Festival fan creates the world’s first fully compostable tent

As festival season gets into full swing, there’s nothing more depressing than the sight of thousands tents abandoned when the revellers have gone home.

Most of them end up in landfill but a 24-year-old British entrepreneur has come up with an idea to tackle the problem. Festival veteran Amanda Campbell, from Kingston, has developed what is thought to be the world’s first fully compostable tent, potentially saving festival organisers millions in clear up costs as well as protecting the environment.

Comp-a-Tent is made from plant-based materials as opposed to non-renewable resources.

UCL graduate Amanda said: “The tent will decompose in 120 days but is as comfortable, strong, waterproof and lightweight as tents used currently at festivals.” She hopes to work with festivals to launch Comp-a-Tent to the public next summer.
