Win an stunning watch from Sprout

December 10, 2010

I love learning new things! At Fashion Week this fall I became more educated about green fashion in just a few days than I ever thought possible.

Some of the most exciting facts I learned involve the huge variety of alternative, eco-friendly materials that forward-thinking companies are incorporating into their designs. I already had experience with the luxurious, soft fabric that firms like Casualmere create out of bamboo and I was definitely a fan of firms that use reclaimed precious metals like WHIMSY jewelry. But a corn resin watch? Really?

My instruction in new green materials like corn resin was facilitated by the folks at Sprout, a firm that creates stunning watches from – yes! – corn resin. Since the watch bracelet is made from corn, it comes from a renewable resource. And in a compost environment, corn resin is 99% biodegradable to carbon dioxide and water within just 365 days.

Of course, to this eco-minded fashionista, environmentally friendly fashion had also better look good.  The Sprout watches feature a highly polished case and bracelet with stainless steel fold-over closure, mineral crystal lens, natural mother of pearl dial with eight sparkling diamonds and polished silver tone numbers. The watches come in a rainbow of fun, funky shades (my personal fave is the snowy white, pictured). Casual chic at its best!

Spout watches are also built to last. This company has been in the business of making timepieces for over 50 years. Their valuable knowledge and technical expertise, plus a real passion for the traditions of watch making mean that when your purchase a Sprout watch, you receive a high quality timepiece that you can rely on for years to come.

So where can you buy one of these great watches? Sprout has an easy-to-use store locator or, you can also shop online.

Better yet, win your very own watch from Sprout in your choice of color! The Sprout Watch Giveaway is open to Susan Said What?! readers who are 18+ and is available in the USA only. The odds of winning are dependent upon the number of entries received.

Contest ends at midnight on December 27 and the winner will be notified by email on December 28.

Good Luck!

    I love that they have “freethinking, rebel employees!” And that they have been in business as long fifty years and are on the very cutting edge of the goal of ecological sustainability.
