Jason Momoa Raises $31,000 Against Plastic Pollution By Throwing Axes

Jason Momoa Raises $31,000 Against Plastic Pollution By Throwing Axes

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa managed to raise a whopping $31,000 (£24,000) for charity in just 45 seconds after throwing axes with Ellen DeGeneres.

The actor showed off his Dothraki strength (and newly shaved beard) while throwing axes on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, in a bid to raise funds in the battle against plastic pollution.

Momoa, 39, chatted about the Oscars and his new look, before going on to discuss his new company Mananalu, which produces canned water as an alternative to single-use plastic bottles.

Jason later revealed he'd been nervous to appear on the show to talk about something that he "loves dearly."

"I have a mission to get rid of single use plastic water bottles," he wrote on Instagram. "To clean up our oceans and land. To ask ourselves how we hydrate. Even though I may carry a canteen to try to reduce these plastics are still being made."

Speaking of his mission, he told Ellen: "I'm Aquaman now and I have all these little beautiful kids come up to me, and I never thought I'd be a role model. So I wanted to save the planet from single-use plastics."

Talks are now underway for Aquaman 2, which Jason revealed joins ocean and water, however he said his mission is more than a creative project.

"There's no outside alien destroying Earth, it's us," he explained. "So I was excited to get back in there so I'm working with our previous writer. We've got a locked story and we're getting into it. I think it's going to be in like two years or something, the beard will be back by then.

"I wanted to kind of save the planet from single use plastics. I was looking at all these statistics where it's like, 91 per cent of all the plastics we're using aren't recyclable."
