June 3, 2019 | Ryan Hickman, Founder of Ryan’s Recycling
At only 9 years old, Ryan Hickman has big dreams of saving the planet (and feeding those California sea lions) one bottle and can at a time. We talked to Ryan about how $5 from his first trip to a recycling facility turned into a huge passion, how his family helps with Ryan’s Recycling, his successful beach cleanups, and how this helps him master math and geography. Oh and how he met Ellen DeGeneres and took over Lebron James’ Instagram story. (true story!) Get ready to be inspired by this young entrepreneur.
