It’s not just fashion, Chris! Environmental activist Hemsworth dons a Sea Shepherd singlet as he takes his second private jet of the week to return to Sydney just ONE day after travelling to Byron Bay

Chris Hemsworth flew from Sydney to Byron Bay via a private jet on Saturday.

Despite his penchant for private flights, Chris is also known to be a climate change activist.

He recently marched alongside his daughter India Rose in a strike at Byron Bay in 2019, calling for action on the issue.

In an Instagram post at the time, the Avengers star shared a clip of himself carrying young India in crowd shouting: ‘What do we want? Climate action. When do we want it? Now.’

He also wrote in a lengthy post that we must, ‘move away from the burning of fossil fuels, no more new oil, gas, coal projects’.

Chris added: ‘The climate crisis is upon us. Children understand the basic science that if we continue to pollute the planet climate change will worsen and they won’t have a future. None of us will. The planet will die’.

In October 2020, he joined Priyanka Chopra for a special session of TED Countdown, where he discussed the climate crisis.

Chris and his wife Elsa are both filming new movies in Sydney and travel back home to Byron Bay on weekends.
