Love Your Inner Green Backcountry Camper With A Recycled Tent

Posted By G Monkie On December 12, 2009 @ 10:00 pm In Traveling & Cool Stuff To Do | 6 Comments

How green can you be if every time you head out to the backcountry for some hiking and camping you take along some normal nylon tent. Isn’t that what your thinking? I know it’s so sad. How dare you use a tent made from some thin nylon fabric. Don’t worry, you can feel better about your self by spending $350 on the Salt Creek 2, recycled tent. A winter cabin for two, you can haul in on your back. It weights just 6.4 pounds and takes less than 2 minute to fully assemble. It’s white because they also skipped dyeing it with toxic colors.

I actually do think this is a pretty cool tent with a very modern black and white color scheme. If you want to make your inner green camper happy for the holidays, buy them this cool tent and kick them out the door for a week and don’t let them back in. That is true love. You can buy the tent online at bigagnes.com
