Make Time for Recycling

In 1991, Graham Bergh got a flat tire and used the flat inner tube to hang his stereo speakers. Intrigued with the notion of reviving discarded bicycle parts, he and his artisan friends in Portland, Oregon, started creating functional products from recycled bike parts and other rescued materials. This Hybrid Wall Clock is a prime example - it's made using mirror-like hard discs harvested from discarded computers and combined with bicycle chain rings. It's wall mountable and operates on a single AA battery. You'll get great mileage out of this clock and feel good in knowing that you're doing your part in keeping America litter-free!

Due to the reclaimed nature of the hard discs, the color may vary. We apologize for any inconveinence.

Artist card included.

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