Work with the NFL to salvage and
repurpose vinyl banners, fence wrap, and
graphics from Super Bowl XLVI.
Our best guess is that we diverted nearly 5 miles of fabric from a local landfill. Our designers continue to develop products and projects using the vinyl and polyester fabrics that once adorned Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center.

This one was intense. Just under two weeks before Indianapolis' Super Bowl XLVI, PUP was contacted by the NFL regarding the salvage of all the fabric, vinyl, and fence wrap that was installed throughout Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center. Early communication with the NFL indicated that we'd be receiving 8 palette boxes of fabric. As such we were surprised when 49 showed up at our warehouse - an estimated 5 miles of material!
Since then, we've incorporated the fabric into our existing product line. And we've found a few homes for it out in the community, including room dividers for The Platform at the Indianapolis City Market.
