Handbags Crafted From An Old NFL Stadium
People for Urban Progress is an up-cycling program that tackles the waste problem of big demolitions
NFL stadiums are scrapped every few years in exchange for new ones. This means a lot of material goes to waste, as well as taxpayers’ money. An initiative called People for Urban Progress from Indianapolis has thought of other ways to deal with the debris.
Proceeds from these projects are donated to People for Urban Progress, which has converted stadium seats into bus stop and park amenities. The Teflon-coated roofing has also become sheds for bus stops. Other textiles not converted into bags are stored in a Fabrik Bank, a potential materials source for local artists.
