One great thing about the Bike Co-op is that nothing goes to waste. Abandoned bikes are fixed up and given new homes with owners that will appreciate them, and clunkers are gently dismantled and recycled into replacement parts and even reassembled into completely new two-wheeled marvels. But what about when the parts are beyond repair?
greenUPGRADER, a green blog dedicated to exploring ways to “upgrade to a greener lifestyle” recently featured Becky Stern’s detailed video tutorial on making a headband out of a spent bike tube.
Her tutorial is based on one for making a chain link leather necklace, but in a stroke of genius she subbed a blown bike tire for the leather. The results are stunning! Check out the video here.
