In honor of the values and service of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, today is a perfect day to use as a stepping stone to get involved in your own community. Jack’s Kokua Hawaii Foundation is hosting a Day of Service Beach Cleanup at Malaekahana, or you can find a local volunteer effort near you. As this federal holiday is taking place during the government shutdown, you can also choose to get creative and do a personal watershed or neighborhood cleanup as part of a #ShutDownPickUp action. Join friends or family to celebrate by giving back.

It was an unforgettable night celebrating a living legend... the one and only Willie Nelson. Earlier that day Jack picked up a used guitar that happened to be belong to Steve Earle. When Jack got backstage Steve Earle was there and gave him the entire history of the guitar. Jack then decided to make his other guitar a time capsule from the night. 📸 K.Johnson & Emmett Malloy

Surfers and spectators at the Billabong Pipe Masters caught the #PlasticFreeWave to inspire ocean lovers around the world to wipe out plastic pollution! As part of the Plastic Free Pipeline Project, ocean artist Ethan Estess teamed up with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, Kokua Hawaii Foundation and WSL PURE to create a large sculpture of Banzai Pipeline from plastic pollution, fishing nets and reclaimed lumber. The giant wave was on display at the Pipe Masters event to raise awareness about plastic ocean pollution. The sculpture is now moving to Turtle Bay Resort to engage the public, with a goal of inspiring conversations on display throughout the islands. Will you Catch the Plastic Free Wave?

The Kokua Hawaii Foundation, @sustainablecoastlineshawaii and WSL PURE have teamed up with renowned ocean artist and scientist Ethan Estess to create the Plastic Free Pipeline, an interactive sculpture of the Banzai Pipeline made from marine debris, derelict fishing nets, and reclaimed lumber.

Jack is joining surfers and spectators to Catch the #PlasticFreeWave to inspire ocean lovers around the world to wipe out single-use plastics.

Throughout a decade of touring, I've worked with my crew to reduce our environmental footprint and to inspire fans to take action in their own daily lives. At the shows last year, fans took over 100,000 environmental actions through our All At Once campaign and tour greening initiatives and we worked with venues to conserve energy, reduce food waste and single-use plastic, and support carbon offset projects around the world..."
