Whether it’s cleaning up beaches, finding ways to make his tours more eco-friendly or raising awareness about plastic pollution, when he’s not making music, Jack Johnson is always doing something to help the planet.
And this week is no exception.
The singer and passionate environmentalist has joined forces with Costas Verdes, an organisation that restores the wildlife to degraded beaches across Costa Rica.
Working with dozens of kids and local volunteers as well as the Minister of Environment Carlos Manuel Rodríguez, Jack and the team planted 300 trees along several metres of coastline at Playa Hermosa in Puntarenas.
The aim is to have more vegetation in these areas to not only combat the effects of the climate crisis but also to regulate the temperature of the sand so various animal species such as turtles can nest there again.
In an Insta post, Jack Johnson’s reps explain that, “restoring coastlines and reducing plastic pollution is especially important for the people of Costa Rica – a country that is 92% marine territory.”
