WE ARE ALL PEOPLE FOR URBAN PROGRESS
Made from the city by the city. PUP's products are designed and hand-built in Indianapolis using salvaged materials and local talent. For us, 'used' does not mean unusable. We're remaking waste, one product at a time.
PEOPLE FOR URBAN PROGRESS is a non-profit that advances good design and civic sustainability by developing products and projects in connectivity, responsible reuse, and making.
PUP is creating a smarter, more sustainable, and more resilient city by combining good design with existing resources. We are stewards of Indianapolis’ resources and curators of its public spaces.
COMMUNITY + COLLABORATION
PUP is a non-profit social enterprise that aims to utilize smart and lean business tactics to bring the change we want to see in our city. We don't have a one-for-one model, as all of our work - from salvage through design and fabrication - is philanthropic at heart. Each PUP product is built by hand, with several people working together to clean, cut, stitch, and tag each item.
