PUP x AMTRAK: BUCKLE UP. THIS IS AWESOME.
Over the next several months, we're transforming 6,080 leather Amtrak seats into a new line of PUP products. See how we're doing it here.

BATCH 01: THE FIRST THREE MEMBERS OF THE AMTRAK COLLECTION
PEOPLE FOR URBAN PROGRESS is a 501c3 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 our city's 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.
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.
