It&#39;s a unique genre of writing that focuses on sharing a meaningful story or idea in just six words. The idea of very short stories began before the digital age, but has begun to thrive recently as people share their stories and essays via social networks. The EPA felt that the six-word essay would be a great way to celebrate the environment. The Unites States EPA has launched the Six Words for the Planet project in partnership with <a href="http://www.smithmag.net/">SMITH Magazine</a>.

Most companies spend millions of dollars protecting confidential information. However, when no longer useful, that same information ends up in a dumpster or a recycling bin where it is legally available to anyone. Shredding paper documents is one of the most cost-effective ways to prevent fraud and identity theft.
