Mr. Pitt will not be paid and 100% of the profits from the sale of the product will go to JPF Eco Systems, a green charity that Pitt created with Kiehl’s.  I hope this is a successful collaboration so that other celebrities take notice and join the “green” team.  Let’s face it – consumers love celebrities.  It appears – at least to me – that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are genuine in their efforts to make our world a better place.   by Patti Knight
