Treehugger, Umbrella Inside Out Competition, Cradle to Cradle, recycling umbrellas [1]

As you probably know by now, our pals at Treehugger have been running a competition called Umbrella Inside Out [2], which asks entrants to do two things: design an umbrella that actually holds up against the storms it’s made for; and design a couture garment from the material leftover from defunct umbrellas. Both designs serve as a vehicle for exploring Cradle to Cradle [3] design principles.


The competition closed on September 1 and they’re on to the voting rounds for the garment design aspect of the competition. Last week, the posse of judges selected five finalists and now they’ve opened it up for you [4] to throw in your $0.02. We’re voting for The Dusty [5] (see above) – a deserving entry whose designer actually took the time to produce a real, wearable piece. Which entry do you prefer?
