Cork is an amazing sustainable resource that can be made into many more things than just wine corks, like this cool new Natural Cork Umbrella. This re-imagined umbrella with an elegant wooden handle replaces the typical fabric canopy with eco-friendly cork leather that easily withstands drenching downpours and does not require much maintenance. The certified cork used in the making of this stylish handmade umbrella comes from the thick bark of Cork Oak trees in Portugal. Like shearing wool from a sheep who then re-grow it, this unique tree bark is regularly harvested about every 9 years and the trees tend to live up to 200 years old. Cork is not only a highly renewable material, it's also naturally water-resistant, anti-allergenic, shock- and fire-resistant, mildew-, rot-, and mold-resistant, it repels insects, and even helps to absorb sound. Check out the video below to see how cork is harvested from the trees and made into products.

Natural Cork Umbrella
A couple of days ago we had a pretty big winter storm here in Chicago with a nice ice storm to start it off. My truck was a solid sheet of ice underneath the frozen snow the next morning. It took me literally half an hour of scraping away plus two cans of de-icer before I could barely clear a spot big enough to see out the windshield. I've never seen such stubborn ice before. This will never happen again, because I went online and found the ultimate killer ice scraper, the Heated Ice Scraper! Just charge the cordless scraper and when you're ready, flip the switch. It instantly heats up and melts the ice away. Too bad it doesn't have a brush on the back, but it's definitely a great tool to have in your arsenal against annoying winter snow and ice!
