Looking for ECO Umbrellas or Parasols?  Go green with us….

We think going green should be easy, accessible, and affordable, and that small steps lead to big change.  We offer a full and extensive range of ECO umbrellas and parasols, together with options for environmentally-friendly packaging and delivery.  We also invest heavily in producing premium durable products with high quality, robust components which are built to last.  Therefore reducing waste and landfill.

Our entire ranges of commercial parasols, branded umbrellas and printed deckchairs all have ECO options, including FSC wood and rPET canopies.  This means that you are guaranteed an environmentally-friendly product aligning to you sustainability commitment.

Here are some of our ECO options:

Branded Parasols FSC Wood approved

FSC Wood

All of our wood parasols are made from sustainable FSC wood.  What does this actually mean?  The wood we use is fully certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to be sourced from responsibly managed, FSC-certified forests. This is to ensure thriving forests for all, forever.

100% RPET

ECO Canopies

All of our printed parasols and corporate umbrellas can comprise of our ECO canopies.  These utilise RECYCLED PET FABRIC which is made from 100% PET bottles and takes these single use plastics out of landfill. PET stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate. To create virgin PET, producers extract crude oil and natural gas from the Earth, then process and heat it to form a molten liquid and mould and solidify it into PET plastic containers. Once used these typically end up in landfill sites as single use plastic. We take these old PET containers and water bottles, process and heat them, spinning them into yarn.

Not only are the canopies fully made from recycled plastic but the production process versus virgin polyester uses 90% less water, 80% less energy and 65% less CO₂. Plus 1kg of rPET ensures 60 wasted water bottles are out of landfill. rPET yarns offer the same performance durability and high strength as virgin polyester.

Once Upon a Time I was a Plastic Bottle label

We offer our ECO Canopy label free of charge to be sewn internally (or externally if you should wish!) within any custom umbrella or personalised parasol.  These are a great way of communicating your commitment to the planet and can share this message to all that use the product.
