Make a Choice to Eat Locally Grown Organic Food

All At Once is Jack Johnson’s social action network, where you can make a positive change in your
local and world community through your actions, your voice, and your choice. This year’s All At
Once campaign focuses on supporting plastic free initiatives, as well as sustainable local food
systems.

From field to fork, an average dinner travels 1,500 miles. But your food doesn’t have to travel
halfway around the planet, burning up fossil fuels along the way. It doesn’t need to be grown with
pesticides either. You can make a choice to eat locally grown organic food. When you buy from local
farmers, your dollars stay within your community and support local farms. When you choose
organic, you are investing in healthy food and a clean environment.

Jack Johnson and All At Once have teamed up with the Eat Well Guide to encourage fans to take
action by eating at restaurants that serve local organic produce. Check out this customized Guide to
Good Food for a list of locally grown and sustainably produced food from family farms, restaurants,
farmers' markets, grocery stores, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, U-pick
orchards and more.

ABOUT JACK JOHNSON’S GREEN ACTIVISM
Jack Johnson, and his wife Kim, have spent the last seven years effecting change in their home state of
Hawaii and worldwide through involvement in many social and environmental issues. Their Kokua Hawaii
Foundation and Kokua Festival support environmental education in Hawaii’s schools and communities.
Jack Johnson’s 2008 tour and CD, Sleep Through the Static, set a new precedent in the music industry by
taking an eco-friendly approach to all aspects of production. In conjunction with his 2008 world tour, Johnson
launched the AllAtOnce.org campaign and gave 100% of his tour profits to local non-profit partners through
his newly established Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation.

In 2010, Jack Johnson released his newest album, To The Sea, on his own label Brushfire Records and
embarked on another world tour. To The Sea was recorded at his solar-powered studio and will be released
in eco-friendly packaging. His world tour will continue to lead the way in sustainable touring efforts to reduce
its environmental impact in significant ways. This year’s All At Once campaign will focus on supporting non-
profit groups and engaging fans in the realms of plastic waste reduction and sustainable local food systems.
As in 2008, Jack Johnson will once again donate 100% of his tour profits to charity.

Here is a brief snapshot of Jack Johnson’s activism:

KOKUA HAWAII FOUNDATION
In 2003 the Johnsons founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports
environmental education in the schools and communities of Johnson’s native home state of Hawaii. The
Foundation’s mission is to provide students with exciting and interactive encounters that will enhance their
appreciation for, and understanding of, their environment so they will be lifelong stewards of the earth. In
addition to several school programs, the Foundation’s work has expanded with local community events and
environmental action campaigns. Visit kokuahawaiifoundation.org for more information.

KOKUA FESTIVAL
The Johnsons created and produce the Kokua Festival, which is now heading into its sixth year.
The Festival raises funds for the Kokua Hawaii Foundation programs and also serves as an international
environmental education event that models green practices. All parties involved in producing the Festival
are committed to environmental sustainability– striving for a zero-waste and carbon-neutral event. Kokua
greening actions include the Earth Day Resolution campaign, zero-waste stations, water refill stations,
eco-friendly concert merchandise featuring US-made organic cotton and 100% post-consumer waste
recycled paper, use of local and sustainable biodiesel in production vehicles and generators, a Kokua
Village showcasing green companies and environmental non-profits, locally-grown organic concessions and
catering, bike valet and electric concert shuttles, and offsetting all festival CO2 emissions through renewable
energy programs in Hawaii. Visit kokuafestival.com for more information.

JOHNSON OHANA CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
100% of Jack Johnson’s 2008 tour profits were used to establish the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation,
an endowment founded by Jack and his wife Kim to support environmental, art and music education now
and into the future. The Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation has made over $750,000 in donations to
date and as part of the 2010 world tour, will offer direct and matching donations to All At Once partner non-
profits.




                                                                                                          Page 14
1% FOR THE PLANET
In 2004, Jack Johnson became the 50th member of 1% For The Planet.
Johnson’s 2005 release of In Between Dreams became the first album to
carry the 1% label and his 2005 world tour promoted the 1% For The Planet
mission and brand and helped to launch the organization. Today 1% For
The Planet is a growing global movement of more than 700 companies that
donate 1% of their sales to a network of more than 1,500 environmental
organizations worldwide. In the process, these companies pave the
way for more corporate responsibility in the business community. Visit
onepercentfortheplanet.org for more information.

GREEN TOURING
Jack Johnson’s tour production team is at the forefront of the green touring movement, effecting change
at many levels in the industry. In 2005, Jack Johnson, along with his crew, MusicMatters and leading
environmental scientists developed the EnviroRider, an environmental handbook presenting eco-friendly
options and actions for the various components of tour production. For Johnson’s 2008 tour, the EnviroRider
was updated to reflect new technologies and practices, and to include more stringent policies for venue
participation, requiring compliance with waste reduction, recycling, and CO2 offsetting guidelines. In 2008,
Johnson enlisted the help of environmental non-profit Reverb to execute all onsite tour greening efforts and
fan outreach. With the help of MusicMatters, Reverb and the cooperation of fans and venues around the
world, Johnson was successful in not only implementing changes for his tour dates but also in engaging fans
and encouraging venues to adopt lasting sustainable practices.

For Johnson’s 2010 world tour, his production team, with the support of Reverb, will continue to pave the
way in green touring practices. Tour trucks and coaches will use sustainable biodiesel where possible
to reduce CO2 emissions. Fans will be incentivized to use mass transportation and the All At Once ride
share program. All tour merchandise will be made from sustainable materials with a focus on reusables
and renewables. The tour will collaborate with local food producers in each community to promote and
provide locally grown and organic foods. Waste reduction measures will be expanded with on-site water refill
stations along with bio-ware, composting and recycling. After all energy conservation measures have been
taken, remaining CO2 emissions will be offset through support of a variety of carbon management projects.

ALL AT ONCE – FAN ENGAGEMENT AND ACTIVATION
In 2008, Jack Johnson and crew launched All At Once, a social action network and global community
based on the belief that an individual action, multiplied by millions, creates global change. All At Once
provides information, tools, and motivation to empower individuals to become active in their local and world
community. At the close of the 2008 world tour, All At Once raised over $900,000 for local non-profits and
generated over 250,000 individual actions. Visit AllAtOnce.org for more information.

The Village Green is where All At Once comes to life at Johnson’s concerts – fans connect with non-profit
partners, learn about environmental actions, capture environmental commitment photos, reduce plastic
waste by filling reusable bottles at water stations, and enter their AAO Passport for a chance to watch Jack’s
performance from the sidestage.

NON-PROFIT SUPPORT AND COLLABORATION
Johnson’s 2010 tour is collaborating with over 150 hand-chosen community groups working in the realms of
plastic waste reduction, sustainable agriculture, community & school gardens, climate change, water quality,
and environmental education. Partnering non-profits are hosting volunteer events leading up to the shows
and using donated concert tickets to leverage new members or raise funds for their projects. Participating
non-profits interact with fans at the concerts in the “Village Green,” with the goal of raising awareness about
local issues and engaging community action. The Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation offers direct and
matching donations to all non-profit tour partners in addition to the expanded support and promotion they
receive from the All At Once online community.

2010 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT GOALS
Impacts will be tracked throughout Johnson’s 2010 world tour to demonstrate how collective action
can result in significant change. An end-of-tour report will be available at www.AllAtOnce.org and
jackjohnsonmusic.com. Measurable actions include:
     • Number of All At Once pledges on site and online
     • Number of participants in local environmental events & projects leading up to the concert
     • Dollars raised for local All At Once non-profit partners
     • Tons of CO2 reduced from All At Once & tour efforts (ride sharing, carbon offsets, biodiesel)
     • Number of plastic bags and water bottles replaced by reusables
     • Pounds of waste recycled/composted at the venues

BRUSHFIRE RECORDS LABEL GREENING
Jack Johnson’s record label, Brushfire Records, is blazing a trail in environmental responsibility among
record labels. Brushfire is headquartered in a newly-renovated green building, leveraging a number of
innovative features to keep their environmental impact low.

These features include: solar panels that provide all power for offices and studio, interior/exterior wall
insulation made from 100% post consumer waste (cotton from blue jean scraps), a Duro-Last green roof
and recycled shingles, refinished hardwood, cork and marmoleum flooring, and low VOC paints and
primers. In addition, the record label pays close attention to its internal operations, monitoring energy use
and increasing efficiency through lighting and fixtures, reducing office waste and ensuring company-wide
recycling, composting, sourcing sustainable goods for office supplies and other operational needs, and
offsetting all company CO2 emissions.

Brushfire has also worked to get its clients and colleagues on board. The label is a member of 1% for
the Planet and encourages its artists to do the same. In addition, Brushfire convinced Universal (their
manufacturer/distributor) to use FSC-certified recycled paper for all their Brushfire music and film releases,
developed the first 100% recycled plastic tray, and piloted a new form of environmental packaging called
Eco-Pac.

Brushfire Records is also a founding member of the recently launched Green Music Group. Brushfire will
be working with other Green Music Group members to develop industry greening standards that will assist
other labels, artists, venues, and music industry professionals in implementing sustainable practices. Visit
brushfirerecords.com for more information.
