You do realise plastic is a byproduct of petroleum refining; rather it's used as opposed to poured straight into the ground.

Besides, as a use case, we have a similar tent the kids have used in the garden, agrees it ain't a Vango, but then it did not cost the same.

Sorry, but this is mis-information which people will tell themselves as a convenient excuse to consume more and add to the plastic waste that is now all over the earth and oceans. It is only certain types of plastic, made in certain areas that are made from ethene (the byproduct of refining oil). This tent is certainly not made from it.

And, even if this was the case, these plastics can do much more harm in the oceans to wildlife, so it really is not an excuse, we all need to take responsibility and reduce usage of plastics and also re-use where we can.

Sorry,you're wrong.

This tent will be made from polyester, ergo this tent will 99.9% be petroleum based.

Obviously, don't take my word for it.

Incorrect. For starters the poles are made of fibreglass, which will be the majority weight of this item, and there is a good chance the fabric is nylon- to state it is 99.9% petroleum based with no evidence is just incorrect, once again proving your cognitive bias.

Please just consider what you write before you write it...or just continue trying your best to justify purchasing rubbish landfill products, in which case, i hope you don't have children to explain what will be a plastic filled ocean in 20 years time.

"More than 70 million barrels of oil are used to make polyester each year. It is not bio-degradable and will persist in the eco-system even as it eventually breaks apart. In fact, it is believed that synthetic garments are the biggest source of microplastic pollution in the oceans because up to 1900 fibres can be washed off one garment every time it is washed.

Although it is less energy intensive than nylon to produce, it still requires more than double the energy of conventional cotton to produce. The production of polyester uses harmful chemicals, including carcinogens, and if emitted to water and air untreated, can cause significant environmental damage. Most polyester is produced in countries such as China, Indonesia and Bangladesh where environmental regulations are lax, and air and water pollution is often discharged untreated, resulting in significant pollution and harm to communities in the vicinity of (as well as downstream and downwind of) manufacturing plants. The water-intensity of production is much lower than for natural fibres. However, polyester cannot be dyed using low impact and natural dyes. This means that the detrimental impact on water supplies is potentially far greater."

It is very sad when people are perpetuating half-truths that could result in loads more damage to an already suffering planet. Please research and consider your "facts" before sharing them, as others may not be so wise to do so themselves and this sort of mis-information is detrimental to the environment.

So you admit you're wrong lol, quit already, you're looking foolish now.

Polyester is a byproduct of oil refining, end of; unless you recommend the byproducts are just poured into the ground?

Right! Well I bothered to cite my finding from reputable sources so if you want to disagree without any proper arguments, go ahead...but anyway, I am almost certain you are just a good troll to be honest, so i will stop replying now. Good day to you!

You contradict yourself to actually hold any weight or value to the conversation.
