The Missing Link in Recycling

Graham Bergh and his team of gifted artisans in Mosier, Oregon make an amazing range of funky household items from tons of recycled bike parts. Each month they collect 3,000 pounds of used parts, drawing from 150 shops in 17 states. The pieces that still have life in them are donated to a local non-profit group that teaches bicycle repair to children. The ones that are beyond repair are polished and made into cool things like this bike chain picture frame; a treasure you can hardly tell is made of recycled material. Handmade in Oregon.

Graham Bergh

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. For the next three years, he tinkered with repurposing used bike parts, and in 1994 started Resource Revival.

Every year, this team of bicycle craftsmen collects thousands of pounds of used parts, drawing from bike shops nationwide, and revives them into home accents like bottle openers, frames and clocks.

"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. "Buying recycled products 'closes the loop' and helps keep used parts out of landfills." collection

            My boyfriends stepdad passed almost a year ago. Valentines Day is his birthday so I went the untraditional route. I got in touch with his mom for a picture of the two of them together. I'm hoping he loves the gift!! This is just an awesome frame, so heavy but so "like a guy". So glad I found your website.

            Product arrived a lot quicker than I thought. Didn't have the pictures printed yet. Can't wait to give it this weekend.

            I loved this frame since my boyfriend is a bicycle fanatic, so I bought it around the holidays, but saved it for Valentine's Day. I opened the package a couple days ago and printed a picture for the frame, but I am not thrilled because the back won't secure to the frame. I love the frame, but the huge gap between the frame and the backing could've been better. I am trying to figure out what to do so that I can still give to my boyfriend for Valentine's Day! I know he will love the frame, but I am worried about stability and this was not a cheap frame!
