The main problem seems to be that the tents really are seen as single-use items and have little or no value once used. Quite how these festival-goers resolve that with their moral values I really don't know. Do they really care that little?
It's not just tents. Take the thread on the tea shop bemoaning how valueless bikes have become.
It seems counter intuitive but people have too much money these days. Sure they complain they don't but it's really only houses that make it so.
Remove the cost of housing and the amount of crap people are able to buy is astounding. And not everyone has a mortgage or large rent bills.
A £300 bike is almost impulse for a lot of folk whilst a cheap tent doesn't even register.
