Jason Momoa has embarked on “new beginnings” to help the environment.
The dune actor posted a video on his Instagram account this week, in which he is shown getting his long head of hair shaved.
“Aww man, I’ve never even felt the wind right there,” he said while touching the side of his head.
Momoa also shows off his cut braids and explains he cut his hair to bring awareness to single-use plastics.

“I’m tired of using plastic bottles, we gotta stop,” he said in the video. “Plastic forks, all that s–t goes into our land, goes into our ocean. I’m here in Hawaii right now and just seeing things in our ocean, it’s just so sad.”
He also implored his followers to help him eliminate single-use plastics, saying “plastic bottles are ridiculous”.
“Heres to new beginnings let’s spread the aloha,” the caption on his video reads. “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.”

In 2019, Momoa explained he needed to keep his long hair for professional reasons.
“I am going to be playing this guy for a while and I don’t want to wear a wig,” he said, referring to his role in the Aquaman sequel. “I think we are good for the next two years.”
That same year, the actor also caused a stir when he shaved his beard – this was the first time he did so since 2012. This transformation was also down to his desire to highlight the dangers of single-use plastics.

“Goodbye Drogo, Aquaman, Declan, [and] Baba!” Momoa wrote, referencing the bearded characters he has played in game of Thrones, Aquaman, frontier and his Apple TV+ series see.
“I just want to do this to bring awareness because plastics are killing our planet and I think we have a solution,” he said at the time. “I don’t want to b—h about it [but] there’s only one thing that will really help our planet and save our planet — as long as we recycle — and that’s aluminum.”
“About 75 per cent of all aluminum that’s ever been used is still in use today,” Momoa said. “And it’s 100 per cent recyclable. You drink the can and in about 60 days, it’ll be back. 100 per cent. Infinitely recyclable.”
