Jack Johnson Matching Donation & Concerts
Your Donation Will Be Matched Dollar-for-Dollar to Help Us Fight Plastic Pollution
For his 2018 Concert Tour, Jack Johnson is matching your donation dollar-for-dollar through September 15. Funds raised will directly support our efforts to reduce plastic pollution through our Suck the Straws Out Campaign, an educational effort to decrease the use of plastic straws. In the United States, we use 500 million every single day - enough to encircle the earth 2.5 times.
We are at a crisis point when it comes to plastic pollution. Not only must we work to eliminate single-use plastics, we also need educate people about the dangers of plastic pollution. The plastic industry is planning to ramp up production 33-40% by 2025 through the construction of 264 new plastic producing facilities, and it is estimated that 100,000 marine animals and over one million seabirds already die annually from plastic. Trillions of plastic straws are used around the world each year, and they are among the top 10 most common trash items found on beaches worldwide. Much of the plastic inland eventually flows downstream to the ocean—in fact, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our ocean every minute.
With your generosity, we will continue to grow our Suck the Straws Out Campaign, which although it targets plastic straws, aims to get people thinking about the other unnecessary plastic items used in our daily lives. Your contribution will help us achieve our goal of eliminating plastic straws from at least 100 restaurants, bars, coffee shops, ski resorts, concert venues, etc. by the end of 2018, all while spreading awareness about plastic pollution.
