Earth Day Approaches: What Are Your Six Words?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

By Larry Smith

With Earth Day coming up this Sunday, I wanted to remind everyone to share their Six Words for the Planet, a new Six-Word section from SMITH, a collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency. Share your six words to celebrate the environment, your concerns and talk about what your own “green life” means to you. Your Six-Words for the Planet will be considered for inclusion on the EPA’s own site, as well as for a future book, calendar and more.

Here are a few of my personal favorites (and are not a reflection the opinion of the EPA).

Earth’s the only mother I’ve known.
Trees: hug now or burn later.
The renewed Spring: Nature’s plastic surgeon.
Earth is your mom. Be nice.
North, east, south, west. I’m lost.
Black, white, young, old: all green.
My oil lamp is on standby.
Too bad dinosaurs didn’t leave memoirs.
Listen to echo, nature’s instant replay.
Good planets are hard to find.

Read many more and share your own Six Words for the Planet over in our Six-Word section.
