Our project with Earth Lungs focuses specifically on mangroves. Although for team Tentsile UK, mangroves are associated with hot and exotic climes in parts of the world we can only dream of (whilst sipping tea in the grey drizzle that is our little island!), for millions of people around the globe, the importance of mangroves cannot be over-stated. Whether you live in Florida or Kenya, Costa Rica or Madagascar, you will be aware that mangroves are the backbone of many eco-systems the world over.
In the chaos of Black Friday we wanted to remind everyone that you can shop more positively, and how here at Tentsile we invest in worthwhile causes and try to give back where we can. We are an independent, family-owned business who strive to tread more lightly on Earth and encourage everyone else to do the same.
We encourage you all to get out as much as you can and experience the joy of nature as well as spending quality time with friends and family.
Through the NEW #TentsileActivate campaign, we aim to inspire, educate, and most importantly, activate. If you’re ready to get your hands dirty, watch this space. Prepare to see the Tentsile Tribe involved in more ways than ever before…
We are absolutely thrilled to share the incredible news that Tentsile have now reached our target of planting 1 Million trees in 10 years, with our tree planting partners! Protecting and preserving the World’s forests has always been at the very heart of everything we do here at Tentsile. We don’t plant trees so that we can sell more Gear – in fact it’s the exact opposite – we sell tents so that we can plant as many trees as possible. Simple.
This year, from Saturday April 16th to April 24th, there will be events both in person and virtually that people can attend, as well as a chance to visit a National Park for free on the first day!
In 2017, we set ourselves the challenge to plant 1 million trees in five years! Today, we’re delighted to say that we’ve planted an incredible 1,000,000 trees, which means we’re right on track to reach our #BecomeOneOfTheMillion campaign goal. We couldn’t have achieved this without the hard work of our tree planting partners: WeForest, Eden Projects and The Arbor Day Foundation, but perhaps, most importantly, we wouldn’t have risen to this challenge without the support from you, the Tentsile Tribe! So, from the bottom of our hearts thank you!
Tentsile Camp Outs gives us a look at what the future of camping could be. This summer, you’re all invited to get unplugged, get outdoors, and join the worldwide Tentsile Tribe in the trees!
