Still shopping frantically for Christmas gifts? The Eden Project has just launched a brand new website; www.edenprojectshop.com. Everything on the site is made using recycled and refused materials and many are sourced locally to reduce the overall carbon footprint. I like the organic coffee gift bag which comes with your own coffee tree! It helps:
• Support the local farmers and their traditional forested farms
• Provide a haven for threatened wildlife
• Reduce the need for sprays
• Reduce problems with soil erosion
• Raise the quality of life for the growers
It contains a bag of Eden Ground El Salvador Coffee, an Eden Project Coffee Mug and a Coffea Arabica Plant and comes in a jute bag.
There are more ideas for kids present too: check out
- the Solar Insect Theatre
- and George Saves the World by Lunchtime, a book that teaches kids ages 4+ about the environment and the benefits of recycling.
Whichever gift you choose this Christmas you can be sure that you are doing the right thing as all the profit go back into the Eden Project.
