Ten ways to green your visit to the Eden Project
Want to do your bit for the environment when visiting us at the Eden Project? Here are a few ways you can green your visit.
1. Bring a water bottle
We have some 15 taps around our site, offering free Cornish tap water. Bring a bottle to fill this up, or visit our Shop in the Visitor Centre to buy something you can reuse again and again.
2. Bring a reusable coffee cup
We’re happy to serve your hot drink in your own reusable cup, and offer you a discount too. If you buy one of our bamboo cups here you’ll get a free starter coffee in it! At our Eden Sessions summer gigs, we’ve introduced a reusable cup system, so we’ve got that covered for you.
3. Help us recycle
While you’re here, help us sort your waste into the right places – you’ll see our recycling stations with clear labels on. We’ve even have a separate collection for coffee cups, which are turned into brilliant recycled products. And our food waste gets transformed into compost for our plants.
4. Try a meat-free day
5. Green your travel
6. Charge your electric car while you're here

7. Car share to our events
8. Use your wallet as your weapon
While you’re here, check out the ethical goods on sale in our Shop, from wildflower seeds to eco-cleaning products through to carefully sourced gifts. We’ve an online Shop too, so you can shop with us from home.
9. Recycle your old gardening tools with us
