Singer Cody Simpson just educated his fans on the importance of climate change awareness. On Sunday, December 8, the 22-year-old took to Instagram and posted a black and white, nearly naked photo which promoted his environmental activism.
In the picture, Cody showed off his body as he laid on a bed with Louis Vuitton sheets next to a dog. His bottom half was covered by a blanket that read, “Stop looking at my d**k and start looking at the facts about climate change.”
As fans know, this isn’t the first time the singer has taken to social media and urged fans to protect the environment. On Tuesday, December 3, Cody teamed up with United Nations Development Programme — which helps the fight against climate change — and challenged himself and his 3.8 million Instagram followers to live ten days without plastic.
“These things just don’t break down,” he captioned a picture of himself holding a plastic water bottle during a beach clean-up. “Single-use plastic has an average lifespan of 12 to 15 minutes but can take over 1,000 years to disintegrate. Much of it ends up in our oceans and the convenience is not worth the cost.”

These things just don’t break down. Single-use plastic has an average lifespan of 12 to 15 minutes but can take over 1,000 years to disintegrate. Much of it ends up in our oceans and the convenience is not worth the cost. I challenge myself and the rest of you to live entirely without plastics for 10 days. Post your experience with #NoPlasticChallenge and tag @undp and I. Are you in?
According to an article he wrote for Teen Vogue back in September 2018, Cody’s passion for the environment started during his childhood growing up on Australia’s Gold Coast.
“I have seen the state of our environment and natural world worsen immensely. I advocate for the environmental education of my own generation and generations to come, as the planet is in our hands,” he wrote. “Humans are imposing major damage on the planet every day. Single-use plastic, such as water bottles, grocery bags, straws and cups — easily avoidable items that are far too commonly used — are just a few examples of what a single person could cut out of their lives in order to start making an impact.”
