She has become one of the most influential sustainability advocates, reaching millions with her message. She has inspired countless individuals to become more informed and pro-active about the natural world and the part we all play in protecting it.
She has produced, hosted and shot numerous green TV appearances including pieces for CNN International and Good Morning America. Hannah has become an outspoken advocate for ethical and environmentally sustainable lifestyles on news programs in both the progressive and the conservative media.
