About Gaiam History of GaiamFounded in Boulder, Colorado in 1988, Gaiam is a provider of information, goods and services to customers who value the environment, a sustainable economy, healthy lifestyles, alternative healthcare and personal development. Gaiam's Name Gaiam (pronounced guy-um), is a fusion of the words Gaia and I am Gaia, mother Earth, was honored on the Isle of Crete in ancient Greece 5,000 years ago by the Minoan civilization. This civilization valued education, art, science, recreation, and the environment and believed that the Earth was directly connected to its existence and daily life. The concept of Gaia stems from the ancient philosophy that the Earth is a living entity. At Gaiam, they believe that all of the Earth's living matter, air, oceans and land form an interconnected system that can be seen as a single entity.
