In honor of Earth Day, we’re borrowing from our friends over at Earth2Tech in order to celebrate the infrastructure, gadgets and web sites that can help GigaOMers go green. Whether it’s chips that make your servers run cooler or web sites that will help you cut down on energy consumption (no, not Blackle), these topics are not only near and dear to our readers’ hearts, but a geek-friendly shade of green.

Get Your Surf On: These sites can help make the world (and the web) a greener place.

Data Center Dos and Don’ts: From energy management software to low-voltage chips, these stories will turn your scream machines into green machines.

Greener Gadgets: Technology may suck a lot of power, but it’s also helping consumers save it by way of a raft of devices — from cell phones powered by kinetic energy to flat-panel displays that use LEDs to keep things bright without incandescent light.
