Did you know that 10,000 million umbrellas end up in the trash bin every year? Most umbrellas are produced in China and are often of very low quality. As a result, they are quickly discarded and create a mountain of waste.
Melanie, the founder of Marypup, stumbled across this problem a few years ago and decided to tackle this waste stream. Since then, she has been giving broken umbrellas a second life in the form of unique rain ponchos, rain trousers and rain coats.
At Marypup in Brussels you will find circular rainwear made from upcycled umbrellas for men, women and children. The rainwear collection of Marypup is also entirely made in Brussels. Read more about the sustainability of the brand Marypup here.
