In today’s climate of being encouraged to reduce our carbon footprint and damage to the environment, recycling is one way towards decreasing our waste. By choosing to cycle we’re already doing a bit towards reducing our carbon footprint (if we gloss over the tendency for us to put bikes in cars and planes to ride in interesting places…), and for the particularly green-minded cyclist comes Rebycle.
Rebycle offers unique gift and promotional items made from, alas, recycled bicycle parts. Whether you’re looking for a great gift idea for a bike-mad friend or relation, or just looking for the perfect picture frame to display your event photos, Rebycle will have something to fit the bill perfectly.
Top of the list of their best seller items is the recycled bike chain bottle opener. At £7.99 it’s fun and friendly without breaking the bank. Other, equally interesting products, are the candle holders made out of freewheels and cogs, chain keyrings, but our pick has to be the classy CD/DVD rack, made from old rims and chain rings.
Following the collection of tons of discarded bicycle parts every year from bike shops and bike owners nationally, the bike parts are cleaned using very mild detergents. They are sorted into more categories than you can possibly imagine, and crafted into the cool products you see on their website.
