Climate change and the conservation of our planet is one of the most important issues facing us today. A group of designers and themers have tried to find a way of contributing their own part. How though could a website about desktop customization help to combat global warming?

A mentionable majoritiy of co2 emission is produced by industry. Private households also add significantly to the problem by using multiple fridges, televisions, cars and - last but not least - personal computers. So what can we do to support the movement? With this project, we want to raise awareness for the issue and remind users of nature and its beauty. To remind you of shutting down your computer at night if it's not in use. To turn your gadgets off instead of having them on standby.

With this voluminous release of skins for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux we want to bring attention to the topic in the community and hope to make you think more about the issue and your own ecological footprint.

We hope this project will reach a lot of people. If you want to help us by writing an article, blog entry or a interview feel free to contact us!

Definite resolution problem
and what gaia is isn't clear as it should be

I think its a great project (and great looking) but at the moment there's so much more you can do with it

What kind of resolution problem do you have?

And I am open for any kind of feedback how to make Gaia more interesting and how to carry the message in an easy way.

Well I love the clean look gaia has :)

But when I first heard of gaia I had no idea what it was. The description is a bit too vague and brief.

the what is this tab is too small and most people would quickly click on the join us button

when I visit the site, part of the page is cut off, any idea why :?

that's my main issue

*don't take any of this in a bad way

To add to resolution problem, site is clipped from left side at 1024*768. Looks great though.
