WE ARE ALL

 

PEOPLE FOR URBAN PROGRESS 

We are an Indianapolis-based not-for-profit. We advance connectivity, environmental responsibility, and good design. We rescue discarded materials, redesigning them for public benefit. Our locally-designed products fund big projects and big ideas that improve Indianapolis’ urban spaces. 

Simply put, we make GOODS FOR GOOD.

WHY

Our cities are full of meaning, each with its own character, culture, and mythology.

We're building a smarter Indianapolis, one that enhances these meanings and experiences by using resources and spaces we already have.

We love it here. Everyday, we aim to make it better and to make it happen.

 
 

PUP is a do-tank. We're urban hackers - a team of designers, makers, thinkers, and doers that rescue discarded materials, redesigning them so everyone can benefit. For us, innovation requires that we get our hands dirty. We love this stuff.

Here's what we're working on these days.
