Gaiam is the perfect name for our company. A combination of the words “Gaia” and “I am”, it represents the ideal that we are all part of the single, living entity that is Mother Earth – or “Gaia” as the Minoan civilization called her.

In the summer of 2009, we asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter to tell us which composters they think we should carry in Gaiam’s spring 2010 catalog. We took the top eight suggestions and let the community vote on them. The two finalists were then compared in an ongoing video series called the Compost-Off, each of which is shared below.
Here’s one way Gaiam gave back this holiday season: We donated 500 turkeys to the Denver Rescue Mission, helping to provide Thanksgiving meals to the poor and homeless in the Denver area.
“Gaiam has sent an important message to those we serve — that there are many who care,” says Lisette Williams, manager of community events and procurement for the Denver Rescue Mission.
“We’re given one body in this precious life. It needs maintenance; it needs to be empowered,” says Trudie Styler in this video interview with her and husband Sting for the new Trudie Styler workout and healthy lifestyle DVD series by Gaiam. “I doubt that we’d be able to get through as much as we do without a fitness routine. Fitness plays a huge part in daily life for us both.”
