Ref: “Glastonbury organisers overwhelmed when 15,000 tents were left standing”, The London Paper 5th July 2007

Would you want to carry home a wet and muddy tent?

With 15,000 tents left standing at Glastonbury this year, the issue of waste is a major concern for festival organisers. Although campaigns have tried to solve the issue, so many tents being left behind can be a logistical nightmare.

Thankfully in 2008, Myhab www.myhab launches the first recyclable festival habitat. Created and founded by James Dunlop, 23, a myhab is an eco-friendly tent made from recyclable materials. Rent a myhab and get the full service – they’re pitched and ready for you to use and then taken away for you after the bands and the crowds have gone home.

Having identified the problem in 2005, when his research showed that even then, 10,000 tents were abandoned, James was inspired to design an eco-alternative to the traditional plastic tents. James won the annual New Designers Award and later financial backing from MINT in a Dragon’s Den style situation.

With myhab, James will give the festival goers and organisers the option to go green without the hassle:

“When I spoke to waste managers at festivals, they said that their biggest problem was the number of tents that are discarded. That’s a big part of the post-festival clear up. If I can help minimise the waste and give people a hassle free camping experience then myhab’s done its job.”
