Earth Week Celebration Day 2 Review/Giveaway Sprout Eco-Friendly Watches

Welcome to day 2 of my Earth Week event. I know it is a week late but we had some major life changing decisions to make last week and it was super stressful. I won't get into what happened right now however I will share with you when the time is right. Don't worry we are all fine and will be! Now on to today's business!

I was so excited when I had the opportunity to review Sprout Eco-friendly watches, they are so very cute and very economical as well. Sprout Watches are made by the E. Gluck Corporation who have been a major force in the watch industry for over 50 years! I was so excited when my watch arrived! The packaging was so cute! It looked like a box of crackers or cereal with the ingredients on the side! Also in the box was a little grass garden, my 6 year old got a kick out of that and we will be growing it soon.





Here are Sprout watches Eco-Facts from their web site:

-EcoFriendliness
The small size Sprout® watch is 80% Eco-friendly (by weight)
The large size Sprout® watch is 86% Eco-friendly (by weight)

-Compliance
All Sprout® watches are in compliance with the CPSIA and are lead and phthalate free.
The corn resin we use is in full compliance with the American ASTM D6400 as well as the European EN13432 standards for
compostable material.

-Materials
Corn Resin. The shelf life of corn resin is similar to synthetic plastics. It will not break down during regular wear and use. In a composite environment, corn resin is 99% biodegradable to carbon dioxide and water within 365 days. Since it’s made from corn, it comes from a renewable resource. Conventional plastics use an estimated 200,000 barrels of oil a day in the United States alone but because corn resin is bio-based, it therefore uses no oil resources in production

-Organic Cotton

The majority of cotton is grown with toxic chemicals. Conventional cotton requires the use of enormous amounts of pesticides - 25% of all insecticides and 10% of all pesticides - which have a huge environmental impact. It is one of the most environmentally damaging crops to grow, as about 84 million pounds of pesticides are sprayed on US cotton crops alone in one year. Some of these chemicals are considered to be the most toxic chemicals in the world. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment and is grown without the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.

-Bamboo
Bamboo is considered Eco-friendly based on its properties as 1) a natural (nonsynthetic) fiber, 2) a quick-growth plant (it's in the grass family) that sequesters greenhouse gases, and 3) a renewable plant that can grow back after its three to five year harvesting period. It largely doesn't need chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers to grow.

-Mineral Crystal
Most lenses in the medium price range of watches are made from plexiglass, a type of synthetic plastic. Sprout® lenses are made from Mineral crystal which is a type of glass made from sand. It can technically be recycled.

-Mercury Free Battery
Mercury is actually a neurotoxin, which is harmful to both animals and humans. Exposure to even small amounts of mercury over a long period may cause negative health effects including damage to the brain, kidney, lungs and a developing baby. Sprout® watches use only Mercury Free batteries.

-Recycled Fibers
Sprout® packaging is made from at least 80% post consumer fibers. It is both recycled and recyclable
