Salt-of-the-Earth Star Daryl Hannah’s Eco-Activism

July 11, 2011

Eco-savvy movie star Daryl Hannah is the real deal when it comes to eco-activism. She became a vegetarian at just 11 years of age and has since been an ardent and active supporter of environmentalism.

Daryl’s life is fueled by her vision of a carbon-neutral world; she drives a car powered by vegetable oil, uses all-natural beauty products, and lives in a solar powered home in the Rocky Mountains. Her home is made of reclaimed wood and fittingly decorated with the least amount of harm to the earth possible. Daryl’s guests sit on a moss-covered stone that she found on the property – she waters the moss to keep it alive!  We’re certain our biodegradable eco cleaning products would blend right in to her earthy dwelling.

But the eco-star’s home and car aren’t the only things that make her an effective eco-warrior. Daryl runs the blog dhlovelife.com, a platform for sharing her love of the earth’s beauty. She tackles important environmental challenges, animal-rights issues, and highlights the people behind these movements. In an interview with Grist.org, Daryl said this about her hopes for her site; “I’d like to be a giant enabler. I’d like to provide information, inspiration, and access to whatever goods and services are needed to make it super easy for everyone to change their lifestyle to a sustainable one. “

Daryl’s fearlessness is evident in her ability to speak her mind while promoting sustainability. At the recent climate change summit in Mexico, the outspoken starlet criticized US Energy Secretary Chu for proposing “nothing concrete” in his keynote address. And she even won over Fox host Bill O’Reilly, who was impressed by her running her vehicle on vegetable oil!

I’m impressed too, and I tip my hat to this salt-of-the-earth star!
