Ryan’s Recycling

Savvy seven-year-old Ryan Hickman has set up his own recycling company in Orange County, California! Ryan was inspired to do something proactive in the fight against plastic pollution when he was just 3 years old after visiting a local recycling centre. 

‘Ryan’s Recycling’ has recycled over an estimated 200,000 cans and bottles over the years, saving over $10,000 for his college fund in the process. Not only has he revolutionized local attitudes towards recycling but he’s captured the imagination of millions through television appearances across American networks including The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Good Morning America.
