WATCH: 7 years old and he’s recycled over 200,000 bottles

Ryan's recycling

Ryan is doing more for the environment than you are. 7 years old and he’s already recycled 220,000 bottles in his lifetime. He’s the President of his own recycling company. Ryan is a hero.

 

In 2012 at the age of 3, Ryan went along with his dad to the local recycling center and cashed in a few small bags of cans and bottles and decided that recycling was in his future. The day after going to the recycling center, Ryan notified his mom and dad that he wanted to give empty plastic bags to all the neighbors and maybe they would save their recyclables for him. Not only did the local neighbors save their cans and bottles for Ryan but so did their friends, families and co-workers. Today, Ryan has customers all over Orange County, CA and he has a passion to recycle that is amazing. Ryan spends a part of every week sorting thru cans and bottles from his customers and getting them ready to take to the recycle center.
