Casio has two more sports watches made from beans, and I’m all for it

Casio has released a few new sports watches made from biomass plastics, which are made with materials such as castor beans and corn. As Casio fan blog G-Central explains, the case, strap and back of the Pro Trek PRW-6611Y-1 and PRW-6621Y-1 are all made from this material rather than conventional petroleum-based plastics.

This isn’t the first time Casio has traded petroleum-based plastics for something greener. In February of this year, the company launched the PRW-61, a solar-powered sports watch using the same materials and completely wrapped in paper. It’s a logical step, and it’s one of the most sensible uses of bioplastics I’ve seen.
