Sprout watches claim to be 80-86% eco-friendly by weight, depending on their size. Some of the features that make them eco-friendly include:
- Biodegradable corn resin bodies and buckles
- Organic cotton bands
- Bamboo faces
- Mineral crystal lenses (as opposed to plastic)
- Mercury-free batteries
- Recycled/recyclable packaging
While the Sprout Watch lacks in features, it makes up with elegant simplicity. They offer an analogue time display and fun colors.
They’re also water-resistant and have quartz movements. Sprout watches are available at various retailers, which are listed on their website, and retail for around $30.
