Resource Revival has made an amazing journey into the refurbished product business and it isn't just because they have saved over 100,000 pounds of used bicycle, automobile, and building parts from landfills.
The company offers everything from tea light holders ($24), auto clocks made from an automated gear ($29) to round wine racks designed from bicycle rims and industrial garage door springs ($185).
Since 1994, the company has been making these unique products in Portland, Oregon. The materials and their products are as unique as the artists who design them.
If you are concerned about protecting the environment, everyone knows the best way to secure a healthy living area is to consider recycling projects.
The site has virtually something for everyone on your gift list this season. If you don't want to spend too much money, visit the "Under $40" section for candlesticks or business card holders. For those you want to spend a little more money on, check out the $50 to $100 category, which offers items like the automotive chain frame and steel bike rim CD rack.
The new desktop CD rack ($88) was most impressive. The 20" x 7" design allows it to hold 40 CDs, making it ideal for a software storage or adjacent to a small boom box for musical CDs.
Resource Revival is a great place to visit for that unique gift this holiday season. For more information, visit their Web site at
