Jack Johnson's eco-friendly tour

Throughout the event there were Brita Water re-fill[image-1] stations where you could refill your own bottle for free as well as plenty of recycling bins. Before the show, the screens showed pictures of the local non-profits, as well as farms and the importance of buying local and reducing waste.

It was a great evening made even better by the overall, eco-friendly atmosphere.

The rain did not put a damper on the Jack Johnson show at the Amphitheater last week. With a crowd of about 17,500, Jack and his crew kept the fans standing and singing along to all of his love-the-earth and you-can-make-a-difference lyrics. He opened his set with "Banana Pancakes", which acknowledged the rainy weather and set the mood for the rest of the show. Jack did little talking in between sets, but did make his commitment of giving back clear: he is donating 100% of his tour profits to charity.

At each show he has a "Village Green" set up where local non-profits, who are part of his All At Once Organization, can set up a display to show what they are doing and how you can help in your community.
