Jason Momoa Shames Chris Pratt For Single-Use Plastic, Someone Digs Up A Pic And Tries To Call Out Jason Momoa

Jason Momoa has become quite the environmentalist. Raising money for cleaning up the coastline, giving speeches at the United Nations… He’s done a lot. But he isn’t done yet.

The 40-year-old actor continues his fight against plastic, calling out Chris Pratt on Instagram for drinking bottled water. In one of his recent uploads, Pratt posed in a gym setting wearing workout clothes, however, he was also holding a plastic bottle, which the ocean activist noticed.

Chris Pratt just posted a photo of himself in an Amazon promotion

And while some were pointing out his toned down physique

Jason Momoa was quick to point out its major environmental flaw

Canned water is having quite the moment in the U.S. Liquid Death, from former Netflix executive Mike Cessario, has raised $1.6 million in seed funding, with the tagline “Murder your thirst.” It’s a breakout hit, inviting people to drink water out of a tallboy beer can.

Jason Momoa, on the other hand, introduced Mana Nalu and even shaved his iconic Khal Drogo beard to bring attention to oceanic plastic.

Recently Momoa starred in this PSA where he literally punched out this plastic bottle out of the guys hands

He’s been known for speaking against single-use plastic  and environmental disasters

People noticed and praised the ‘Aquaman’

Some, however, thought Momoa was being a hypocrite and posted this pic:

While others defended him saying he’s come a long way since then

In response, Pratt wrote, “Aquaman! You’re completely right. Dammit. I always carry my big gallon size reusable water jug around with me too. I even had it that day!!!”

“If I remember correctly somebody threw that plastic bottle to me in the photo shoot cause I didn’t know what to do with my hands!” Pratt said. “I never know what to do with my hands! So uncomfortable. For real tho. Love you too buddy. My bad. I don’t want your home of Atlantis covered in plastic. Hear that kids? Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.”

After the situation drew so much attention, Momoa explained his point in greater detail

Just digging out pictures hardly makes a point. You will find pictures you could call hypocrite of the greatest ethics leads, unless, maybe, they are asketic monks. The point was that the original picture was a promotional one, and if you put attention to the smallest details, you should replace a water bottle by a reusable one. Not more, and not less.

And honestly, I feel like people who dig in the past are the real hypocrites. If your argument is forcing an old fact that's not relevant in the present anymore, then it's nule.

I'm not supporting the use of plastic bottles, however in some situations it might be difficult to avoid it completely. So in some countries, like Germany we have a deposit fee on plastic and glass bottles. When you buy a plastic bottle you pay 25 cents extra, and when you return it you will receive your money back. Most people therefore tend to return the bottles, or people will gather those bottles and bring them back for extra cash. This ensures that most plastic bottles in Germany are being recycled, last info I found from 2018 stated that 90% of plastic bottles are being recycled in Germany.

Certain states in the US do that. it's usually 5 or 10 cents, but the same principal.

to be honest plastic bottles can be multi-use, i bought mine because of size and refilled it multiple times already over the years, like it because it's lighter than multiple use glass or metal ones

Except those bottles weren't tested for multi-use, so as they degrade, you may be ingesting chemicals.
