It proved to be a fateful visit, because the next day Ryan decided his future was in recycling. He visited his neighbors, collecting their recyclables and returning them. Four years later, he has stuck with it and grown recycling into a full-blown enterprise. read more here
Thank you to my friends at Busch Systems who sent me recycle bins (and a new shirt) all the way from Ontario, Canada! We’re going to drop one set at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center this weekend and the others will be replacing my old bins. I looked on their web site and they sure do make a lot of different types of bins.
Success from Bottles and Cans…Ryan’s Recycling
With Earth Day around the corner, we wanted to celebrate by talking about a little boy with a giant love of the environment.
Ryan Hickman is only 7-years-old and is already a successful businessman with his company Ryan’s Recycling.
Beyond making the Earth a greener place for people, Ryan makes sure to never forget about animals.
He has a specially designed shirt that all of the proceeds made are donated to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach!
