Kartent Is a Recyclable Cardboard Tent Geared toward Music Festival Goers

From KarTent via Lost at E Minor:

Did you ever attend a multiple-day festival? Did you stay on the festival camp site? Maybe then you know the problem: Every year a lot of stuff is left behind on festival camp sites after a festival has finished. This includes bottles and glasses, but also tents! Actually, to be more specific: 1 out of 4 people leave their tent behind on the various camp sites worldwide! People feel hungover and tired, and don’t feel like breaking up their tent and carry it along. As you can imagine this causes a lot of waste: In the Netherlands alone, where KarTent is based, this counts up to 25.000 tent every year.

Of course this is not all too good for the environment… after only a single use all these tents will go straight to the garbage dump!

This is why we came up with the KarTent, a temporary festival tent made entirely out of cardboard. The cardboard allows for easy recycling of the tent; after the festival, the tent can go directly to the paper recycling industry so that they can re-use your tent to make toilet paper, books, shoe boxes or other romantic things!

Of course, the tent is resistant to water. We use a high-quality cardboard with long woodfibers. The design of the tent ensures that water and humidity is no problem.
