Looking for sophisticated sustainability? WeWood watches are so earth-friendly they plant one tree for every watch sold.
WeWood wooden timepieces are made from scrap wood and high quality Miyota brand inner components. The unique design results in a watch that's both fashionable and green. Unlike conventional metal watches, WeWoods are warm and smooth against the wrist, allowing their wearers to fully appreciate the aesthetics of all natural materials.
And they don't stop with the warm and fuzzy feelings toward nature. WeWOOD partnered up with American Forests to plant one tree for every watch purchased. Established in 1875, American Forests is the nation’s oldest nonprofit conservation organization, and is recognized as a world leader in environmental restoration.
Let’s count the ways WeWood watches are eco-friendly:
- made from scrap wood material
- contains all natural materials; no plastic
- free of toxic chemicals and hypoallergenic
- a tree is planted for every purchase
If those bullet points don't impress you, maybe their appearance will. WeWood timepieces are available in 7 different color variations for $119. There are also 4 limited edition designs currently on sale for $139. A luxury watch for under $150? Not bad. The watch is feather-light and weighs in at a mere 1.5 ounces. The watch battery is standard and can be replaced at any jewelry or watch shop. WeWood watches can withstand light splashes of water, but should not be worn underwater.
WeWood is setting the bar high for what entitles something to be a “green” product. What if every company vowed to give back to the environment in addition to choosing sustainable materials? Sustainability is more than the state of a product at the point of purchase, but a company philosophy with the potential to make a huge positive impact.
