New York: Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has lent her likeness to the AOL Kids web video series "Gisele & the Green Team."

The Brazilian bombshell plays an animated superhero in this eco-friendly show for kids.

"There’s a vital connection between empowering our youth and protecting our planet," the New York Daily News quoted the supermodel as saying.

"With ``Gisele & the Green Team,`` we hope to not only teach young girls about important environmental issues, but support them in building self-confidence and discovering their inner potential," she added.

There are also mini-lessons on the importance of trees and tips for girls on how to stay strong and confident.

A chipper-voiced actress speaks for the supermodel in the show.
