How Jack Johnson Is Helping to Protect the Amazon

The Amazon Conservation Association is working with Jack Johnson to help offset the carbon emissions from his summer “Sleeping through the Static” tour. Carbon emissions from buses, trucks, planes, hotels, and other emissions by the band and tour staff will be calculated and converted into a monetary equivalent. These funds will be donated to ACA through Jack Johnson’s charitable fund “All at Once.” They will protect over 1,000 acres of rainforest land in the Los Amigos Biological Station in the Peruvian Amazon, offsetting more than 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually.

Offsetting carbon is one of many important ways to support ACA in protecting the rainforest and preserving its rich biodiversity.
