Do you remember not all that long ago when everyone was crazy about bio fuels? In theory, it’s a great idea because they’re cheaper, sustainable and much better for the planet. But unless you want to expend all that effort (time, money or both) and make your whip smell like a Chinese restaurant, it’s just that – theoretical. That doesn’t mean that products bio fuels are derived from can’t be useful for things other than eating. Take corn for instance. The people at Sprout Watches have managed to turn corn resin into a case, case back, buckle, bezel, dial and an adjustable bracelet. Yeah, you read that right—corn. Available in almost every color imaginable (the ubiquitous black to bright orange), they come with matching resin bracelets or organic cotton bands. Sustainability has never looked this good.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
