What is Up-cycling?
Up-cycling goes farther than Recycling because isn’t just converting old materials into useable objects, it’s the road to converting them into a better quality product by transforming them into something that is useful, functional and beautiful.
Amor Umbrella is rooted in environmental consciousness and would like to launch an Umbrella Donation program that will allow us to Recycle/ Up-cycle Umbrellas and incorporate the material into the production of our Special Limited Edition of Umbrella Unique Designs.
You can be part of the Solution by giving these Umbrella Donations for reuse or recycling/ Upcycling instead of throwing them away.
As part of the program, our donors will also be able to share their legacy by submitting a short biography of their effort to GO GREEN and to Recycle/ Up-cycling, to be posted on our website and newsletter.
All umbrella donors will also receive 10% OFF their next Limited Edition Recycle/ UPcycleAmor Umbrella purchase!
The only Umbrellas that you should NOT donate are items that are wet, mildewed, or contaminated with hazardous material.
STEPS TO FOLLOW
You assemble the umbrellas that you do not longer want or need and send them to us with a Prepaid Shipping label.
We will sort them and cut out patterns with the help of our local veteran friendly partners.
We will cut surplus materials and send it to our manufacturer partners that will sewn our designs.
Once the finished limited design are sold, 2% of profits are DONATED to a Social Cause Nonprofit Charity Organization.
Any leftover Umbrellas Surplus will be Donated to Goodwill where they will be converted into industrial wiping rags, sound proofing, insulation, etc
