Jack Johnson to Award Santa Barbara Bowl for Sustainable Practices

Musician and environmentalist Jack Johnson will present the Santa Barbara Bowl with a custom water refill station in support of the his All At Once Sustainability Award, which recognizes venues making a strong commitment to green practices and the environment.

The Bowl is being recognized as a leader in venue greening, as well as for implementing best practices, piloting new initiatives and setting the stage for others to follow.

The Greening the Bowl campaign — to become the greenest music venue in the U.S. by decreasing the Bowl’s ecological footprint — aims at making the venue as close to carbon neutral as possible.

Recent greening initiatives include the removal of non-native plants, a bike valet service, solar power and the implementation of waste-diversion recycling and composting programs.

The Johnsons, some of the band and their team will gather alongside members of UCSB Plastic Pollution Coalition, Explore Ecology and Community Environmental Council Rethink the Drink on Tuesday, July 21 from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Santa Barbara Bowl to present the award and thank the bowl for all its dedication and hard work.

The Santa Barbara Bowl is located at 1122 N. Milpas Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93103, 805.962.7411.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
