Jack kicked off 2020 with a bang with two back to back beach cleanups. First, Jack joined 75 amazing students from Semester at Sea to remove hundreds of pounds of microplastic from the shoreline of Oahu. The beach clean-up was hosted by Kōkua Hawai‘i Foundation and Sustainable Coastlines Hawai‘i and included hands-on art and education activities to dive deeper into solutions to plastic pollution. Thanks to everyone who helped make this volunteer event a success!

The following weekend on January 20th, in the spirit of community service and citizen action, and in honor of Martin Luther King Day of Service, Jack teamed up with 350 volunteers to remove over 5000 lbs of marine debris from James Campbell Wildlife Refuge at Kahuku. Mahalo to Kōkua Hawai‘i Foundation, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Sustainable Coastlines Hawai‘i, All Good Brand, and all of the families, students, teachers, individuals, businesses, and organizations that volunteered to keep our coastlines clean!
