If you’re in need of a new umbrella this spring, why not look for an eco-friendly umbrella made of recycled content. I know of a few different brands that make umbrellas out of recycled content and eco-friendly materials such as bamboo and hemp. Some of these umbrellas use recycled aluminum, plastic, nylon and recycled PET (plastic water bottles). I bought my daughter one of the Totes Eco ‘brellas, and it fits nicely in her backpack. You can find the Totes at Target or Totes’ online store.
