Umbrellas littering the streets of NYC, garbage cans full of them as well.
But I have to say my little vintage 1960's one held up just fine! They were made better, everything was. Now our umbrellas are all made in China because the labor is cheap and those big companies love that!
Throw away society, we have become. All those umbrellas on there way to the landfill along with so many other cheaply made things.
Can we ever change??
