Because your passion for eco-friendly products shouldn’t stop at fashion, Sprout Watches gives you an eco-timepiece to add to your green wardrobe. After 50 years of making watches, E. Gluck Corporation decided to expand their company to make lead- and phthalate-free watches from sustainable materials and Sprout Watches was born. When Sprout Watches began searching for materials to make their watches, corn resin seemed to be a very natural choice — it’s biodegradable, renewable and non-toxic. Though Sprout Watches is known for its biodegradable corn resin watches, they also carry cork, Tvyek®bamboo and even water-resistant models.


Made for women, men and kids, each watch is affordably priced from $30 to $80, so everyone can have a little something eco-friendly in their lives. Sprout Watches makes watch straps from organic cotton and Tyvek, a recyclable fiber that is durable and gives off a great leather look.

When people starting asking for a watch they could enjoy at the pool or beach, Sprout Watches developed an eco-friendly water-resistant watch which comes in several fabulous colors. They make perfect gifts for the swimmer or surfer on your holiday gift list.

Each Sprout Watch is decked out in either a natural Mother of Pearl, bamboo or cork dial. Their Mother of Pearl dials are declared through the U.S. Department of Fish & Wildlife and will never be from forbidden or endangered species. Some watches even come with conflict-free and certified diamonds — hooray for ethical bling!

Sprout Watches are even eco-friendly down to the minor details. Each comes with a mercury-free battery and mineral crystal lens that’s made from sand and can be recycled. The packaging Sprout Watches uses is made up of 80% post-consumer fibers and can be recycled.

Sprout Watches is involved with great organizations for philanthropy such as 1% For The Planet, Riverkeeper and Trees For The Future. We’re teaming up with Sprout Watches to give three lucky Ecouterre readers a watch of their choice! Learn how to enter here.
