Celebrate World Environment Day with Gisele by going green for a day?
Nations from all over the celebrate World Environment Day (WED), an annual holiday observed every June 5th. WED was officially launched by the United Nations General Assembly back in 1972. The holiday was created to help raise worldwide awareness of environmental issues, climate change, and the need for what eco-friendly people call positive environmental action. Latin supermodel Gisele Bundchen, originally from Brazil, and wife of celebrity athlete football player Tom Brady is challenging Americans and global citizens to go green for the day. The radiantly beautiful international supermodel, Gisele Bundchen hails from her home country of Brazil.

Luckily for us, she instead decided to become the world-famous supermodel that we know today — and is going green!

In 1996, young and beautiful Gisele moved to NY City to begin her modeling career in the States, debuting at the New York Fashion Week. An angel in her own right, Latin beauty was greatly popularized as one of the Victoria Secret Angels from 2000 to 2007. Today, according to Forbes magazine, Gisele Bundchen is the highest paid, and the first ever billionaire supermodel!
