Eco Umbrellas

Our fun Earth Week series on eco-friendly wedding ideas continues! Since we are in April, the month of April showers, it's fitting to talk about stylish umbrellas. We've used umbrellas to shade form sun, protect from rain and just to look cute! Now there's a new, eco-friendly option for wedding umbrellas for the bride who wants to be as green as possible.

The biodegradable BRELLI is sustainably made from bamboo, a renewable resource, and features a unique, patented, biodegradable PVC clear canopy. This canopy offers vision, superior protection from the elements, and is a bright and brilliant evolutionary leap forward from the dark and damp alternative. It is the ultimate high-fashion accessory that is still green.

Even in landfill environments, a discarded BRELLI will completely biodegrade in less than five years... this is a tiny fraction of the time it takes for a conventional umbrella to biodegrade. BRELLIs are also made from materials that, during their biodegradation process, release only harmless gases. The gas released by each discarded BRELLI in a conditional landfill can be harvested to generate enough electricity to recoup more than 90% of the energy that was used to create it. Cool, huh?

But if that doesn't convince you, just check out how fab they look!
