Jason Momoa, who is best known for playing Khal Drogo in Game of ThronesArthur Curry in Aquaman and Declan Harp in the Frontier TV series, shaved his beard for the first time since 2012. The actor bid goodbye to his signature beard in a video he shared on YouTube to help raise awareness for recycling.

"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. He also talks about the brand of canned water he is launching alongside Ball Corporation, writes CNN.
