Up-Cycling Program


Due to changing in University Partners, this programme below is currently on Pause.

If you have a unit that still has life in it, we advise that you sell to an eager purchaser on our Facebook Community Page.

At Tentsile, we're proud to make quality products that last! But all good things someday come to an end. So, send your end-of-life unit to our Upcycling Partners and get 20% off your next Tentsile purchase!

For customers whose tree tent or hammock has just come to the end of its long life, instead of throwing it in the trash, we have set up a program to allow you to recycle it! We work with University Product Design Departments, where you can send your old tree tent or hammock, so their students can use the materials to make new and exciting products of their own, by up-cycling your old material. Follow the steps below.

How do I know if my Tent or Hammock qualifies for the Up-Cycling Program?

To qualify, your Tent or Hammock will need to have reached the end of its usable life. This is characterised by one or more of the following qualities: 
  • Fraying or ripping of fabrics
  • Broken or breaking seams
  • UV damaged beyond the point of safe use
  • Bleached out colours
  • Brittle fabrics, seams or threads

To avoid your tree tent or hammock going to landfill all you need to do is follow these three simple steps:

Box it

Put your old product in suitable packaging so it can be shipped. You can keep all the straps and ratchets (hardware), as these can’t be recycled. We suggest you put it in a box if you can, even better if you’ve saved the box the product originally came in and can use that.

Ship it

Ship your old product directly to Utah State University using your preferred courier. Please send your parcel to:

Tentsile Recycling Program, Attn: Chase Anderson, 4800 Old Main Hill, Logan, Utah, 84322-4800.

Don’t forget to get a tracking number!

Track it

Send your tracking number (or a photo of your shipping receipt) to support@tentsile.com with the subject line ‘Recycle’ and we will send you a discount code to get 20% off your next Tentsile Tree Tent or Giant Hammock!

This program is currently only open to US based customers. We are working on finding a European partner so watch this space. If you know an organisation which would be interested in working with us to recycle old products please get touch – info@tentsile.com.
