Some nice things good people have said…

“She has been variously described as “the climate queen” “an expert on misinformation” and “f*cking wild”.

– Russell Brand (um pot calling kettle?!)

“Sarah Wilson is a force of nature – quite literally. She has taken her pain and grief about our sick and troubled world and alchemized it into action, advocacy, adventure, poetry, and true love. She’s a great teacher and a great leader, and I admire her with all my soul.”

– Elizabeth Gilbert, Author of Eat, Pray, Love

“Sarah shows us how possible a better world is if we’re willing to roll up our sleeves and get to work building it. By starting with ourselves, heeding the call to inner work and growth, we can build the future we yearn for.”

– David Pocock, former Australian Wallabies Player

“Sarah Wilson has an uncanny ability to look over the horizon and see where the wold is going. Her “I Quit Sugar” book and ensuring movement was the first large scale solution to help get the sweet menace out of our diet. She is a true pioneer.”

– Dan Buettner, National Geographic Explorer and #1 New York Times Bestselling author of the Blue Zones

“Sarah is full of expert advice while remaining grounded and incredibly human. Her vulnerability is her strength.”
