Sprout will exhibit at San Francisco Green Festival Nov. 10-11 (Booth 529) and Los Angeles Green Festival Nov.17-18 ( Booth 645)
SAN FRANCISCO/LOS ANGELES October 24, 2012 Sprout, the brainchild of the creative masterminds at E. Gluck Corporation, a company that, after more than 50 years producing best-selling timepieces, set out to create a line of high-quality, affordable eco-forward watches. With a passion for the traditional art of watch-making, we threw convention aside and looked for the most sustainable materials we could find. From corn resin, conflict-free diamonds, bamboo and cork in our watches to recycled content in our packaging, we focused on materials that are both easy on the planet and naturally beautiful.
Creating something meaningful that we’re passionate about has been our biggest priority, closely followed by contributing and participating in organizations close to our hearts that better the planet and allow us to better ourselves. We are an active member of 1% for the Planet, with one percent of our yearly sales going to environmental organizations, including Surfrider, an organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches. Riverkeeper, New York’s clean water advocate, and Trees for the Future are two additional organizations we strive to educate the public about, contribute to and feel passionate about.
We love participating in various events and fundraisers benefitting sustainable causes and charities each year, as well as showcase our products in events and shows that make a difference. Not only do we love seeing people excited when they receive a new watch – we love their reaction when they realize their newest and coolest accessory is actually made with such unique ingredients and now they’re doing good for the planet, too.
We feel our biggest contribution to the green movement lies in our mission and the philosophy behind what we want to be as a company – simply put, we set out to make the most eco-forward watches available. Combined with our long-standing passion for the traditional art of watch-making and eye for design with an entrepreneurial, freethinking spirit – we strive to be truthful, transparent and to the point. We’ll never be anything less.
