SUSTAINABILITY

We constantly strive to reduce our environmental impact, but becoming more sustainable as a business is always going to be a work in progress. We are making our production and office facilities ever more energy-efficient through responsible lighting, heating and travel decisions. We re-use, recycle and up-cycle everything we can, and source eco-labelled cleaning and office supplies.

SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT

All of our tipi poles are sourced from sustainable forests in Northern Sweden, which are carefully managed by the Swedish Forest Board. The timber for our smaller tipis is a by-product of ongoing forest management, where smaller trees are felled to provide space for bigger trees to grow. When our larger poles are harvested, the forests are replanted and the cycle continues.

CANVAS – BUILT TO LAST

We want our tents to last as long as they possibly can - for the benefit of our customers and the environment. To achieve this we apply a long-term perspective to the production of our canvases, minimising our consumption of energy and raw materials. We do this by using the highest quality fabrics that we can find and by offering our customers a repair service.

DISTRIBUTION

Sea and land based transportation of our products is always the first choice for our distribution. The use of air freight is only used as a last resort on very rare occasions.

GIVING BACK 

We are committed to supporting organisations that share our environmental philosophy. As part of this commitment we support:

The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation – Sweden’s largest environmental organisation for the preservation of nature. The organisation spreads knowledge, charts environmental threats, proposes solutions and influences politicians and authorities, both nationally and internationally. Our contribution is divided between three areas of work: climate and energy, seas and fishing, and agriculture.

Vi Agroforestry – A Swedish development organisation that carries out long term work on poverty reduction and agroforestry projects in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania, four countries that have been severely impacted by the effects of climate change. Our contribution to Vi Agroforestry funds the planting of 5,000 trees per year along with ongoing agricultural education projects.
