If you follow actor Chris Pratt on Instagram, you may have spotted his recent upload: a photo of himself flexing in gym gear, holding a bottle of water. So far, so standard-Hollywood-celebrity, right? Well, if you scrolled through the comments, you may have also clocked a little note left from Game of Thrones
legend, Jason Momoa, who called Chris out for his single-use plastic bottle.

Yup, underneath the Guardians of the Galaxy star's snap, Jason wrote, "bro i love u but wtf on the water bottle. no single use plastic. come on." And to be fair, we can see why - it's a cause very close to Jason's own heart. So much so, that he's even got his own line of water sold in easily recyclable cans, MANANULA.
Now, we're sure that Chris is also in favour of doing his bit for the planet and that this was just a slip-up (or maybe Amazon, who his post was in association with, asked him to hold the plastic bottle?) - we've all had those days where we forget our Chilly's re-usable bottle and have to nip into WHSmith for a bottle of Evian. But Jason's comment was certainly a good reminder of the damage that single-use plastic has on the environment, plus the power of celebrity influence.
Here's Chris's pic in question:
Shortly afterwards though, Jason then took to his own social media account and posted a cute photo of himself, his two children (Lola and Nakoa-Wolf) and Chris Pratt, with a follow-up caption: "BRO you know my children and I are madly in love with you and I love everything you do. I'm sorry this was received so badly today I didn't mean for that to happen. I'm just very passionate about this single use plastic epidemic. the plastic water bottles have to stop i hope u make a reusable water bottle for amazon so we all can purchase. You're an inspiration to many, I'm one of them. I'll send you a case of MANANALU. All my Aloha, Da Momoa's."
So basically, all's well that ends well and thanks for the reminder, Jason.
