Jason Momoa has long been an advocate for the environment, and his environmental work has even led to speeches at the U.N. It seems like basically everywhere he goes, he's working to make the environment cleaner. As it turns out, that includes Instagram.

In a recent post from "Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt, Pratt announced that he would be sharing his workout routine on Instagram through a partnership with Amazon. He also shared an image of himself in the gym.

"You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance...," the actor wrote. "Well, turns out I'm teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020."

Momoa wouldn't have had any problems with this, except that, in the photo, Pratt is holding a disposable plastic water bottle. As it turns out, that kind of single-use plastic is terrible for the environment.

Momoa let Pratt know exactly that in a comment on the post. "Bro I love u but wtf on the water bottle. no single use plastic. come one." The "Aquaman" star clearly cares deeply about this issue, so much so that he filmed a PSA of himself shaving his beard to raise awareness of the issue.

Many comments praised the actor for speaking up and argued that every person counts in this fight. Other suggested that Momoa was being a hypocrite, and posted this photo of the actor using a plastic bottle.

To his credit, Pratt responded quickly. "Aquaman! You’re completely right. Dammit. I always carry my big gallon size reusable water jug around with me too. I even had it that day!!!," the actor wrote.

“If I remember correctly somebody threw that plastic bottle to me in the photoshoot cause I didn’t know what to do with my hands!” Pratt added. “I never know what to do with my hands! So uncomfortable. For real tho. Love you too buddy. My bad. I don’t want your home of Atlantis covered in plastic. Hear that kids? Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.”

As the issue between them grew more attention, Momoa also posted a photo of the pair together with his own comment.

"@prattprattpratt BRO you know my children and I are madly in love with you and I love everything you do," Momoa wrote. "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"
