Thank you for signing up!
Big thanks to EcoTech Daily for hosting last week’s Carnival and keep an eye out for the next installment at La Marguerite on September 21st. For more information and to submit your site for consideration as a host, read this.
After asking you to vote on four composters we selected from your suggestions, the first round of the Gaiam Compost-Off has come to a close and only two composters remain standing. Here are the results:
Orb Composter – 51% Votes
Earthmaker Composter – 29.5% Votes
Green Cone Composter – 15% Votes
Wigwam Composter – 4.5% Votes
If you’re a Gaiam fan on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or are a member of Gaia, you’ll recall that we recently asked for your input on how to make the best compost, best materials to use for composting, and suggestions on your favorite composters. Why, you may ask? Because we want to step up our selection of composting products to make it even better — and we want you to help us pick the next composter we should carry in our catalog.
Inspired by Kate Hanley’s blog post on finding her “Dream Yoga Mat,” yesterday we decided to give six lucky Facebook fans and Twitter followers the chance to win a dream yoga mat of their own. We simply asked them to answer the question, “What is your favorite yoga pose, and why?” We expected great answers, and our friends surprised us with so much more.
Admittedly, this post comes a bit later than fashionable, but I was waiting on photos from our friends of the first tweetup hosted by @Gaiam, @LOHASTed and @elephantjournal at the @happynoodle. After all, what good is a post about a tweetup without pics?
All in all, our first tweetup was an absolute success!
‘Tis the giving season, and just in time for the holidays, we have 25 great gifts for you, and they’re free! However, they’re not just any ordinary gifts — we’re presenting the opportunity to do something special this year by offering the gift of giving to you.
One of the best amenities at our new campus in Louisville, Colo., is the fresh, healthy food served up right here in our much-anticipated on-site Gaiam Café.
The Gaiam Café opened for business in September
Gaiam partnered with Savory Cuisines, a company dedicated to promoting “a choice of lifestyle that is healthy and life enhancing” to create a “Green Cafeteria.” We love the fact that our new café brings farmers’-market-fresh food right to the office using 90% organic and local products.
Over 65 suitcase-sized bags of children’s clothing have been delivered so far to Burmese youngsters in need, thanks to donations by employees here in our Gaiam offices and other clothing drives by organizations like HOPE.
