Finally, an eco friendly umbrella at a price point that won't have me terrified to bring it outdoors!
Totes should probably win an award for the many ways they've gone eco in this one product. Not content with a 100% recycled canopy (who knew the umbrella part of the umbrella had a name?), they've also used bamboo for the main handle with 70% recycled plastic hardware, a 70% recycled metal frame, and environmentally friendly packaging. Whew! I guess with that much going on, you'll want to brag with the recycled raindrop logo on the side -- luckily, it's stylish enough that it doesn't cross into greener-than-thou territory.
And thank goodness there are pretty color choices that aren't black! My favorite is the subtle "Leaf Green" color, but the bright blue "Hydrangea" will add some pizzaz overhead no matter what the skies are doing.
