Singer Jack Johnson has rewarded eco-minded students for their recycling efforts by performing at two schools in his native Hawaii.
The Upside Down hitmaker recently made a special trip to Waiakea Elementary School in Hilo to reward pupils for launching a school-wide recycling program.
And last week (ends29Apr12), Johnson also paid a visit to the Ewa MakaiMiddle School on Oahu to play a surprise concert at an assembly, before taking a tour of the campus with his wife Kim and posing for pictures with students.
The eco-friendly Ewa Makai school boasts an organic garden, a butterflyatrium and a compost pipeline for the cafeteria's food waste.
In other news the singer/songwriter Jack Johnson is set to be honoured with a top conservation award in recognition of his ongoing environmental endeavours.
The Better Together hitmaker has sealed his green credentials over the years - he founded his own charity to raise awareness of eco issues in his native Hawaii, and in 2010 he donated 100 per cent of his tour profits to good causes.
He also fuelled all the touring vehicles with sustainable biodiesel andensured his show merchandise was eco-friendly - and now officials at the National Wildlife Federation have named Johnson the recipient of their National Conservation Achievement Award.
The star will pick up his prize at an event in Washington, D.C. on 17 May (12).
