The Environmental Protection Agency, in partnership with SMITH magazine, has launched a new project to highlight creative six-word essays about the environment.
If you aren’t familiar with them, six-word essays are phrases made up of six words that capture a story or an idea in a short creative way.
Some examples of six-word stories from the EPA include:
- Many nations. One planet. Our home.
- Healthier families, cleaner communities, stronger America.
- Breathe; A moment in nature. Breathe!
You can submit your own six word essay for a chance to have it featured on the EPA homepage and social media channels.
We welcome your comments if you are 13 or older, and hope that our conversations here will be polite. You are responsible for the content of your comments.
We do not discriminate against any views, but may delete any of the following:
- violent, obscene, profane, hateful, or racist comments
