Daryl Hannah - Eco Nerd

Daryl Hannah is passionate about the environment.
Daryl Hannah divides her time between California and Colorado, and in both places she lives "off the grid", with her own sources of water and power. Her homes are powered by solar panels, her toilets are compost, her cars run on leftover grease from fast-food restaurants. One of them a Chevrolet El Camino pick-up painted a Batman-esque matt black has become something of a signature. She grows her own food and brings what she can't eat to a farmers' market; she keeps bees and makes honey, she knits, she sells teepees on her website. She gets excited about battery storage and new designs for low-profile wind turbines ("I'm a little bit of a nerd," she admits). She wears recycled necklaces made of boiled-down shotgun casings. She has more than 20 animals - horses, alpacas, chickens, dogs, cows - all of which are rescues.
