In case you haven't heard the news, Gaia won the Mashable Award for Best User Experience. This is a huge win for everyone involved-- and that means mostly you, the people who made this happen by voting for us! You can check out the other winners here to see the kind of company we keep as big time internet award winners.
Get out your boots and slap on your rubber gloves-- it's time to go dumpster diving! Gaia's own slightly smelly recycling program, Dumpster Dive, will be returning soon. When you trash items you no longer want, they'll all wind up in a big dumpster for other Gaians to root through. It's a great way for Gaians on a budget build up their wardrobe, or for the well-to-do among us to clear out room in their inventories. Otherwise, those trashed items just pile up in the landfill, providing a breeding ground for giant rats who sew endless quilts out of summer tops and starter polos!
With the new year, Gaia's shopkeepers have made some resolutions for a happier 2011. Almost no one actually keeps their New Year's resolutions, but it's still fun to see people try!
