American actor, Jason Momoa, known for his roles as Khal Drogo and Aquaman in Game of Thrones and Aquaman, respectively, has shaved his signature beard to promote environmental protection.
Momoa said he shaved his beard for the first time in seven years to bring awareness to the plastic “killing our planet.”
The 39-year-old actor posted a four-minute video on YouTube titled, “Goodbye Drogo… I SHAVED.”
Drogo walked through a pile of plastic ware at the beginning of the video and suggested that more aluminum packaging should replace plastic packaging.
He said, “I hate going to the airport or being on an airplane and getting a water bottle this big (holding his fingers apart with a small distance).
“When it can be an aluminum one. They have aluminum sodas and it’s fully recyclable.”
“Aquaman is trying to do the best he can — for my kids, for your kids, for the world. Clean up the oceans, clean up the land. I love you guys.
“Good bye, Drogo!” Momoa exclaimed as he shaved his beard off for a cause that is to help save the earth.
He also took to Instagram to spread his message and promote the video through his personal account @prideofgypsies.
“I’m SHAVING this beast off, It’s time to make a change.
“A change for the better…for my kids, your kids, the world. Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let’s clean up our oceans our land. Join me on this journey. Let’s make the switch to infinitely recyclable aluminum,” he wrote.
Some of his fans applauded his decision and tagged him their superhero with or without his signature beard.
