Industrial designer, Pratt grad, and veteran dumpster diver Ben Gould’s material of choice is the bike chain, and he’s found his supply source. As old chains are discarded through repairs and new chains are shortened to fit specific bicycle configurations, Gould found that “The average bike shop produces 25-40 pounds of wasted chain PER MONTH!”
While all of that chain doesn’t go into the garbage—it’s typically shipped, with an associated cost, to a recycling facility to be melted down—Gould would prefer they be shipped to him, at his own cost, so he can turn them into jewelry.
