promising less and delivering more.

WHO WE ARE
A company that has been in the business of making timepieces for over 50 years. Our strength as a company comes from our employees who collectively have invaluable knowledge, technical expertise, experience and a real passion for the traditions of watch making. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have a bunch of ambitious, freethinking, rebel employees with an entrepreneurial spirit who are committed to looking ahead to a greener future for our company and our planet. Asking the simple question, "How can we make a greener watch?" they looked for an answer. After countless hours of research and development and a lot of lunches eaten over their keyboards, two years later Sprout was born.

    This broke after a few months of wearing it (and not wearing it everyday).
