Make a choice that is 5 pounds CO2 less
We evaluate each step of our supply chain to understand and minimise our total CO2 footprint, and the best place to start is in transport.
By reducing the weight of our product and the distance it must travel, we cut our emissions by 92%.
Manufacturing a 6.6-pound product here in Denmark means transport to you creates 5 pounds less CO2 than transporting nearly 70 pounds of granite 12,900 miles from China.
Help save more than 61,000 pounds of CO2 this year

Baser the most sustainable choice of umbrellas and umbrella stands
We began as a family business and rooted on those values we strive to become the worlds most sustainable choice of patio umbrellas and patio umbrella base – it is ambitious but with your help we know we can get there. From materials to where we produce or how we delivery to you we consider the effect on our planet earth.
Made in Denmark
Baser have from the very start chosen to manufacture in Denmark instead of the far east – this have given us more control but also saved 27,854 kg CO2 in transport as we don’t transport 50 kg granite patio umbrella bases 20.000 km from China to Europe/USA. Our production in Denmark is 100% windpowered and our fabric supplier in Spain who makes our durable ourdoor fabric for our sandbags uses energy from 100% renewable sources (30% of that is from their own soloar panals)
Materials have a huge impact in how sustainable a product is we therefore from the start made the choice to produce our patio umbrella and patio umbrella base in recycled ocean plastics and industrial waste – this means that when you have a Baser patio umbrella base on your patio you have been part of transforming 2 kg of industrial waste and ocean plastic into a new product.
We produce our products so they last for years, however, nothing in this world will last forever and for that reason we made our products so they can be 100% recycled and reused either in our production or at your local recycling station. Our recycling portal lets you send your used Baser patio umbrella base or patio umbrella back to us, we then recycle and reuse it in our production and makes sure we reuse our materials on and on.
