We design and make  innovative shipping pallets that can be easily upcycled into sturdy sports equipment for kids in crisis zones worldwide.

 

Our Mission

We believe that access to sports equipment is a fundamental right that every kid in the world deserves, no matter what. 


Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury.
Play is a necessity.
— Kay Redfield Jamison, Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University

WHAT ARE PLAYPALLETS?

PlayPallets are a new take on the classic wooden shipping pallet. It's the same dimensions, made out of the same materials, and up to the same standards as traditional shipping pallets, but when a PlayPallet reaches a refugee camp at the end of its supply chain, the pallet is broken down and rebuilt into a solid piece of sports equipment.

Each PlayPallet contains everything necessary to build the equipment, including tools, hardware, accessories, and instructions in several languages. And every part of the pallet has a functional role in the transformation into the sports gear. 

All it takes is a bit of elbow grease and the hoops can be set up in a matter
Of minutes. Then kids will have a reliable area to play sports, form leagues and develop self-confidence, teamwork, and have fun.
