The Gaia Movement USA, is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. We started in 1999 in Illinois and are currently (2017) operating also in Indiana, Kentucky, and Oregon.
Our mission is to create awareness about the plight of the environment, to educate the public about caring for our planet, humanity and the environment, to run recycling operations and to support environmental projects and programs locally and globally.
Gaia is collecting gently used clothes, shoes and.. other items thus diverting it from the landfills while saving on the resources, reducing greenhouse gasses and providing good clothes for hundreds of thousands of people. Through our green drop off bins we provide a convenient way for people in local communities to drop their unwanted clothes and other items. Through our green bins we constantly make people aware of the need to act environmentally conscious.
Gaia provides free environmental education to schools, colleges and universities. Gaia partners with schools, colleges and universities on different environmental projects and programs. Gaia staff hosts presentations and workshops on the 3 R's, Renewable Energy, and Urban Agriculture. Gaia displays the solar panel, a bio-diesel machine and a row of other innovative clean energy devices to help promote renewable energy at different events in our communities.
