Extreme babes Chris Hemsworth and Diego Luna are reminding you (gently, softly) to clean up ya’ goddamn mess.
The actors have been tapped by Corona and Parley for the Oceans to lead a long-term campaign aiming to protect 100 islands across the world from plastic by 2020, alongside Chile‘s Ramon Navarro and Dominican Republic‘s Nashla Bogaert.
And to promote this, they flew all the actors to the Maldives to pick up bottles + go surfing + film themselves picking up bottles and surfing.
Look. We’ve all seen ‘An Inconvenient Truth‘. We all know that looking after the environment is vitally important to humanity’s survival or whatever, but it can become a *touch* dull. And sex? It sells, alright. Ever heard of a little known god called Thor???
Or… Cassian Andor???? Okay, that one’s a smidge more niche. The main rebel dude from ‘Rebel One‘.
Basically, if we don’t put a halt to the plastic entering our oceans (currently at a rate of 8 million metric tons per year), then we’ll have more plastic than fish by the year 2050.
So just let the hot people use their hotness for good.
“I’ve spent a large part of my life in and around the ocean, it’s where a lot of my happiest memories came from,” said Chris. “If I had anxieties or worries, I’d head to the ocean and it was always the place where I could reset and be 100% present.”
“My experience in the Maldives made it obvious how our short-term use of plastic has a long-term damaging effect on our oceans. I’m thrilled to be a part of this program, because I want to inspire people to find a solution and protect the world’s oceans so future generations can enjoy them like I do.”
“When you picture beautiful islands and other beach destinations, you imagine them in their pristine state with clear blue waters,” said Diego, “but then you see the problem up close and you realise that we are destroying paradise through our careless use of plastic.”
“All of us can be part of the solution and help our beaches and oceans by taking simple actions to use less plastic in our daily lives, recycle more, and educate the people around us to do the same.”
