Product Description

Now is the time to go green with the Sprout Unisex Corn Resin and Blue Organic Cotton Strap Watch. This watch features a corn resin case, bezel and buckle, attached to a certified organic cotton seafood green strap with light blue contrast stitching. The attractive unisex look of this timepiece includes a bamboo dial with fun and funky Arabic numerals marking each hour position. This Sprout design reduces the size of your carbon footprint with a mercury free battery and offers a fantastic casual accessory for him or her. Reliable quartz movement and a durable mineral crystal add up to create a lasting timepiece.

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 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.

Conflict Free Diamonds

Our diamonds are all certified and conflict free.

Mother-of-Pearl

Our Mother-of-Pearl watches are all declared through the Department of Fish and Wildlife in the United States and will never be from forbidden or endangered species.

Tyvek

Tyvek is a high-density fiber which is strong, water and tear resistant and is recyclable. Tyvek can also be safely incinerated and if recycling or incineration are not options, Tyvek can be safely landfilled. Given the nature of this material, Tyvek is supple and develops a leather-like look over time.

Cork

Cork is a highly sustainable resource, being both biodegradable and renewable. Cork material is harvested from the bark of the cork oak tree without incurring any harm to the tree, which can live up to 250 years. In fact, when the cork is harvested and the bark removed, the tree will absorb 3-5 times as much CO2, and give off more O2, than a tree left idle. Because of this Cork forests support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats where plant diversity can reach 135 species per square meter, many of which having culinary, aromatic or medicinal values.

Casio

With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.

Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

    Basically, I love the watch-- I bought two-- but had to punch another hole in the band so that it would fit my wrist, which is small but not tiny. Fortunately, I have Fray-check for sealing raw-edged fabric and my small hole punchers worked well, but an additional hole would have helped. However, I'm quite fond of the watch, the colors, and the overall concept.

    Great-looking watch and a great price! I have the light green/blue large face. Very fun watch. It's going to look great this summer especially!!! The watch is very well made, runs accurately and I may buy a few more colors. I've recommended this watch to friends, who have then purchsed one.

    The colors are nice and overall I like the watch. It is pretty huge so I probably would've been better off buying the same color one but smaller.

    The only other bothersome thing is that the band sort of warped over time. It kind of twisted/darkened - definitely looked pretty worn & this watch wasn't an everyday wearing thing for me. It was a little disappointing for that fact.

    I love this watch! I was drawn to it because I have a metal allergy and have never been able to wear a watch without a rash. I love it! I think that some of the eco-friendliness of it is over the top, but it's ok because the watch is awesome. It is big and chunky and funky, I want them to come out with even more fun watches that I could dress up but this one is awesome!
