“I was like water wearing away at the stone. Water acts differently than a hammer and chisel, which chip away at something. I was just a constant presence that sooner or later would be heard. Not because I pounded in the message, but because I was always there.”
— Julia Butterfly Hill, in Legacy of Luna
Julia Butterfly Hill, the woman who spent 738 days in a redwood in California to prevent the Pacific Lumber Company from cutting it down, serves as an inspiration to many in the environmental movement. She’s started something called the Circle of Life Foundation. which offers lots of great stuff like, How To mags, links to other organizations, Julia’s blog and info on the 5 R’s: Respect, Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Thank you, Julia for your hard work and inspiration.
