Art From Scrap Teams Up with Jack Johnson

Evironmental Education Group to Benefit from Musician’s Concert


Art From Scrap is teaming up with Jack Johnson on his 2010 To the Sea Tour and All At Once, a social action network that connects nonprofits with people who want to become active in their local and world community.

For more than 20 years, Art From Scrap (AFS) has been a leading environmental education organization in Santa Barbara. The AFS Green Schools Program reaches 14,000 children yearly, through lessons and field trips covering the topics of Waste Diversion, Watershed Education, Gardening, and Composting. Art From Scrap promotes the philosophy of All At Once, that, “Collectively, individual actions create global change. Your actions, your voice, and your choices, all have a huge impact.”

As part of this partnership, the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation (Jack Johnson’s new charity) is matching every dollar contributed to Art From Scrap, up to $2,500, between now and October 15. Any contributions made at this time will double in value through this generous matching opportunity!

On October 13, Art From Scrap will have a table at Jack Johnson’s Santa Barbara County Bowl concert. The table will be located in the Village Green, a collection of interactive booths where concert-goers can get educated, inspired, and connect face-to-face with Art From Scrap, All At Once, and other local and national nonprofits.

Visit All At Once and Art From Scrap to check out what you can do before, during, and after the concert to get involved.
