Washington DC trip

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This week I took a quick trip with my friend Mitch Hedlund from Recycle Across America and my dad to Washington DC. We had a day of pouring rain and I got to visit my friend Mason for dinner who is going to college at George Washington University. I met with a lot of Congress representatives and their staff about the importance of recycling and using standardized bin labels but my favorite part of the trip was meeting Congressman Alan Lowenthal and learning how the voting works on the house floor.

I also learned there are underground tunnels between the capitol building and the buildings where all the reps work so they can get between the buildings easily. On the flight home, I asked the flight crew to give me the plastic bottles and aluminum cans so I could recycle them instead of them going into the landfill with the trash.

The Greater Irvine Chamber hosted their 40 under 40 awards tonight and I was super proud to be recognized as a future leader. Thank you to all the people who came up to me and said hi and I’m really proud of my Congressional Recognition Certificate. How cool is that?!  Thank you Jay Ware from Ware Disposal for introducing me and thank you to everyone in Orange County who supports Ryan’s Recycling.
