With the down pouring of rain that has been happening here for the past few days one of these "Brelli's" definitely would have come in handy. The biodegradable Brelli is made from bamboo (a renewable resource) and features a canopy of clear biodegradable PVC. I tend to forgo an umbrella even in the most torrential downpours because I feel like I can't see and any gust of wind turns them into unusable trash pretty quickly. The Brelli has a wind vent system to allow it to withstand high wind, and I like that the top is clear so you can see when you are walking! According the manufacturer a discarded Brelli will completely biodegrade in less than 5 years, which is a fraction of the time it takes for traditional umbrellas to decompose. Check out the site here, they also make "sunBrellis" and ponchos.
