Blonde bombshell Pamela Anderson is adding to her eco-resume. Widely known for her work with PETA and adopting animals, she is now helping to preserve the rainforest.

Anderson most recently announced she is backing Cool Earth, a U.K. charity that focuses on conserving the rainforest and battling deforestation, but she didn’t just stumble upon the organization; she had some help from fashion mogul Vivienne Westwood.

“Vivienne has somehow adopted me (for the cause), it’s fantastic. When Vivienne says something’s important, I listen. When we have tea, I take a notepad. She really knows what she’s talking about,” Anderson revealed to the Times.

Westwood, regarding Cool Earth, said, “Governments . . . are so slow that we can’t wait for them anymore. We have to get this thing moving and hope that they’ll join in. I took as much as I could afford from my company.” She donated $1.6 million to the cause.

Anderson is famous for her past actions, like when she married Tommy Lee and Kid Rock, but she hopes to be taken seriously when it comes to her good deeds. “I don’t know if people take me very seriously. Sometimes I wonder if I am making it worse, or making it better. Am I legitimizing these causes? Or the opposite? Who knows.”

No matter what, the 44-year-old is taking a stand for what she believes in.
