Well, it looks like a circa-1989 Cher got her wish this past weekend which means it’s high time for this year’s edition of ‘Mother Nature meets Father Time,’ an annual roundup of eco-friendly timepieces for the home.
Unlike my 2009 and 2010 installments, the clocks I’ve assembled this time around aren’t exactly as wild in the recycled materials department (no neckties, dishware, or dollar bills here) but I’ve still managed to wrangle up some lookers made from things like recycled juice jugs, bicycle tires, and vinyl records. I’ve also included a couple of high-quality options that may not be made from sustainable materials but are too cool to pass up. And for the battery operated models on this list, which they happen to all be, don't forget to use rechargeables.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I still have a couple more clocks to begrudgingly adjust …
