To celebrate the partnership, Fat Joe will host a one-day, pop-up event at his iconic store in the Bronx, NY

Climate-conscious games marketplace PlanetPlay and creator of Avakin Life, Lockwood Publishing have partnered with GRAMMY-nominated recording artist Fat Joe to promote eco-consciousness in the gaming community. 

The initiative will bring forth a collection of in-game items and tangible merchandise, developed through a collaboration with Fat Joe. A portion of the profits generated will be donated to support global climate initiatives under the banner of PlanetPlay.

Fans can purchase both physical and digital products such as hoodies and t-shirts from October 11th via the in-game marketplace, which will be available along with a variable carbon emissions reduction starting at a minimum of 100 kg CO2. The design of each item will visually represent the quantity of carbon emissions reduced, allowing individuals to display their contributions toward a healthier planet. 

Fighting climate change 

Rhea Loucas, founder and CEO of PlanetPlay said, “We’re beyond humbled to have an international superstar like Fat Joe joining us in our mission to engage the gaming community and make green moves towards a healthier planet. Lockwood Publishing has been a tremendous partner in introducing our in-game items that support environmental initiatives, and this partnership with Fat Joe is taking it to the next level as we introduce an entire new collection of both in-game and physical items that will have a huge positive impact.”

“I really respect PlanetPlay and Lockwood Publishing’s unique and creative approach to supporting environmental sustainability,” said Fat Joe. “Together, we came up with an innovative way to bring fans new merch designs that will bring awareness to global climate initiatives and also help make a positive impact on our world.”

“Gaming can drive positive real-world change, and together with PlanetPlay and our amazing community we believe this initiative can do just that,” said Ivee Feria-Padua, Avakin Life product director. “Interacting with fresh and creative branded content is something which helps players further customize is key to helping players express their identities, and we’re delighted to be working with Fat Joe to bring this to Avakin Life, as well as supporting PlanetPlay’s crucial climate projects.”
