The Missing Link in Recycling

Graham Bergh and his team of gifted artisans in Mosier, Oregon make an amazing range of funky household items from tons of recycled bike parts. Each month they 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 bottle opener. Handmade in Oregon.

Artist card included.

“We envision a sustainable future where consumers are conscious of the origin of the food they eat, the energy they consume, and the products they buy.”

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. Three years later, he started his own company focusing on reviving and refashioning spent bike gear.

Every year, Graham and his team of bicycle craftspeople collect thousands of pounds of used parts, drawing from bike shops nationwide. The pieces that still have life in them are donated to a local non-profit group that teaches bicycle repair to children, and the ones that are beyond repair are made into edgy home accents and accessories.

"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.

Love this inexpensive gift for my sister. She is not one who likes to aquire much so it is hard to find a gift that is practical, small, and still exciting and different. I figured the bike chain would be rigid for some reason and like it even better since it is flexible and would fit in pocket or backpack for someone who might throw some beers in a backpack, hop on a bike and go for a booze cruise. :) Thanks Uncommon Goods, my new favorite shop!

I bought this for a friend who is both a bike messenger and a bartender. I know the flexible bike chain makes it too hard to use in the bar, but the opener is a fun thing to have at home and to use for the occasional beer. Bonus points for using recycled materials
