With the growing amount of plastic marine debris washing up on beaches around the world, Jack and his crew, alongside REVERB and Green Music Australia, are working with venues to reduce single-use plastic at the shows and to promote reusable alternatives.

As part of a Reusable Pint Program, fans will have an alternative to disposable plastic cups and can refill beverage containers for free at water stations. Venues are encouraged to offer plastic straws “by request only” and provide alternatives to plastic serveware. Fans can purchase custom Jack Johnson reusable stainless steel straws and pint cups, or receive them as prizes for taking action. At the show, concertgoers can help eliminate plastic waste with reusable water bottles and pint cups, can pledge to take action to reduce plastic ocean pollution, and can connect with non-profits in the Village Green.
