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 CHAIN BRACELET:

      The love of my life had been training for the MS150 which is a two-day charity cycling bike ride to benefit multiple sclerosis. This was his first event of such and a great personal challenge for him! His bicycle was his best friend for 6 months while training! I thought that this would be the PERFECT gift AND good luck charm to send him on the dangerous highway! HE wholeheartedly fell in love as it was applicable and meaningful to his personal accomplishment! By the Grace of God and this "good spirited" bracelet he excelled without hurt, harm or danger! Soooo thankful for Uncommon goods for this product!

        Went with the small size because I have tiny wrists, and it fits perfect. Nice and clean with just the right amount of wear to it.

                I purchased the large bracelet since it was a gift for a man. It fits him perfectly. He is an avid bicyclist and was very pleased with this piece. He had not seen them online and asked where I bought it. He has come to Uncommon Goods and purchased the other chain products for himself. The chain itself was very clean and polished. The clasp was easy to open and connect and close with one hand. This gift was a winner!

                Service and delivery comments:

                I ordered this on a Wednesday, received a confirmation email in about 15 minutes. The next day I received another email stating the item had been shipped and received it on Friday. Amazing. It was packaged in a vacuum sealed pouch and arrived intact. Thanks Uncommon Goods!
