When it comes to watches, the last thing that the majority of us look for would be whether the watch is biodegradable or not. In fact, when it comes to choosing a watch, we typically go for durability and longevity, with some watches that have managed to span several generations, passed down from one generation to the next.

However, some consumers go for watches that are more fashionable rather than durable, and we have to admit that these Sprout watches do look somewhat eye-catching. The kicker is that not only do they look good they are apparently biodegradable as well!

The watch is made from corn resin, a resource that is claimed to be able to replicate the strength of synthetic plastics, yet break down in a compost environment within three years. The diamonds used are supposedly certified conflict-free, the batteries are mercury-free, its cotton straps are organic and highly renewable bamboo is used on the face of the watch. Made from at least 80 percent low-impact, biodegradable, recyclable, or renewable materials, this is one watch that you can buy with a clear conscience.

When it comes to eco-friendly products, a premium price tag can usually be found attached to them, but not this time. In fact these Sprout watches are priced anywhere between $30-$75 and they are available from both Amazon and Nordstrom.
