Actress Frances Fisher (Titanic, Unforgiven) shares the top environmental documentaries and the reasons she went vegan. She's a staunch environmental activist and a big fan of Bill Nye - who happens to drop by the Begley household. They dig into the secrets behind the enigma code and the human rights violations that Frances witnessed at Standing Rock. You'll also learn about the surprisingly nature-loving town of Serenbe and her tips on how to be inspired instead of overwhelmed by the scope of issues and solutions that we all face today.

LESSONS FROM FRANCES:

  1. We only have one Mother Earth. There is no “Planet B”

  2. Don’t get overwhelmed by how many problems and solutions there are. Find an activity that you enjoy and gives you positive energy.

  3. Sometimes we need to disconnect from technology and just get our hands dirty in nature.

  4. Find out what moves you in your heart. Then find out how you can get involved.

  5. Just take one step. You’ll often find someone else walking with you.
