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