The Eden Project is set-up to :
'To promote the understanding and responsible management of the vital relationship between plants, people and resources leading to a sustainable future for all'.
The Eden Project was established as one of the landmark Millennium projects in the UK to mark the year 2000 and is structured as an educational charitable trust.
The Eden Project communicates its story in a �Living Theatre of Plants and People� based in a large crater in which nestle two vast greenhouses (Biomes). These house plants, crops and landscapes from the humid tropics and warm temperate regions and act as a backdrop to the temperate landscape, which we call the Outdoor Biome. Eden uses exhibitions, art, storytelling, workshops, lectures and events to put messages across to both the public and formal education groups. The underlying concept presents to the widest possible public audience the need for environmental care through a celebration of what nature gives to us. Eden is demonstrating behavior change on site, holding a mirror to our values and civilisation and encouraging respect for the things that sustain us.
Eden is not for sale, it belongs to everyone. The Trust is unique in that it has deliberately set out to operate in the commercial arena. This is because we believe that only by demonstrating that ethical commerce is viable that we can affect real change in the global businesses that we would like to influence. We started locally with more than 200 suppliers and in our first year of trading put around �150 million of additional revenue into the local economy and have laid the foundations for concerted strategic action among our suppliers to deliver social and environmental benefits such as Waste Neutral.
As part of the Eden Project's sustainability strategy they are tackling resource and waste management.
After reducing and reusing Eden aims to buy in a greater weight of products made from recycled materials
than the weight of materials which are sent off to be recycled and thus become �Waste Neutral�
