Eco-Chic: Recycled Plastic Umbrellas
By Olivia Zaleski
Isnt it wonderful how many of lifes random necessities now come in green versions? The list of recycled products seems to get bigger by the day.
Take for example, Radleys Recycled Umbrella.
Yes, this pretty polka-dot umbrella is more than just arm candy. Its eco-innovation at its best. Made from recycled plastic bottles, the fabric is also 100% recyclable. Read: if it breaks, tears or loses its luster you can just throw it in the recycle bin. It will soon be reincarnated to another glorious product . . . perhaps a tote bag, a food containers or maybe even a bicycle.
But fear not for this brellis lifespan. The brainchild of much-loved English luxury company Radley, the Eco-Brella is sure to stand up to even the harshest of hailstorms. Clearly, the English know their stuff when it comes to staying dry they did invent Wellies and the Barber Jacket, you know!
