Re-Cycling

Since he was a kid, Graham Bergh has been making things out of found objects. After getting his Master's in Economics and Environmental Policy, he wanted to become an innovative recycling professional when he got a flat tire on his bike and said, "Hmmm...interesting material..." So he got to building creations by hand out of recycled bicycle parts, and soon gathered a team of artists to come up with new ideas and assemble the ideas they had. The results are distinctive accents like this bike chain bowl, which is perfect for keys, change and more. Handmade in Oregon.

“We envision a sustainable future where consumers are conscious of the origin of the food they eat, the energy they consume, and the products they buy.”

In 1991, Graham Bergh was riding his bike to his recycling job when he got a flat. Being a savvy recycler, he took the inner tube and made a cradle for his stereo speakers. Three years later, he started his own company focusing on reviving and refashioning spent bike gear.

Every year, Graham and his team of bicycle craftspeople collect thousands of pounds of used parts, drawing from bike shops nationwide. The pieces that still have life in them are donated to a local non-profit group that teaches bicycle repair to children, and the ones that are beyond repair are made into edgy home accents and accessories.

"We envision a sustainable future where commerce flourishes in a world powered by renewable energy, and where consumers are conscious of the origin of the food they eat, the energy they consume, and the products they buy," says Graham.

                There is no size given in the description and the picture does not reflect the size very well. This is a BIG bowl. It is 10" across. A standard dinner plate is 9", so that you have a comparison. While very nice-looking and well-made it is not a small little change or key bowl. Size should be indicated on the website.

                  This was the perfect gift for someone who has everything! The bowl was very well made and the piece of cork was a nice addition to put on bottom of bowl to prevent scratching surfaces.

                      I saw this and thought it would be perfect for a good friends birthday. Kind of a different person ... it just had to be really different. He has keys, change, little things all over his counter. Thought he'd use the bowl for that kind of stuff. He picked it 4-5 times and said he really liked it. I was pleased!!!. Service was OUTSTANDING. I will be back.
