This design says to me that recessions truly inspire creativity. Not only does this design incorporate an element of functional upcycling, but the designer is literally cleaning up the streets while crafting a design business. These Upcycled Umbrella Dog Rain Coats are smart and show the world that brand new materials are not always the answer, here is a prime example of functional reuse of a water resistant material that stays true to its function. I can't think of another product or designer who is recreating and redefining a green movement quite like this. These coats are a great example of the limitless possibilities of green product design. www.recyclingzychal.etsy.com

    2. I just love the idea behind this rain coat. People do not think about rain coats when it comes to dogs. This is so good to see. I see this selling a lot. Egypt travel

    2. That dog lured me in, but when I read what this was all about, I'm actually amazed by it. I'll never look at a broken umbrella the same way again.

    2. acreaster, if you go to www.recyclingzychal.etsy.com, you can send her a message and she will tell you how you can send the umbrellas to her, that's what I did.

    2. Where can I send my broken umbrellas to? I have about 5 that for some strange reason I can't seem to get rid of, this is a great way to put them to good use
