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 RECYCLED PENDULUM WALL CLOCK:

        My boss is really hard to buy for, but this clock combined his two favorite things! An avid cyclist who loves technology, this clock was the perfect gift, it now hangs in a place of honor in his "Man Cave", and he's been showing it off to the rest of his riding team. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the artist for supporting recycling by up-cycling bike parts and e-waste into something beautiful, functional, and unique!

          Comments about RECYCLED PENDULUM WALL CLOCK:

          Super cool clock - looks really nice mounted to the wall. Was worried that the pendulum was a "feaux pendulum" NOPE! It goes back and forth.

          Very nice gift item for a bicycle enthusiast, or a "granola" type of guy who can appreciate the recycled components.

          My Dad thought it was great, happy with the purchase. Happy BDay Dad!

            This clock is a great statement about how all good things don't go away they just change form. Plus its a cool piece of art and works well. I normally would not buy a clock without numbers but I couldn't pass this up.
