Earlier this week Mrs. Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, took off her runway heels to plant trees in Sao Paolo, Brazil with a group of children.

Bündchen, 31, went back to her home country to celebrate the launch of ‘Gisele and the Green Team’on Cartoon Network Brazil.In addition, the model attended an event at the Center of Forest Experiment of the SOS Atlantic Forest Foundation, which aims to promote the conservation of biological and cultural diversity of the Atlantic Forest Biome.

She gathered with more than 80 children between the ages of 8 and 11 to help plant trees and educated the kids about the environment. This wasn’t just the regular planting of trees, but a symbolic act, as seeds were planted at the same place where more than 10 thousand trees will be planted throughout the year.

Bündchen reached out to show how kids can make a difference, along with educating them about nature. She also set the example of how kids can better the environment for future generations.

The partnership between Bündchen and Cartoon Network Brazil supports the Forests of the Future Project.
