Six Words for the Planet

Earth Day approaches on April 22 and I wanted to share some of the Six Words for the Planet that have been coming in since we launched a new Six-Word section on (a collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency). And I also invite you to share your six words that 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 site, a video we're putting together, 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 on SMITH Magazine's Six Words for the Planet.
