Even though we honor the earth every day here at Eco Chick, we still cherish Earth Day. We can’t think of a better way to keep time and count down to the big day — which is April 22nd, by the way — than by wearing a sustainable and chic timepiece from Sprout Watches — makers of men’s, women’s and kid’s watches that are sleek-looking, eco-friendly and affordable.
Let us count all of the ways their timepieces give back to the Mother Earth.
Say goodbye to leather and opt for a sustainable Fish Skin watch from Sprout
In honor of Earth Day, Sprout will plant a tree for every watch that’s purchased from their site as part of their work with Trees for the Future, a non-profit dedicated to helping communities plant trees around the world. Sprout also donates 1 percent of its sales to 1% for the Planet and supports Riverkeeper, NY’s clean-water advocate.
But its sourcing of sustainable materials used to make each timepiece is equally impressive: biodegradable corn resin, organic cotton, fish leather straps, mineral crystal lenses, mercury-free batteries, conflict-free diamonds, bamboo, mother-of-pearl, and Tyvek®.
White Corn Resin Watch
If you’re the sort of person who prefers to surf, swim, maybe even shower with your sustainably crafted watch, Sprout’s new water-resistant line will be right up your alley. Just in time for Summer fun, this new line will go 165-feet down under with you, and it’s eco-friendly too.
Looks like Sprout Watches celebrates Earth Day every day, too.
