This woman invented a fully compostable tent for music festivals and beyond

The brainchild of Amanda Campbell, who was an Architectural Studies student at University College London, these structures were the product of Campbell s frustration with the inefficiencies of the current tent situation.

But one year I stayed really late at a festival and saw them all get crumpled down and go to a land fill.

Things like transport will affect that and, at the moment, the only places that make bio plastics using renewable energy are very, very expensive, Campbell says.

But in a few years time it will be more viable.

The tents have yet to be tested at large scale events, which will happen for the first time at festivals this summer.

Ultimately, Campbell notes, these tents could find applications beyond festivals.
