How did you celebrate Earth Day?

I didn't do anything particularly green for earth day. I'm trying to be more environmentally friendly these days - my attempts have certainly lapsed since I moved to the USofA.

I'm thinking of starting a blog/podcast on green tech, particularly profiling my ideas and inventions for green-ness. We'll see how that goes. I'll try to get a few episodes in the can before I launch.

Mrs Sagar and I did buy a Hybrid car this year, to replace our defunct Ford Focus.

I am trying to be more green when I consider my produce purchases, for example, I always shop the organic isle in Safeway and this weekend Ben and I have been to Orchard Supply Hardware and bought tomato, spring/green onion and melon plants in an attempt to grow local!

My next big environmental kick is to convert my water heating to solar. Seems like a no-brainer for a California resident, seeing as we've already had 90degree weather and it's likely to be sunny for the next six months guaranteed. Just need to get some info on the costs and local installers.

The other thing I try to do is reduce the amount of cow I eat, as cow takes a lot of the earth's resources to produce. I'm trying to eat more chicken and pork ... but burgers just taste soooooo good :-p

Go Green y'all!
