Last week Jack Johnson paid a visit to two schools in his homeland of Hawaii. The singer performed a surprise concert as a reward to the students for their conservation efforts at both Waiakea Elementary School in Hilo and Ewa Makai Middle School on Oahu.

At Waiakea Elementary School, Johnson acknowledged students for their efforts in launching a successful school-wide recycling program. At Ewa Makai Middle School he toured the campus with his wife and checked out all of the eco-features the school has established. The Ewa Makai Middle School is an impressive one, not only because of the organic garden, but it also boasts a butterfly atrium as well as a compost pipeline for the cafeteria’s food waste.
