Jack Johnson is a cool dude. He is a singer-songwriter idolized for his acoustic abilities, he grew up in Hawaii as the son of well-known surfer Jeff Johnson, and now he’s upped the ante by joining the fight to end plastic pollution.

Johnson sang for the cause in a recent YouTube video, where he reminded fans that “there’s no need to be such a fancy pants, put down the plastic water bottle and give the kids a chance.” The spot was filmed for the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a global alliance dedicated to spreading awareness about plastic’s harmful environmental effects, and was part of the November 6th event, TEDxGreatPacificGarbagePatch, which challenges participants to REFUSE single use and disposable plastics.

Luckily, Johnson isn’t the only celeb onboard, with faces like Ed Begley Jr, Benicio del Toro, Jackson Browne, and Yareli Arizmendi gracing YouTube spots as well. All of the videos feature musicians and actors saying no to disposable plastic, and offering ways to avoid polluting.

We think this is a great celebrity trend, and we’re planning to stay tuned to plasticpollutioncoalition.org for more videos.

Check out Jack’s little ditty below:
