Sprout Watches Sprout Grass

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

For budding gardeners or people who just need a cute watch, check out Sprout watches, $30 each, at Amazon. The multi-color timepieces take us back to childhood, when anyone who was anyone on the elementary school playground sported a Flik-Flak. The Sprouts are made of natural bamboo dials, organic cotton wrist straps, and powered by mercury-free batteries. Best part? The packaging is made of 80% recycled materials and can be repurposed for a mini-desk garden—each watch comes complete with a packet of grass-seeds for desktop growing! [Amazon]
