Product design graduate Sue Shiu Yuk Yuen has her eye on the weather. Living in London Sue is familiar with unexpected rain showers and has cleverly designed an environmentally-friendly brolly to cope with such downpours. All you need is your (read) newspaper/ plastic bag or whatever showerproof item is to hand and the eco brolly attachment. It will get you from the tube station to your office or down to the shop to buy milk for elevenses without being soaked to the skin. Sue says it is not designed as a replacement but more as a convenient stopgap that reuses stuff that would otherwise be binned.
“an environmental friendly umbrella that aims to encourage society to take part in recycling, making it fun.
It is a supporting devise for when it rains. All the user has to do is unscrew the top lid, poke the lid onto the middle of a reusable object, re-screw to secure it & open it out like an umbrella! “

With the soggy summer we are having, one of these would sure come in handy. Great product Sue, I hope to see it in the shops soon.
