Sustainability at Eden
Sustainability underpins everything we do at Eden. 'Sustain-ability' basically means 'the ability to carry on'. To do that we all need to live with the grain of nature, within its natural cycles and not beyond its boundaries.
Here at Eden you can explore how the natural world sustains us and how all life is interconnected in a vast web. You'll also see how Eden works with nature in diverse ways, including reducing energy use, making soil from recycled waste, buying locally, driving electric vehicles and supporting responsible global trade.
What we do to the Earth we do to ourselves – let's treasure and support a world we want to live in.
“[Eden is] the place that made us reevaluate our lifestyle; educated our kids to recycle, upcycle, repair, and reuse; and helped us understand how wonderful and fragile our world is.”
