In the 4th and final installation of August’s Month of Mondays Giveaway contests, we’ve got time on our side. Time pieces, that is, from eco-friendly Sprout Watches.
When you think about vegan products, you might not think much about watches. Sure, lots of watches on the market have leather straps, but there are tons of canvas, plastic, and faux leather options to choose from as well. Many of them are vegan, but how environmentally friendly are they? Sprout Watches steps it up several notches by making a ton of wristwatches that are not simply cruelty-free for animals, but also seek to go easy on Mother Earth as well.

This week, history was made. A 100% vegan label showed at New York Fashion Week for the first time. Vaute Couture, created by vegan and long-time animal lover Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, launched in 2008. With a line of stunning high-end winter coats, Vaute Couture was an instant game changer. No more hemp or flimsy eco-unfriendly poly blends. These coats are made from super warm, waterproof, environmentally sound, and of course 100% vegan materials.
