Tentsile is on a mission to help fight deforestation by actually putting people in the trees, not just thinking about them. After all, “if we are all hanging out in trees, they can’t chop them down!”
At Tentsile, we love trees; we respect the World’s forests and inspire others to do the same. We are committed to conserving trees and helping replant deforested regions around the globe.
For every tent purchased we make a donation to plant 20 trees with our partners:
So far, we have supported the planting of over 635,000 trees in projects located across Madagascar, Zambia and Oregon.
Follow our #BecomeOneOfTheMillion campaign and keep up with our progress as we work with each of these organisations to plant 1 Million trees over the next five years.
Paper & Cardboard
We minimise how much we print by creating digital copies of our marketing collateral which we encourage people to use and all our marketing materials are printed on FSC certified paper. This means that an additional four trees are planted for every one tree that has been harvested.
We use unlaminated, brown cardboard boxes to package our products in, making them 100% recyclable.
Shipping & Travel
All of our products are shipped to us via sea freight as it is 100x less polluting than air freight.
As a team whenever we travel overseas, we calculate the carbon footprint for the travel and plant a suitable number of tree to ensure that these journeys are carbon neutral.
We try to make sure that none of our products ever end up in landfill.
When any Tree Tents or Giant Hammocks is returned to us, we inspect to see if it's possible to repair and re-sell under our Pre-Loved scheme.
If it can't be repaired, the tent or hammock is disassembled and the materials are re-purposed into our range of upcycled accessories.
