We’re on a quest to give your favorite celeb a fruit basket for supporting green causes. Here’s why you should vote for Gisele Bundchen.
Listen: she’s literally an angel — as her job. As one of the* top-paid supermodels of all time, she makes her three-time Super Bowl-winning husband look like an underachiever. And she doesn’t just use her unreasonably good looks to sell $50 push-up bras — she’s been bringing attention to myriad environmental causes through her work as a United Nations environmental ambassador. As one of the beautiful faces of the Think.Eat.Save campaign, she raised awareness of the worldwide problem of food waste. She’s just joined the Rainforest Alliance Board of Directors, and has joined Al Gore in speaking out on the importance of global sustainable energy. She also stars as leader of The Green Team, a crew of cartoon women who are saving trees in form-fitting outfits.
But Bundchen is also famously devoted to an entirely organic lifestyle for herself and her genetic powerhouse of a family, and anyone who’s been driven to tears at a Whole Foods (just us?) knows that runs into money — so she really needs that fruit basket to feed her children!
Quote: “My kids eat what I eat. The first solid food my son had was papaya and then avocado.”
Correction: While Gisele Bundchen has been the highest paid supermodel in the world for the past 10 years, our staff cannot confirm that she’s the highest paid of all time. This correction is DEFINITELY NOT the result of a physical threat from Naomi Campbell.
