snipshot_6i1jul4p6765.jpgThere are few albums out there with every song worth listening to. However, Jack Johnson remains a popular exception due to his unique style and easy musical groove. It’s also helps that the guy is a heavy environmentalist with songs that speak about issues facing you and me as much as they entertain. (I never thought I would purchase the Curious George soundtrack, but the album rocks!)

Jack’s been busy in his home state of Hawaii promoting environmental and recycling education through the Kokua Hawai’I Foundation (which he started) and stumping for Charter Amendment 4; which would institute curbside recycling on the island of O’ahu. (Pretty amazing that there isn’t a state-wide initiative in place..) Jack, his wife Kim, and a host of volunteers toured schools around O’ahu, singing the 3-Rs song and getting the word out about Amendment #4.

Anyways, the Amendment went up for a vote last November 7th, but we had heard nothing regarding the results. So, we did a little digging and contacted Betty at the Hawaiian Sierra Club. Here’s what she had to say,

“Yes, the amendment passed and we were very grateful for Jack’s help. He has been an amazing model of what someone with the public appeal can do to move a community forward on green issues. Jack and Kim are also leading the way here in Hawaii with their ‘AINA in Schools program
bringing garden-based learning to our public schools.”

Awesome. Nice job, Jack and Co. The 3-Rs are alive and well….

This week in the veganverse IV

Wonder why everyone is so concerned with vegan underwear, hot dogs, and how we’ll celebrate Easter? Me too! It’s this week in the veganverse, round four.

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
