"I just want to do this to bring awareness that plastics are killing our planet. And we have a solution. I don't wanna b***h about it but the only thing that can really help our planet and save our planet as long as we recycle. And that's aluminium," he explains in the four-minute-long video before adding that almost 75 per cent of the aluminium used is completely recyclable.
