 @BethTerry Sadly I just talked to my friend and he said that while the tent is canvas and the poles are metal the floor is coated in vinyl :-(

 

It was also quite expensive. Probably something you should look for used, if at all.

Beth, I have friends that we camp with every year that have a great canvas tent with metal poles. It's tightly woven so it is waterproof and it has served them well for years. I'll inquire where it came from the next time I see them.

Thanks so much for bringing this up Beth. I think it's something that doesn't get talked about enough when it comes to the environmental movement. In my line of work (a cooperatively owned grocery store that focuses on local and sustainable food) I often see how economic realities affect a family's ability to contribute to a thriving sustainable food community in Chicago. We can't make the progress we need to without addressing these issues.

 

Thanks again.
