Sustainability | Original Duckhead


Sustainability has been part of our mission since we started creating umbrellas back in 2012.

Here are our guiding principles:

Minimize waste- We are conscious that producing anything new has an impact on the environment. We are continuously working to eliminate waste at every stage of production. 

Design longevity- Designing umbrellas sustainably means designing umbrellas to last. We want every umbrella we make to live a long, productive life so we prioritize quality, ensuring our materials and construction hold up over time and age with character 


  • rPET- We only use recycled fabrics. rPET is a versatile and strong material, created by upcycling post-consumer waste. Each of our umbrellas is made from 9 recycled plastic bottles.
  • Waterproofing- Our umbrellas are waterproofed with an eco-friendly non-toxic AC coating.
  • Biodegradable poly-bags- our polybags are certified 100% biodegradable which means they biodegrade in landfills.
  • All the packaging we use to ship from our factory to our warehouses, to our retail partner and to your homes is fully recyclable.

Production- We have a long-standing partnership with our manufacturer in China, who is committed to ethical and environmentally responsible practices.
