We don’t have to use umbrellas too often in my area, but when we do the floors in the house and at stores around town are very slippery thanks to all the water. If you live in an area where it rains a lot you will find this concept umbrella stand appealing.
The stand has these long green foam fingers that you slip your umbrella between. Those green foam fingers take the rainwater off your umbrella and use it in a very green way.
At the bottom of the stand is some sort of moss or other green plant. That rainwater captured from your umbrella is used to water the plants. It would be cool if the bowl just collected it for your dog to drink as well.
