Ginkgo polypropylene umbrella is 100% recyclable

March 30, 2013

MG_1010

Umbrellas on the market today are theoretically made of recyclable materials such as metal, plastic and wood.
however, they can’t be recycled as they are.
They’d need to be disassembled to be properly disposed of, which means that most of them just end up going to landfill.
A big waste of resources. polyester canopy, as an example, takes up to 1’000 years to biodegrade…

Developed in Italy over the last three years by federico venturi, gianluca savalli and marco righi, the ‘ginkgo’ is an innovative compact umbrella, redesigned from scratch and made entirely out of one recyclable material – polypropylene.
Conceived to be stiff and flexible, the piece is able to absorb random impacts and wind force without breaking or bending.
Using injection molding process, the numberof ‘ginkgo’ components are considerably reduced compared to the traditional umbrella.
The design is made up of just 20 pieces instead of 120 pieces – eliminating the traditional assembling procedure of screws or pivots, as all the couplings are obtained by long lasting and reliable snap-fit joints.
When ginkgo finally reaches the end of its useful life you can just toss it in the recycle bin.
no need to disassemble the components.

For more information on the ‘ginkgo’ umbrella, see the indiegogo campaign site, where the project will seek funding for production.
