Re-Cycling

Since he was a kid, Graham Bergh has been making things out of found objects. After getting his Master's in Economics and Environmental Policy, he wanted to become an innovative recycling professional when he got a flat tire on his bike and said, "Hmmm...interesting material..." So he got to building creations by hand out of recycled bicycle parts, and soon gathered a team of artists to come up with new ideas and assemble the ideas they had. The results are distinctive accents like this bike chain bowl, which is perfect for keys, change and more. Handmade in Oregon.

“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.

    It's difficult to find a gift that is unique for the man that has everything. This bowl is being used by a mechanical employee and he will greatly appreciate it's different character!

        Even after the owner is 'gone' when family views it they will think of 'grandpa'.

        It's pretty heavy, you must be careful of scratches,dropping it, etc.

                I got this gift for an avid cyclist who has everything, she loved it!! It is a little small, but she keeps her keys and ipod in it on the counter, and it works great.

                  I purchased this bowl as a wedding gift for a couple, both of whom are competitive cyclists and also environmentalists. They absolutely loved it. They thought it was unique and classy and they put it right on their living room table. I was thrilled to find such a perfect gift for them.

                    I purchased this for my cyclist husband. It is attractive and unique yet very sturdy. He is using it as a bedroom catch all bowl. It works nicely for this and has a protective bottom so that it will not scratch the furniture.
