Jack John­son

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Music -

The Hawai­ian-born surfer singer-song­writer is surely the world’s most eco-friendly pop star. All re­leases on his Brush­fire la­bel are recorded us­ing so­lar en­ergy and pack­aged with 100 per cent post-con­sumer re­cy­cled pa­per.

On the road, John­son uses biodiesel-pow­ered tour buses and gen­er­a­tors, en­cour­ages re­cy­cling at venues, and off­sets any re­main­ing C02 emis­sions to en­sure a car­bon-netrual tour. He even pro­duces a re­port on how the lat­ter was achieved.

He is also co-founder of the Kokua Hawaii Foun­da­tion, which sup­ports green ed­u­ca­tion in Hawai­ian schools. Truly as green as Ker­mit the Frog.
