All About the Brand Sprout – Eco-friendly Watches

Eco-friendly Watches -Sprout Watches

Sprout is another company with Eco-friendly ambitions at its core. The company sets out to make the most eco-forward watches available.  Sprout Watches set out to create an eco-forward lifestyle brand which utilizes the highest quality materials while striving to protect the Earth’s natural resources.

The Sprout corporate website highlights all the materials they use in their products.  These materials include biodegradable corn resin, bamboo, cork, and organic cotton.  For a complete list of materials that are used, refer to the eco-facts section of their site.  Two of the elements that I wondered about from a sustainability perspective were the mother of pearl and the Swarovski crystal.

Sprout defines the eco-facts of these elements as the following:

“Natural Mother of Pearl – Our Mother of Pearl watches are all declared through the Dept. of Fish & Wildlife in the U.S. and will never be from forbidden or endangered species.

Swarovski CrystalsSprout Watches is proud to offer models using Swarovski’s new ADVANCED CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY, the new DNA of Crystal, which is a patented, lead-free formula using only carefully selected raw materials that are in compliance with all international standards.  Researched and developed for more than 10 years, this major technological breakthrough in the ADVANCED CRYSTAL offers unsurpassed brilliance with the highest precision, quality, and clarity for flawless beauty.”
