Tentshare making tents affordable and the outdoors accessible with Christmas giveaway

Tentshare has announced another Christmas tent giveaway following the success of their latest campaign. Business owners hope the initiative will make more families or individuals  keen to get outdoors and camp. Anyone who already loves the great outdoors and would like to explore the UK’s natural environment is eligible.

A fun and festive giveaway

Rebecca, founder of Tentshare comments:

“I am passionate about making the outdoors more affordable and accessible to people. The cost of camping and outdoor equipment can be expensive, especially with the cost-of-living crisis and with Christmas looming.”

The lucky people who receive a two-person tent is only asked to enjoy the big outdoors and be willing to make some money by listing the tent on the Tentshare platform. Tentshare is like a tent dating service, matching, unused tents with people who’d like to camp. The
tent owners get to earn a bit of extra money, plus share a tent with someone in their local community. The person who rents the tent gets affordable access to tents and camping equipment.

Sadly, across the UK we are seeing more and more tents being left cold, lonely, and forgotten, stuffed in attics and garages. Through sharing stuff, fewer tents will need to be manufactured, reducing the strain on the planet’s resources. The UK currently plunders three or four times more than the planet can cope with.

It’s estimated that each year in the UK alone, over a million tents are purchased and two hundred and fifty thousand go into landfill. Once a tent is purchased it is often used only once or twice a year, meaning there are millions of tents lying around neglected in attics and garages across the UK, desperate to embark on an adventure. Rebecca explains why she began Tentshare in 2020.

“I founded Tentshare because I was renting my lovely bell tent and thought it was good opportunity for campers and ex-campers to make some extra money out of the tent they already own.”

Rebecca is also passionate about creating a more equal playing field for all; renting an asset that already exists to someone in the local community means that the money stays local.

“Purchasing a tent from a big business is sending our hard-earned money to the fat cats. Plus, when we share, we share our knowledge with each other, including camping tips and tricks This really is a win-win sustainable business!”
