Singer-songwriter Jack Johnson and his wife have been handed a major Hawaiian award for their efforts to improve their home state.
The Hawaiian-born musician and his wife Kim have been given Kanu Hawaii's Kuleana Award, which is given to individuals who have inspired change in others and in their community through their own demonstrations of personal responsibility and accountability.
The couple founded the Kokua Hawai'i Foundation in an effort to improve environmental education in Hawaii.
A statement from Kanu Hawaii reads, "As a team, Jack and Kim model stewardship, compassion, and living lightly on the earth. They live a simple lifestyle, eat from their own garden, and devote lots of quality time to their children and their North Shore community.
"Jack's music has introduced people around the world to island values of environmental stewardship... and profits from his tours support local and global environmental work."
