Jack and Kim Johnson.

Kim Johnson and the Kokua Foundation were honored by the Environmental Protection Agency this week as a part of the Pacific Southwest region’s environmental awards program.

The Foundation was recognized for their work in the schools to promote recycling and environmental awareness. The AINA in Schools program kicked off in 2006 and addresses healthy eating habits and environmental stewardship for youth.

The Plastic Free Hawaii program provides resources and training to educate students about the health benefits of going plastic free to minimize the consumption of single-use plastics.

The Kokua Foundation was established by Johnson’s husband, musician Jack Johnson, in 2003. Kim Johnson is the foundation’s executive director.
