Does Anyone Hug the Tree Huggers?


That title was one of the many great TreeHugger-worthy entries to The Green Life, our six-word memoir contest in conjunction with SMITH Magazine. Now, in honor of Earth Day, we're unveiling the top entries from the contest. The grand prize winner--and recipient of an iPod nano etched with the winning memoir? "Saw the light, turned it off" by KayR. "Brilliant! I read my porn online now," by Marcus Eder, was snarky enough to capture second place. Eder can take a break from the hot online action to watch his new prize, a set of Planet Earth DVDs. Check out the four runners-up and honoroable mentions, or submit your own green six-worder after the break.The Green Life Six-Word Memoirs Runners-Up
