We like concept products around here and when they serve a useful purpose and does something green at the same time, we get all excited. A new umbrella stand concept has turned up that dries your umbrella to prevent slippery wet messes and then actually uses the water.
The concept has these long green sponge strips that look like really big blades of grass. You cram your umbrella into the sponge strips and they soak up the rainwater.
The water then filters down to the bottom of the tall foam strips where thirsty green plants wait to drink it up. The same designers also have a stand that looks like a pencil you cram your umbrella in that dries it off with sponge cloth.
