Earth Day with Earth Mother.

What does Earth really mean to you? Do you care about your planet?
If you do,you probably  already know that today is Earth Day which began being celebrated 40 years ago in the United States. Now it is celebrated in most countries of the world and it's a very special day, that you can celebrate alone or with others, to show your appreciation for mother nature.  

In the April 2010 issue of Vogue, Gisele Bündchen ,the richest supermodel according to Forbes with an estimate $150 million fortune, was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier after the birth of her first child, Benjamin Rein. 

Besides being a model and an actress, Gisele is also an environmental activist and she shows us her greenest side on this month's issue.

Gisele has been an activist engaging many projects such as a project that she started with her family called Projeto Água Limpa to clean up the river near Horizontina.So far 25,000 trees have been replanted in the Amazonian forest with the profits of  a flip-flop collection under Gisele's name with the Brazilian firm Gerdene.

Besides working on making a earth conscious comic book called Gisele and the Green Team, Gisele is working on her desire to develop a line of pure skincare made of all-natural ingredients not tested on animals thoughtfully packed with recycled paper. The name of the line ,which includes a day cream, a night cream, and a mud mask, is Sejaa "to be" in Gisele's first language. The philosophy of the company is "To create products that not only nourish your skin, but your whole mind, body and soul". You can check it online here.

"I wanted to teach girls to love themselves and take care of their bodies. What is the first thing you see every morning? Your face! What do you put every day on your face? Cream! I have made the simplest, purest cream—an everyday cream—but it comes with an affirmation." says Gisele on an article by by Joan Juliet Buck, Vogue Contributing Editor.

What could be a better way than being inspired by what Gisele does to safe our planet? "The first is wake up in the morning and be grateful you are here, alive and healthy. And the second is: Give." says Gisele in April's issue cover story.
