In honor of Earth Day last year, I did a post on some easy ways to live more eco-consciously around the home. Number one was thrifting, which you all know is my favorite way to shop.
I also love supporting eco-friendly companies, and was really excited to hear about Sprout Watches via Hannah and Dus. These two ladies are amazing in their environmental efforts, both work in the environmental field, and live a green lifestyle.
Sprout has eco-chic nailed. Instead of plastic, corn-resin is used to make many of the watches- so they are durable and made from a biodegradable, renewable resource! How cool is that?
One of the watches I chose has a cork band. Cork is a highly sustainable material and harvesting the bark not only doesn’t harm the tree, but actually helps it. Having worked in wine bars for 10 years, I’ve opened thousands of wine bottles and been around a lot of corks. I thought it would be fun to wear some too :)
The packaging is really great and is made with recycled materials. As a graphic designer, I must say I love their logo, typography, and package design!
This Earth Day (April 22nd!) marks the 3 year anniversary of Sprout Watches and they are celebrating with an Eco-Vacation giveaway including a 4-night, 5-day stay at the Viceroy Resort in Snowmass, CO and airfare for 2!
