Eden is a charity, running transformational social and environmental projects. So when you buy something from the shop, you're helping to make a difference.

One of our major projects to help fight climate change is the planned geothermal power plant at Eden, which is to produce renewable heat and electricity from deep inside the Cornish granite – to heat our Biomes and feed power into the national grid.
