About the sunBRELLI The biodegradable sunBRELLI is the brilliant, cool, forward-thinking partner of the greatly successful original BRELLI. Not just a conventional umbrella and not just a sun parasol, this beautiful creation is all of the above. Providing rain protection, wind resistance, and offering 99% UVA/UVB sun protection. It protects you from the cancer-causing and burning sun rays, providing sun-screen protection. The sunBRELLI is made using sustainably harvested, renewable bamboo, organic cotton, and biodegradable biofilm.
A Lighter Footprint The Brelli was designed and built the so that even in landfill environments, a discarded BRELLI will completely biodegrade in less than five years...this is only a tiny fraction of the time it takes for a conventional umbrella to biodegrade; estimates range from 40-80 years for the canopy alone. Formal data isn't available on how long it takes conventional umbrellas with a metal frame to completely biodegrade because they take so many years. The company worked diligently to create and use materials that, during their biodegradation process, release only harmless gases. The gas released by each discarded BRELLI in a conditional landfill can be harvested to generate enough electricity to recoup more than 90% of the energy that was used to create it.
BRELLI is the world's first and only 100% biodegradable umbrella, and the award winning design is based on the traditional parasol. These umbrellas provide strong and durable protection from the rain or sun - they are functional as well as beautiful. Each one comes with an organic cotton carry case.
