Manag­ing waste at mu­sic fes­ti­vals can be a ma­jor chal­lenge! De­sign­ers Wout Kom­mer and Jan Portheine have cre­ated Kar­tent, a 100 per cent re­cy­clable card­board tent. It is eco-friendly and can be eas­ily dis­carded. Each tent is de­signed to host two peo­ple with room for stor­age and has a 3.3-square-me­ter floor plan with a small back win­dow to keep it fresh. It will stay dry dur­ing some rain and will hold strong like a real tent would. Kar­tent part­ners with fes­ti­vals to pre-pitch their tents, mean­ing fes­ti­val-go­ers don’t need to carry the ex­tra weight. At the end of the fes­ti­val, the card­board is taken to a lo­cal re­cy­cling fa­cil­ity.
