Wayne is currently the spokesmodel for One Can — a non-profit that encourages people to donate their recyclables directly to the homeless and/or their favorite green charities. As of June, over 364,000 cans and bottles have been donated to the cause. According to her bio, Wayne “is an avid user of natural skin care products – supports organic farming, natural fuel research and alternative medicine practices.” What’s not to love?

She is also building up her network of Hollywood A-listers to help support various causes. We’ve seen her in attendance at events for Operation Smile, Global Green USA, The Hope Foundation, and Live Earth. In an email to Ecorazzi, she commented that at the recent 11th Hour premiere, she even had a conversation with DiCaprio. Talk about mingling with the right people!

We wish Pleasant all the luck and will definitely be writing more about her in the future. Keep you eyes on this woman, folks — she’ll be green force to be reckoned with the coming years.
