Ryan was invited to attend the 2017 CNN Heroes Tribute show in NYC on Dec 17th! He made a bunch of new friends and got to check out New York City for a few days. It was an awesome trip and the chance to meet so many inspirational people was amazing. We’ll never forget this trip. Thank you to everyone who sent all the nice emails to Ryan about his show appearance and thank you to the producers at CNN who made this happen for Ryan.

Today Ryan was featured on https://www.weareteachers.com/best-recycling-videos/
“Sometimes students just learn better from other students. Ryan Hickman is 8 and lives in California. Last year he went viral because of his passion for recycling. Since the age of 3, he’s recycled more than 270,000 bottles and cans, and regularly collects items from the beach on the weekends. Ryan is a great example that anyone and everyone can truly make a difference.”
This weekends adventure was in Austin, Texas and Ryan had a great time promoting recycling awareness with Valet Living as well as going to Dell to learn about their technology and about their recycling/sustainability efforts worldwide.
