Every member makes a contribution
We’re serious about supporting our planet. Your membership supports FATMAP Explore sustainability initiatives.
Protect our winters
We all need winter.
The past decade has been the warmest on record. 2018 was the hottest year ever recorded and 2019 is already on track to top it. Meanwhile, the northern hemisphere has already lost a million square miles of spring snowpack since 1970—an area three times the size of Texas. Snow levels are rising in elevation and winters are shorter. Climate change is already affecting winter.
Right now, we get to help dictate the outcome rather than react to a foregone conclusion.
1% for the planet
Our planet needs us.
Members of 1% for the planet give directly to approved nonprofits of their choice and they certify this giving annually. Direct giving helps put dollars in the hands of doers quickly and efficiently and 1% for the Planet provides expert guidance.
The organisation was started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, the founder of Blue Ribbon Flies.

Our plans to contribute
As well as supporting existing projects and organisations, we’re working on our own initiatives to help people understand how they can make changes to their daily lives that will have a positive impact on our planet.
We believe in education and action. So we will start by hosting events around the world, bringing together FATMAP Explore partners to provide free education and support to those who want to support our planet.
Our first event will be in London, spring/summer 2019.
