In an interview with the Paper on 16th March 2017, when asked the question on who her musical influences are, she said, “Rappers. Tyler, The Creator, Drake, Earl Sweatshirt, A$AP Rocky and Miguel.

I really respect Tyler (The Creator) because he’s a genius musician. I grew up listening to the Beatles, Green Day and Avril Lavigne.”

Billie was raised vegetarian and regularly advocates for veganism on her social media accounts.

Billie explained that she will be partnering with a non-profit organization called ‘Reverb’. They associate with musicians, festivals, and venues to green their concert events.

During her interview on the Jimmy Fallon show, she said, “We’re actually bringing someone from Reverb, this company that basically specializes in the best and most healthy and green ways to do everything”.

Billie then explained that in her concert no plastic straws will be allowed, fans will have to bring their own water bottles, and recycling bins will be available everywhere in the venues of her concert. In every tour venue, there will be a ‘Billie Eilish Eco-Village’ area which will be allotted to the fans where they can learn about climate change and become more environmentally conscious.

On 28th September 2019, the singer was featured as a musical guest on the season premiere of "Saturday Night Live." The show was hosted by Woody Harrelson who is an actor and an environmental activist.

Before Billie’s performance on "SNL," she shared a video on Instagram with Woody in which they talked about the impact on climate change on our earth. One of the environmental organizations that was mentioned in the video was 'Fridays for Future', a movement that was created by climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
