Aquaman actor Jason Momoa recently shaved some of his famously long hair to draw attention to his calls for people to stop using “single-use” plastic — especially bottled water.
It doesn’t take much to see through this baseless environmental ploy. First, Mr. Momoa revealed a few days after the stunt that he actually needed to cut his hair for an upcoming film shoot. The haircut was for a high-dollar project for Apple; not the planet. Second, Mr. Momoa started a water can company. It all smells more like a cash grab for his $50-per-case water can business than a sincere mission.
If you’re worried about pollution, the Momoa position is underwater. Aluminum cans are worse than plastic bottles for the planet. While both can be recycled, the production of aluminum has a higher carbon footprint than plastic.
