To express his stance to the usage of single-use plastics, Jason Momoa has cut off his characteristic hair.
In a video message to his followers urging them to avoid using plastic water bottles and utensils due to the harm they have caused to the environment, the Aquaman 2 star shaved his head and posted it to Instagram.
“Aloha everyone,” he said. “Hand me those braids, so, I’m shaving off the hair. Doing it for single-use plastics. I’m tired of these plastic bottles, we gotta stop, plastic forks all that shit, it just goes into our land, goes into our ocean.”
He continued, “I’m here in Hawaii right now, I’m just seeing things in our ocean it’s just so sad. So please, anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastics in your lives, help me. Plastic bottles are ridiculous. Bring your canteen or now everyone’s making the aluminum which is fantastic.”
Momoa added in the caption, “Heres to new beginnings let’s spread the aloha. be better at protecting our land and oceans. we need to cut single use plastics out of our lives and out of our seas. plastic bottles, plastic bags ,packaging, utensils all of it. let’s aloha our ‘āina together aloha j.”
The See actor has long been a passionate advocate for legislation to address climate change. Momoa even addressed the UN in 2019 to implore world leaders to take the threat posed by climate change seriously.
“We’ve been half assing our global efforts to reverse the climate crisis and this can’t continue. We have to change now,” he said at the time. “For the future of our planet, and Small Island Developing States, the wave of change is coming. Aloha J.”
