When Jason Momoa shaves, people take notice. The Aquaman actor recently shaved his beard to raise awareness on the importance of recycling aluminum. And spoiler: his chin is just as chiseled as we all thought it would be.

Normally, changing facial hair would be the very least someone could do to raise awareness for a cause. (Wasn’t No-shave November supposed to help out cancer research in some way?) But people are freaking out about finally being able to see Momoa’s chin, so shaving is the best way he could have raised awareness for recycling. Everyone noticed. We’re all listening now.

75% of aluminum is still in circulation even though 100% of it is recyclable, as Momoa explained in the video. “You drink the can and in about 60 days, it’ll be back. 100 percent. Infinitely recyclable,” he said.

Twitter was not happy about the change.But you guys, it’s better to mourn Momoa’s beard than it is to mourn the planet.


Momoa posted a video of the shave heard round the world on You Tube.

"Goodbye DROGO, AQUAMAN, DECLAN, BABA! I'm shaving this beast off, it's time to make a change," Momoa wrote in the video’s caption. "A change for the better...for my kids, for your kids, the world."Hey, if you want to see change, you gotta make a change."

This marks the first time Momoa has shaved since 2012, so obviously this is a significant moment in history. RIP Aquaman’s beard hair.

In the video, Momoa can be seen taking buzzers to his iconic beard while delivering an important message about the environment in the desert. This is pretty much porn for people who love sensitive men but hate beards.

“I just want to do this to bring awareness because plastics are killing our planet and I think we have a solution,”Momoa said. “I don’t want to bitch about it [but] there’s only one thing that will really help our planet and save our planet — as long as we recycle — and that’s aluminum.”

Personally, I hate beards, so Jason Momoa shaving and saving the planet is a win-win all around for me. This is for the best. Really, it is.

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.

Recent tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have sparked a lot of conversation and action on the state level over the issue of gun control. But none may be as encouraging as the most recent one, in which 145 CEOs signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to take action at their level.
