There's a new face at the Rainforest Alliance, and it's not an endangered frog or an oversize snake. Gisele Bündchen, the highest-paid supermodel in the world, has joined the organization's board of directors. "I have long admired the work of the Rainforest Alliance and its positive impact on the environment," the beautiful one said in a statement. "Its mission aligns with my own long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship."
In her role, Gisele (described as an 'earth mother' by her interior designer) will help guide the Rainforest Alliance's plans and policies in relation to global sustainability. In the meantime, she's been keeping herself busy with a massive new Pantene contract and the construction of a new mansion in Boston.
