World famous as Aquaman and for his iconic character Khal Drogo in the epic television series Game of Thrones, actor Jason Momoa recently shaved off his trademark beard. The reason? He wants to raise awareness about the plastic pollution menace and the importance of recycling.
“Goodbye DROGO, AQUAMAN, DECLAN, BABA,” he captioned the Instagram post where he can be seen shearing off his facial hair, in reference to the fictional characters he has portrayed while wearing the now-departed beard.
“I’m SHAVING this beast off, It’s time to make a change,” wrote Momoa. “A change for the better … for my kids, your kids, the world. Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet.”
Momoa says later in the clip that he hates going on an airplane with a small plastic water bottle and that “there’s only one thing that can really help our planet and save our planet, as long as we recycle … that’s aluminum.”
