Here are some of the details discussed:
Tell us how you started The Sustainable Camping Co, what was the moment where you decided this is what you wanted to do?
The dawning point for us was 2 years ago on a very large corporate festival, the pack down was under way and we looked around at a sea of inflatable air beds, discarded plastic bottles, freebees and personal items. The waste filled 8 large 35 yard skips, for one weekend of fun, and we realised that it had to change. We had to try looking at the way we produced the campsites and aid the camper in being more mindful of their own environmental impact. Viva la Cardboard tent.
What do you think makes an excellent glamping experience?
Glamping is predominately for people who do not camp, so we have to think 360 degrees around the outdoor experience for the client, creating a great space providing all of the necessities for camping but with added comfort and the feeling of luxury with those finishing touches to make the whole experience a pleasure. On our Pop up campsites in Sussex we have observed and talked to campers to find out what they wished they’d had; an attractive and breathable tent, with a comfortable (essential) warm bed, soft flooring under foot, plenty of lighting and easy access to toilets for those quick dashes in the middle of the night. We provide all of these things. We set up free chill out spaces dotted about the camps with straw bales, solar charging ports with batteries and air pumps. It is about making life a little easier, a general store for those little luxuries, old school games like campsite tug of war, things to bring you together for shared moments, it is those small interactions that make memories, camping is a very sociable past time and by its very nature forces you to interact with others and nature differently; you have to embrace it and go with it.
What would you say sets The Sustainable Camping Co apart from other providers?
The Cardboard tents, British made bell tents, general store, renewable energy, no plastic, paper cups, all meat free food, use of natural plant based cleaning products and eco toilets and showers.
