Product Description

From Amazon.ca

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 that 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.

Our Mission Statement

Simply put, we set out to make the most eco-forward watches available. Truthful, transparent, and to the point--we'll never be anything less.

Who We Are

A company that, after more than 50 years producing best-selling timepieces, set out to create a line of high-quality, affordable eco-forward watches. From the start, we made the conscious decision to be materialistic in a most unusual way. From corn resin, conflict-free diamonds, bamboo and cork in our watches to recycled content in our packaging, we focused on materials that are easy on the planet. Our strength lies in our long-standing passion for the traditional art of watch-making combined with an eye for design and an entrepreneurial, free-thinking spirit. The way we see it, it's all about choices--the ones we make in our day-to-day operations and the ones we give consumers by offering an alternative to the status-quo.

I bought this watch as a Xmas present for my daughter. The plastic part around the face broke after one month and the strap has nothing to attach to, so it cannot be worn.
