Jason Momoa SLAMMED for climate hypocrisy as star is accused of ‘demonizing plastic bottles’

Date:

Jason Momoa has been accused of climate hypocrisy and stopping his own watermark after encouraging fans to use aluminum cans instead of plastic bottles in a recent video.

In a September video, the actor, 43, flipped out his long hair to draw attention to the single-use plastic crisis.

The star, a longtime campaigner for ocean conservation, was mentioned Thursday in a full-page ad from the Center for Organizational Research and Education (CORE) in USA Today — exposing the star’s video as a cynical ploy to earn money for his own business.

Oh dear: Jason Momoa has been accused of climate hypocrisy and stopping his own watermark after encouraging fans to use aluminum cans instead of plastic bottles in a recent video

The headline of the ad read, “DOES MOMOA CARE ABOUT THE PLANET OR PROFIT?” along with the caption: ‘Jason Momoa’s new movie Slumberland should make him dream if he believes canned water will help the planet.

“He may make money off cans, but the planet will suffer.”

The ad contains a link to the website MoronicMomoa.com with a video explaining that aluminum is more harmful to the environment than plastic.

The video said, “Jason Momoa recently made a selfish statement about the environment

The silly message was a stunt where some of his long locks were shaved off

The haircut was apparently linked to saving the planet, as it drew attention to switching plastic bottles for aluminum. He claims the switch will help save the planet, but like the required suspension of belief in watching his movies, we now believe that aluminum cans are better than plastic bottles.

“Plastic bottles are better than aluminum because the bottles are made of ultra-thin reusable plastic, they are easy to recycle and aluminum bottles are five times more littered than plastic…

‘Bauxite emits twice as much greenhouse gas as the production of plastic bottles.’

Speaking to Fox News, Richard Berman, CORE’s executive director, accused Momoa of being a hypocrite for “selling its overpriced canned water” instead of encouraging recycling.

He said: ‘Jason Momoa is trying to trick his fans into believing he cares about the environment by demonizing plastic water bottles. But unlike the setting of his new movie, this isn’t the dream world and he can’t fool his fans.

The actor founded an aluminum canned water company – a material that is dirty to produce and a product that contains five times more waste than plastic water bottles. If Momoa cared about the planet, it would encourage recycling instead of touting its overpriced canned water.”

DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Jason Momoa for comment.

CORE also criticized Ball, a glass and aluminum manufacturer that packages Momoa’s Mananalu water and owns 49 percent of the company.

CORE says the company has a long track record of environmental destruction and in 2010 was “rated by the University of Massachusetts as the 65th largest air polluter in America.”

They criticized Momoa’s decision to ship its bottles via Amazon, from Mananalau’s facilities in North Carolina and wrapped in plastic bubble wrap.

Jason’s clip to call attention to the single-use plastic crisis saw his signature long locks shaved off. He has campaigned for years to remove plastic from the oceans

“Aloha, everyone,” he began before bursting into laughter. “Give me those braids.”

He then explained that he made the decision to shave his head to raise awareness about how much single-use plastic is being used and thrown away.

“I’m tired of plastic bottles. We must stop [using] plastic forks. All that,” said the See star. “It’s going into our land, into our ocean.”

He continued, “It’s just so sad, so please help me do whatever you can to eliminate single-use plastic from your life.”

Momoa encouraged people to switch to canteens and other reusable water bottles instead of plastic water bottles.

The Game of Thrones star captioned the clip, “Here’s a new beginning, let’s spread the aloha. be better at protecting our land and our oceans. we need to eliminate single use plastics from our lives and from our seas. plastic bottles, plastic bags, packaging, utensils, everything. let’s aloha our ‘āina together aloha j. @mananalu.water.’

In June of this year, he was named an Advocate for Life Below Water by the United Nations.

He said, “With this title, I hope to continue my own journey to protect and preserve the ocean and all living things on our beautiful blue planet, for our generation and the generations to come.”

In 2019, the actor urged world leaders at the United Nations to pay attention to climate change

He spoke out during a session on SAMOA Pathway, the 2014 UN program targeting Small Island Developing States.

The Honolulu, Hawaii resident noted that island nations are “on the front line in this environmental crisis” and often bear the brunt of heavy ocean pollution and the impact of industry.

“Island states contribute the least to this disaster, but must bear the consequences,” said the actor. “Our governments and corporate entities have known for decades that immediate change is needed. Yet there is still no change.’

He added that “entire islands are drowning in the sea because of the massive amount of emissions generated by first world countries.”

The 6ft4 fencer took to Instagram with a snippet of his speech to his 13.4 million followers about the high-profile outing.

“For those who couldn’t see it live, watch me wade through my very honest and direct speech,” he wrote. “No BS. Nothing sugar coated, just straight from the heart. We have cut our global efforts to reverse the climate crisis by half and this cannot continue.”

The actor said conditions must change immediately “for the future of our planet,” adding that “the wave of change is coming” for developing small island nations.

In a separate post, he called the speech “a life-changing moment,” adding that it was “a true honor to represent island nations at the UN.”
