Broke umbrella? Don’t worry you can now donate it.
Donate a broken umbrella you say? That’s right. New Yorkers can now drop off their broken umbrellas at a kiosk at Grand Central Station. The broken umbrellas then venture on to a new life as fashionable totes & handbags.
Local Labels has teamed up with designer & founder of Himane, Catherine Edouard-Charlot, to collect those busted up umbrellas and refashion them into bags that fashion-forward New Yorkers will be proud to carry. Not only are the designs hot, they’re durable and waterproof too, made from umbrella fabric that would otherwise have been sent to a landfill.
Recycling what was once trash is eco-couture at it’s finest!
