||PCT/ES2013/000146||SANTANA ROBAINA, David||SANTANA ROBAINA, David|
The invention especially relates to an inhabitable foldable laminar cover held up by a supporting structure, such as a tent, that can be converted into a bag or a rubbish container, thereby constituting a product with a double use, that of a tent and that of a portable rubbish container, as a result of the morphological characteristics thereof. The invention is also characterised by the ecological properties of the product as it consists of environmentally-friendly materials providing, as is described in one of the uses thereof, a collection and storage point for rubbish in remote places or big agglomerations such as large festivals or hidden camping areas. The unique design characteristics allow the product to be folded up and comfortably transported in the form of a bag. These are the properties that differentiate the product described from the products currently on the market.
