re-ply • re-purposing a moment

our story

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

we have been intercepting them before they go to landfill

and using 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

and a new outdoor retail kit for the NYC winter

“When building Gramercy Tavern’s outdoor dining space, we were so glad to find a like-minded organization in re-ply, whose commitment to both sustainability and community aligns so closely with ours. Not only did re-ply intercept raw material otherwise destined for a landfill, they transformed it to create a beautiful new way for our guests to experience Gramercy Tavern”  

Rani Yadav, Chief Marketing Officer, Gramercy Tavern (Union Square Hospitality Group)

Thank you to the team at re-ply for their great initiative. We appreciate their attention to detail and creative approach in repurposing plywood and fabricating furniture to help restaurants with outdoor dining
