The clever artisan recyclers at Resource Revival craft clocks, picture frames, key chains, bowls, and even jewelry from discarded bicycle chains, gears and wheels. In doing so, they lighten the load going to landfills as well as the cost of unwanted parts disposal for cycling shops all over the United States.
The company holds the modest vision of a world built upon sustainability, flourishing commerce, renewable energy, and conscientious consumers who are mindful of where things come from.
I’d say that’s a worthy dream. Who knows? Maybe reusing bicycle parts is just the vehicle to get there!
If you happen to own a cycling shop and want to become a rebicycler, Resource Revival will pay shipping costs for the parts you send. This means you don’t have to pay to send stuff to the dump! If you aren’t a cycling shop, but want to find one that participates in the scheme, you can search for one by zip code.
