our story

thousands of sheets of plywood were installed to protect shops in NYC during lockdowns and protests

we're intercepting them before they go to landfill

we want to use them for good

we designed a sidewalk dining kit of parts for COVID embattled restaurants and bars in NYC

with subsidized tables, seating, planters and dividers to help meet the New York DOT Open Restaurants Criteria

a portion of the proceeds supports the charity 'Children of Promise'
