Actress and environmental advocate Daryl Hannah is looking outside of traditional media to connect with an audience that she feels that mainstream media ignoring. She’s using a video blog (Daryl Hannah’s Love Life) and indie documentaries to cover what’s happening in the area of green lifestyles and “extreme activism.”

“The fact that there’s not any really progressive green show on television right now is bizarre. There are a lot of people in the TV industry who are interested in the field, but when I approach them about doing something, everyone’s like, ‘Oh, it’s a niche market.’ Well that’s bull–.”

In an interview in SF Gate’s Green, Hannah talks about why she’s turning to alternative media, her passion for green living and even drinking biodiesel fuel.””It’s kind of gnarly to drink oil,” she said. “But it’s not going to kill you — that’s the point.””People have to know that there are options available to us today,” she said. “There is another way, and it is practical and applicable now.”
