Jack Johnson and his All At Once campaign is collaborating with hand chosen community groups worldwide to support sustainable local food systems and plastic free initiatives.

The All At Once campaign supports non-profits and engages fans in the realms of sustainable local food systems and plastic free initiatives.

You can make a personal commitment to reduce your plastic waste and support locally grown food. Capture Your Commitment at the All At Once Photo Wall at a show or online at AllAtOnce.org.

Water
Jack and his crew are eliminating the use of single-use plastic water bottles on tour by filling up at backstage water refill stations.

You can fill up your own reusable water bottle at the All At Once Water Stations located at most venues. Jack Johnson Klean Kanteen reusable bottles will also be available for purchase at the shows. To learn more about plastic free initiatives visit AllAtOnce.org.

Recycle & Waste Reduction
Jack Johnson tour crew work with venue operators to make every effort towards a zero waste tour through recycling, composting, and other waste diversion efforts to reduce the amount of waste headed for the landfill.

You can support this initiative by participating in recycling and composting on site. Look for the All At Once recycling signage at the venue.

Travel
Sustainable biodiesel is used to fuel tour trucks, buses and generators throughout North America. Ground and sea freight is used for shipping gear in an effort to further reduce the tour’s carbon footprint.

You can save gas, money and reduce your carbon footprint by carpooling, utilizing shuttles, mass transit, or riding bikes to get to the show. Link up with friends via the Jack Johnson Ride-Share Program on ZimRide in North America or find an efficient way to commute.

Catering & Concession
As part of a farm to stage catering program, Jack Johnson tour crew work directly with local farms and purveyors to source locally grown organic foods.

In North America you can check out eatwellguide.com, in the UK explore www.soilassociation.org/goodfoodforall, and in Australia visit www.sustainabletable.org.au to find fresh, local and sustainable food options at restaurants, farmer’s markets, CSA’s and stores in your area.

Eco-Friendly Concert Merchandise
All tour merchandise is made from sustainable materials with a focus on reusables and renewables. Jack Johnson tour crew use reusable water bottles and bags to reduce plastic waste.

You can pick up your own exclusive Jack Johnson Klean Kanteen reusable water bottle, upcycled tote bag, recycled paper tour poster and 100% Organic cotton t-shirts. Visit the Jack Johnson Online Store to shop today!

Carbon Offsets
After all energy conservation measures have been taken, remaining CO2 emissions for each show and the entire tour will be offset to support a variety of local and sustainable carbon management projects.

You can offset your travel to and from the show by purchasing a Jack Johnson carbon offset sticker at any of the merchandise stands or by opting in to the carbon offset ticket add-on when purchasing your concert tickets online, where available.

Impact will be tracked throughout the tour to demonstrate how collective action can result in significant change. Stay tuned for more info and to access the end of tour report.
