How to Act for Eden

What is Act For Eden?

It’s a campaign that everyone can get involved in to make a small difference to your everyday life that will add up to a big impact for Eden’s rivers.

The campaign is being run by Eden Rivers Trust, Registered Charity, Number 1123588


How do I take part?

To take part in the campaign, simply sign up to make a promise to Act for Eden and challenge yourself to stop or reduce the number of times or you use certain products to help clean up Eden’s rivers.


What happens once I make a promise?

Over the next two months you will do your best to keep your promise.

Why two months? Well, it’s long enough to make a change that will last a lifetime, but not too long that it can feel like a real chore. Your actions will also make a decent impact in that time.

What do Eden Rivers Trust do to Act for Eden?

It’s in our DNA. Every day we’re working with farmers, landowners, other organisations, local communities and volunteers to inspire and support them to find ways to improve,  protect and connect with the River Eden, its tributaries and lakes. We provide practical support as well. We do this to ensure that there is clean water for all and that the river and surrounding areas are better places for people and wildlife.

Our website is the place to go to read more about some of our projects and find out how the improvements we make in our small, but very beautiful corner of Cumbria are part of something much bigger – helping to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
