Tents for China?

Nothing really to do with Spain or my Blog really, but it’s my blog so here goes!

Ive just heard that the Chinese are looking for tents for the victims and those displaced by the earthquake. All the tents that we buy as mountaineers these days seem to be made in ………………. China!!!!

Am I missing something here?

Isn’t the answer to stop making the tents for us in the first place and concentrate all production efforts on the home front? Seems a little silly and a waste of transport money to be sending us requests to return tents that have already once made the journey from China to Europe! 

Bet you can still get (and will get for many months to come) as many tents as you want in the outdoor supply shops though!
