The EcoBrolly Is A Recycled Newspaper Parasol

The EcoBrolly is a unique environmentally friendly umbrella that makes use of discarded newspapers. Essentially a disposable umbrella, the EcoBrolly means no wet umbrellas dripping all over you in the office, and encourages recycling.

While newspaper is ideal, the EcoBrolly can become a functioning eco-umbrella in moments with anything from plastic bags, folders, or paper towels.

The EcoBrolly was designed by Shiu Yuk Yuen for central Londonders, where she lives herself. The clever design is a chic sustainability supporting alternative to regular umbrellas, which can't, by the way, be replaced after a particularly windy storm.

Shiu Yuk Yuen has said she was inspired to create the EcoBrolly due to the unpredictability of the weather in Britain.
