And throw it away? Where? Into landfill? Onto a country lane? Leave it on a festival field? No, no and no. There isn't a way to live sustainably by buying cheap throwaway products. They don't exist. They cost us all dearly. Don't buy it. It's not worth the true cost. With love

£12.50 for a double skinned - a single skined pop up rubbish would cost you £20..........

Donate to the homeless rather than throw away

thanks for this

100% agreed with makier.

If you go to your local charity shop or look on gumtree, you'll get a good used tent you can use over and over again for about ten or twenty quid.

Think about it - if you go to 8 festival events in the next 5 years, you'll have spent a few hundred pounds on these "disposable" tents. Why not just buy a decent quality one and reuse it? Also, you can lend it to friends and they can use it to.

I picked up a really good eurohike tent in a charity shop for £8 a good few years back and it's been all over the country. Even with all it's years of use, I could still sell it for a tenner and make £2 profit X)

Really dont give to the homeless , I have spent my working life in this field this the the worst solution, a tent becomes a home and a home is what people want so it removes the motivator to help and support people and encourages entrenched homelessness.

next people will be saying its a life style choice, or that British people are not given homes, homelessness is nothing to do with property availability and choice.

Why would you throw it away? Don't be a part of the problem. Yeah it's cheap, but don't just chuck it for the sake of it. I bet you're the kind of muppet who gets coffee in take-away cups just out of preference.

Seems a shame they skinned 2 men to make that.

otoh we all love those winos who set up camp on a roundabout in the middle of a town

there was one in the middle of Wolverhampton when I worked there about 1992, he was famous

I bet they'd be glad of a tent when it rains!

I couldn't agree more: homelessness is nothing to do with property availability and choice.

... and on the way back from work...

Can only the echo the comments about "disposable" tents. As someone that's done a few festivals in my time, the number of people who just dump their tents (and other stuff) is shocking. I was at one last weekend and I was talking to one of the guys afterwards who's job it was to clear the field and there were tents everywhere. They said they usually end up with trucks full of crap as very little is of any quality it could even be donated to charity for use in disasters etc.

On the plus side, he did say he got nearly a full van of abandoned alcohol from Glastonbury.

Seriously? I would have thought a tent could provide vital protection in the winter and I hear about people freezing to death, and the ability to at least part function - which surely helps toward getting off the street? I'm surprised it doesn't encourage the mindset 'this is better than sleeping in a doorway this motivates me to find a proper solution'. Maybe it's not the being tented alone that is the problem. Is this anecdotal or is there material evidence?

Erm, it is a choice.

So you've considered going homeless then?

That's interesting, but it's not normal to think like that.

Anyways - about the tent....any good? Big enoigh for three 11 year olds do you think?

I bought a Tesco four man tent. It's just big enough for two people.

OOS !

I got one from Tesco Extra, Aberdeen, and there were still a couple left.

Great deal OP- it's a tremendous value tent.

- It's pitch-outer first, so you can protect the inner from rain while pitching.
- Weighs about 2450g out of the box, but I can save a few 100g by discarding the porch groundsheet and replacing the pegs
- Will pack down small, e.g. to fit into bike panniers, as the pole segments are only 47cm long
- Flame retardant material
- The mesh door and ceiling vent will provide plenty of ventilation

So that they can camp in the middle of the pavement? The best help one can provide is to help them get off the street not to make it more comfortable there.

Ordered last night (before OOS) along with a few other things. The other things have been dispatched... getting concerned as the tent is yet to be dispatched....

The sort of idiot that pays to go to Glastonbury just to be used as background for the tv coverage is likely to be too stupid to put one of these away.

The 4 man for £15 looked much better value, and more like a real 2 man tent!

I find it shocking that people feel it's ok to just litter festivals for a start but secondly that they'd waste money on a tent for a festival, leave it behind and just buy a new one for the next festival. Completely false economy IMHO.

but they know that Glasto pays poor people to clear up, so they re doing them a good turn

this year's clear up was only 4 days then the cows went back a-grazing

who suffered?

some poor people got cheapo tents, after all
