Yesterday we spotlighted TerraCycle’s products that make use of reused packaging. Today we’ve spotted another interesting upcycling idea from London-based designer Shiu Yuk Yuen (site is Safari unfriendly). She’s proposed the UNbrella which is a compact umbrella that can be used for short distance trips through the rain. It consists of a handle and expanding pole and ribs which you then add newspaper, cardboard, or a plastic bag over the top of. There’s a thumb screw at the top to secure it all together. Carrying around a heavy umbrella can be a pain and this concept is a nice alternative for times when you get caught out in the rain.
