2. Rosario DawsonNot only is Rosario Dawson a multi-talented star, the green entrepreneur is the founder of Studio 189, a brand that uses fashion to implement social change and eco-friendly practices.


3. Gisele BündchenGisele Bündchen is a devoted member to the tree-hugging club and even runs a green business (Ipanema) that makes sandals and flip-flops out of 100 percent recycled material.

Forests are vital to life on Earth. They purify the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, offer a home to much of the world’s diverse array of plants and animals. And even doing all those things and much more for us, it is being destroyed at a rate of 48 football fields per minute. Awareness is the first step to really making a change. I support #HUGATREE #lovenature @world_wildlife 🌳🌳🌳 As florestas são vitais para a vida na terra. Elas purificam o ar que respiramos, filtram a água que bebemos, oferecem um lar para grande parte das plantas e animais. E mesmo fazendo tudo isso e muito mais para nós, elas estão sendo destruídas a uma taxa de 48 campos de futebol por minuto. A consciência é o primeiro passo para a mudança. Eu apoio #hugatree #amoanatureza
