Gaiam Goes Wild For Go Zero
In 2006, as part of efforts to improve the environment, build sustainable economies and promote healthy lifestyles, Gaiam: an eco-healthy lifestyle company and the Fund, launched the world’s first sustainable shipping program. The ground-breaking initiative has given Gaiam’s online customers the opportunity to add a small donation at checkout that goes directly to The Conservation Fund’s Go Zero® program.
Already, Gaiam and its customers have helped the Fund plant 120,000 trees across six national wildlife refuges. As the trees grow into healthy forests, they are expected to trap nearly 100,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
