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.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“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.

    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.

        This was a gift for my husband's birthday. He is a bike enthusiast and difficult to buy for. This was a great gift, and was the hit of the party. It's bigger and heavier than I expected-very good quality and an interesting piece.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Arrived very quickly and in great condition.

            If you need a great gift for a man, this unique bowl is a good choice. Also, my brother refuses any gifts from China and prefers made in USA so Uncommon is my go to place for Xmas. He LOVED this bowl.

            I purchased this for my brother who is notoriously hard to shop for. I never know what to get for him, so many times I end up getting him cologne or candles. Well I came across this bowl and thought it was so unique. I like that its welded in spots on the bottom so it won't unravel. This is not a "cheap" bowl. It is very heavy and durable, so I know it will last. My brother said he loves it. He said he's using it to store his keys and pocket change. Great idea adding the cork bottom as well!

                  My fiancé is an outdoorsman who enjoys all forms of bikes from mountain biking to powerful Ducati's and he constantly empties his pockets all over our house when he comes home from work. I saw this bowl and thought it would be perfect for him to keep all his pocket junk in 1 place.
