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 pieces that still have life in them are donated to a local non-profit group that teaches bicycle repair to children. The ones that are beyond repair are polished and made into cool things like this bike chain picture frame; a treasure you can hardly tell is made of recycled material. 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.

              This frame is very well made and will make a unique gift for an avid bicyclist in the family. It was packaged very securely with the glass wrapped separately from the frame for shipping. I am considering buying the larger 5 x 7 frame as well.
