RE-CYCLING - NATURE'S LOOP
Transforming things and returning them to the cycle is an old idea of nature: organic material decomposes and thus ensures that new things can be created.
This is not quite how it works with the materials we use. But the idea of creating something useful out of something that has been thrown away has been a source of inspiration for us. This is the basis of our idea of the first tent collection made of tent fabrics that are 100% recycled PET bottles, i.e. recycled polyester (rPET).
FIRST PET-BOTTLE, THEN rPET TENT & CO
This recycled material, rPET, is just as good in quality as newly produced polyester - except that it uses 59% fewer resources in production, making it less of a burden on the environment. Saving resources is another motive that drove us.
To turn bottles into tents, the collected plastic is sorted, cleaned, shredded, steam cleaned and processed into granules. This is then reshaped with heat and the resulting threads woven together, a new life begins as fabric for one of our tents or one of our sleeping bags.
With our tents made from old PET bottles, you can....
- work in the garden, in a pop-up home office
- explore the world on foot, on horseback, by bike, by bus & train
- have micro adventures right in front of your door
- enjoy romantic dinners in the middle of nature
- set up base camps for trekking tours
- and so on....
GIVE US YOUR IDEAS - TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE THE WORLD OF CAMPING A LITTLE BETTER!
Do you have any ideas about what other camping products could be made from recycled material? How we can make our products even better, more sustainable and environmentally friendly without affecting the quality?
We are happy to listen to you.
