Hanging Camping Lantern
Product Eco Rating
The outer part of this hanging camping lantern has some good things going for it in regards to sustainability, which helps to make it somewhat more of an eco-friendly choice than the majority of lanterns on the market that are mostly made of plastic.
Stamped Steel is used for the top part of the lantern. Steel is considered environmentally friendly, mainly due to its durability and ability to be infinitely recycled.
As this lantern can be recharged with a USB cord, it does have the potential to be charged by Solar or other forms of green energy.
Other than the Steel part at the top and the hook/carabiner, most of the rest of the lantern is plastic, rubber and being a light, electrical components. This reduces this products overall eco rating significantly and an additional penalty of -1 has been taken off the overall score.
