Accessorize Your Life with Recycled Bike Products

Not only are bicycles the perfect mode of transportation to reduce carbon emissions and your carbon footprint, but they are also becoming one of the hippest items to recycle.

And when we say hip we mean that old bicycles parts are being used to create an amazing array of items, including jewelry and furniture. So that means less waste in our landfills and cooler things for us to reuse.

Ride a New Wave of Bikes

It really is encouraging to see how many things are being recycled today. Instead of being thrown into the trash, almost every part of a product can be reused to create something else.

These items are some of the most creative and original products made from bicycle parts that we found:

Now that you know what happens to recycled bikes, maybe one day you’ll be wearing or sitting on your old bike again.

    Great concept, and many thanks for taking the time to publish it; really opened my eyes for some new perspectives that I hadn’t thought of before.
