Go Green With The Sprout Biodegradable Watch

Watches are one accessory that's crying out for some green love. They're worn daily, changed often and killed frequently with an accidental bump. Sprout understands and has developed a line of fashionable timepieces that can be tossed away without remorse.

These watches are great. They are good-looking, colorful and 80-93% biodegradable. They are made of wonderful materials such as bamboo, organic cotton, mineral crystal lenses, and mercury-free batteries. Sprout has even managed to sell them at a reasonable price. The entry-level model starts at $30, while the top-of-line model climbs to a pricey, but not exorbitant $75.

whenever I see biodegradable on something I always feel like I can litter.

All sounds pretty cool. I use my watch alot and it's got scratches on it and I've broken a few in the past. This might be the right watch for me. Loved the post, very infomative.

Awesome, and cheap. Always love a product that doesn't murder people/animals/other forms of life in the process of making it.

As much as I need a new watch, I could possibly buy a non-biodegradable one and a hammer when it dies to dispose of it properly. I wonder also if it can last so long it starts to biodegrade when you're wearing it.

I'll take a Tag Heuer myself. People mostly just to capitalize on the biodegradable/organic/etc. I want a watch that will last.

Pretty cool concept. I saw a wall clock made from buttons the other night at an art exhibition.

Also mechanical watches are 100% recyclable, just metal and glass...not sure if leather brands are considered biodegradable so I'll stick with my statement for metal banded ones :)
