As a born and bred New York brand, Tombolo developed a new and deep admiration for the essential workers of the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) during the COVID-19 pandemic. When COVID-19 jeopardized food security for vulnerable New Yorkers, it was DSNY that stepped up with emergency food distribution for those in need – leading an effort that distributed over one million meals per day for weeks on end. This capsule is a celebration of the people who keep New York City safe, healthy, and clean.

Tombolo tips its cap to the largest municipal sanitation department in the world. Read more about our collaboration in our 'Sun Drunk Scrawlings' journal here

10% of proceeds from this collaboration support the Sanitation Foundation, an organization devoted to celebrating and supporting the essential Sanitation workforce and advancing the Department’s ambitious zero-waste agenda. Another 10% of proceeds from this collaboration support the City of New York via NYC & Company, an organization founded to maximize travel and tourism opportunities throughout the New York City, build economic prosperity and spread the dynamic image of New York City around the world.
