Paper, cardboard, and plastic waste can now be given a second life as rain protection.

Shiu Yuk Yuen is a product designer based in London and has come up with an eco-friendly umbrella that can be used over and over again. The Eco Brolly is simply a handle where users can clip a sheet of newspaper, cardboard, or plastic to form a functional umbrella.

Considering the amount of broken umbrellas that get discarded, Yuen’s clever design could see paper and plastic waste material given a second life. Although for heavy rain and storms, you’re still probably better off with a larger, more durable umbrella.
