Music Lovers Enjoying Concert and Going Green at Annual Festival

WAIKIKI (KHNL) - People at the Waikiki Shell enjoy some sweet music and going green for the environment.

It's all part of the annual Jack Johnson Kokua Festival.   The concert started at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon with artists like Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Ernie Cruz Junior and of course, Jack Johnson.   In addition to the concert, environmental groups are promoting earth-friendly products and educating the public on how to keep our planet green.

"We've got tons of volunteers with us today from Kamehameha Schools and they're helping us to recycle everything on site.  They've been great volunteers for the past 4 years and we're trying to green the event in several other ways too," said Kokua Hawaii Program Director, Kaliko Amona.

Event organizers tried to get people to ride their bikes to the concert instead of driving.   Everyone who rode to the Shell was entered in a raffle for prizes.
