Maggie Gyllenhaal“Lifestyle-media” company Gaiam, Inc. has launched a “Go Zero” sustainable shipping program. What does a lifestyle-media company sell, exactly? Anything from organic apparel to yoga DVDs to wind-power units for your home. And now, with their new Go Zero program, you can offset the carbon created by your shipping by purchasing credits with The Conservation Fund. They, in turn, will plant trees on your behalf.

Since June, Gaiam customers have purchased over 10,000 trees, which will reforest 33.5 acres and capture more than 13,000 tons of carbon over their lifetime. The Conservation Fund’s Go Zero program has been adopted by many companies and individuals, including Daryl Hannah, Terrance Howard, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, Minnie Driver and the X Games medal winners.
