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 in carbon dioxide and water within 365 days. This means that if you place your watch in the garden, it will biodegrade. 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.
All Sprout™ watches are in compliance with the CPSIA and are lead and phthalate free. The corn resin in use is in full compliance with the American ASTM D6400 as well as the European EN13432 standards for compostable material.
Sprout™ packaging is made from at least 80% post-consumer fibers. It is both recycled and recyclable. Enclosed in each box is a grass seed card. Follow the instructions and grow a mini grass garden, right on your desk.
