Decathlon’s No Tent Left Behind campaign will give full refunds to customers who buy a tent in the MH100 range to stop them being abandoned at music festivals this summer.

Decathlon is offering a full refund for customers who return their Decathlon tent this summer. As a reward for not leaving any tent behind at festivals, Decathlon is guaranteeing a full refund in the form of a gift card to spend in store, even after using it at a festival.

Similar to last year the returned tents will be refurbed and cleaned, with the aim for them to be re-sold through Decathlon’s Second Life programme, which will reduce waste and increase the lifespan of these tents.  

The campaign started on the 6th of June and will run until the 13th September, 10 tents are eligible as part of the Tent Pledge, meaning customers can buy anything from the MH100 range from the XXL 4-person tent to the original MH100 2 person tent 

Steps to take action

Step 1
Purchase a tent from our MH100 range between 6th June 2024 and 13th September 2024.

Step 2
Enjoy the festival, pack your tent away afterwards and bring it all home with you.

Step 3
Return your tent to Decathlon with proof of purchase before 13th September 2024 and you will receive the value of your purchase back as a gift card.

Around 250,000 tents go to landfill after festival season and Decathlon are campaigning to make a dent in that number. Chris Allen, Sustainability Leader at Decathlon UK, had this to say: 

“We’re relaunching the No Tent Left Behind campaign with the biggest Tent Pledge following the success of last year. 100% of the tents returned in 2023 were refurbished and resold through Decathlon’s Secondlife scheme.

We want to make an even bigger impact and encourage our customers to choose sustainable habits whilst they’re enjoying themselves. We continue our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and hope our customers will be inspired to do the same.”

The campaign has also been backed by radio DJ and TV presenter Jo Whiley who had this to say about the No tent Left Behind campaign:

 “Like all music and festival lovers, I’m excited for the fantastic line up of artists I’m going to see during this years festival season.

Decathlon’s ‘No Tent Left Behind’ campaign is a great reminder to festival goers to make sure they enjoy their experience, but in a sustainable way. By doing this you can even make money to shop for your next adventure!’
