No. Blacks Beach Originals beach tent’s are made from our unique ReCanvas fabric that has no PFAS in it or it’s water resistant coating.
The Crescent provides the maximum rating of UPF 50+ fabric sun protection and shade, as well as great air flow which can make the shaded temperature in the tent up to 15° cooler. Read here to understand the science.
Our eco-friendly beach tents are hand-made in a factory in Taiwan. Taiwan is a self-governed, democratic country ranked first in Asia and fifth globally in terms of net financial assets per capita. We visit (and surprise visit) the factory regularly and can personally verify the working conditions, hours of operation, and safety of production are world-class. We’re proud of our manufacturing partner.
If you mean the beach as a natural ecosystem we would recommend our products as the most eco-friendly option. If you mean for protection from the sun… we’re that tent too!
