I don’t do the media because of ‘Woo-woo, Julia Butterfly,’ as I call it. I’m not into promoting me. I’m into talking about why I’ve done what I’ve done, why I continue to do this work and why other people should care.
I don’t endorse products, only actions and beliefs.
I’m a poster child for Luddites. It was a challenge for me to open myself up the tech world.
I don’t really watch movies. I don’t own a TV.
For me, love is not about froufrou New Age-ism. It’s about a way of living and honoring the interconnectedness of life and accepting our responsibility and our power to change the world for the better.
I have been stubborn and getting into trouble since I was 2, but I learned how to redirect that into good causes.
I think really what needs to happen is the people of the United States need to stand up and say, ‘Oil is an energy model from the past. It doesn’t work for the planet, it doesn’t work for the people, it never has and it never will.’
