19:45 ir. Devin Malone – One Nights Tent
TU Delft alumnus & co-founder of a company to provide low-cost, bio-based camping products to music festival campers. Product: a compostable tent made from bio-plastic – a ONE NIGHTS TENT. Users buy it online, get it on-site, and if they want, they just leave it behind and Devin’s company composts it. Devin is talking with two of the biggest European festival organizations to launch the tent in 2014. In subsequent years, they will also provide other camping equipment such as air mattresses, gazebos, and camp furniture. Why camp any other way?
