Chain Reaction

For all the times you can't travel by bike, mark your luggage with tags handmade from recycled bike parts. Comes with a durable paper contact info label and 6" steel wire fastener. Handmade by Graham Bergh and his team of gifted artisans in Mosier, Oregon.

Each month Graham and his team collect 3,000 pounds of used parts, drawing from 150 shops in 17 states. The parts that still have life in them are donated to a local non-profit group that teaches bicycle repair to children, but the ones that are beyond repair are made into cool things like this bike chain luggage tag.

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

            Comments about BIKE CHAIN LUGGAGE TAG:

            I thought this would be very durable. It isn't. There is no cover on the address label, so it can be overwritten or spilled on. Also, I haven't been able to get the fastener unlocked yet. It looks good, but isn't very practical.

                  Comments about BIKE CHAIN LUGGAGE TAG:

                  My husband is an avid cyclist and was thrilled to get this luggage tag. Although it is a little on the heavy side, it seemed very durable. Unfortunately the second time he used it, it disappeared during the flight. Although we don't know for sure what happened, we have to wonder if it just came unlatched due to handling by the airline or if some luggage handler liked it and was able to quickly detach it and keep it. Either way, it was definitely disappointing to spend the money on an item that so quickly disappeared.
