Tom Brady and Gisele’s kid being the change

Gisele mentioned, “We were at the beach and my son Benny found plastic in the ocean. He was so upset, and I explained to him that this is what happens after we discard things; they go to landfills and sometimes end up in the ocean. For the past couple of years, he decided that he did not want presents from his friends at his birthday party. Instead, he would like if they could donate to organizations that help endangered species.”

As a mother and environment activist, Gisele Bündchen made sure that she educates her kids on the simple 3Rs approach; Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Gisele also mentioned that Tom Brady and the other members aim to restrict their use of paper and plastic. They use a water filter and reusable bottles and decompose organic food waste.
