Help Us Fight Plastic Pollution

For his 2018 Concert Tour, Jack Johnson is matching your donation dollar-for-dollar and funds raised will directly support our efforts to reduce plastic pollution.

If you live in Arizona or Utah (or would like the chance to go to either show), be sure to put which concert you are entering to win tickets to in the Donor Scroll box above. For every $20 you donate, your name will be entered to win two tickets (if you donate $100, your name will be entered 5x). Winners of the drawing will be selected August 20.

The Inland Ocean Coalition's Suck the Straws Out Campaign is an educational effort to decrease the use of plastic straws. In the United States, we use 500 million every single day - enough to encircle the earth 2.5 times.

We are at a crisis point when it comes to plastic pollution. Not only must we work to eliminate single-use plastics, we also need educate people about the dangers of plastic pollution. The plastic industry is planning to ramp up production 33-40% by 2025 through the construction of 264 new plastic producing facilities, and it is estimated that 100,000 marine animals and over one million seabirds already die annually from plastic. Trillions of plastic straws are used around the world each year, and they are among the top 10 most common trash items found on beaches worldwide. Much of the plastic inland eventually flows downstream to the ocean—in fact, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our ocean every minute.

With your generosity, we will continue to grow our Suck the Straws Out Campaign, which although it targets plastic straws, aims to get people thinking about the other unnecessary plastic items used in our daily lives. Your contribution will help us achieve our goal of eliminating plastic straws from at least 100 restaurants, bars, coffee shops, ski resorts, concert venues, etc. by the end of 2018, all while spreading awareness about plastic pollution.
