Actor Jason Momoa has chopped off much of his trademark long hair in order to raise awareness of the impact of single-use plastic.
On Monday, the Dune star took to social media and toasted “new beginnings” by getting his famous locks shaved off. “Aloha, everyone,” he began in the video, before he added, “Hand me those braids”. He then held two long pieces of cut braided hair in front of the camera and said, “I’ve never even felt wind right there!”

“It’s just so sad, so please: anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastic in your lives, help me,” Mr Momoa further continued.

The 43-year-old encouraged his followers to switch to aluminium bottles and canteens, rather than using plastic water bottles. In the caption, he said, “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.”
Since being shared, the video has garnered a lot of attention on social media. The clip has accumulated more than six million views and over 623,000 likes.
