Every now and then I run across people/businesses/stories that are just so inspiration it helps keep me going and makes me want to share it with everyone! Well, what better place than a blog right? I’ve shared other businesses before but this post will be all about one little seven year old boy’s recycling business!

Starting at the very old ripe age of 3.5 years Ryan began recycling cans and bottles. I can definitely imagine a little boy having tons of fun putting in the cans and bottles into the recycling machine and getting some mule for his efforts. Fast forward 3.5 years later and Ryan has started his own company and has even been on the Ellen show! His company has also been featured in several publications and to date he’s made over $10,000 recycling cans and bottles alone!!! What an incredible story. Ryan’s goal is to buy a garbage truck for his business but his parentals are thinking it’s more for a college fund.

He’s already accomplished so much by the age of 7!

If you live in Orange County, California you can schedule Ryan to pick your cans and bottles! Either way check out his website below.

Another thing you can do to help out is to buy a Ryan’s Recycling t-shirt with proceeds going towards the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach, California.

It’s pretty rare to hear about someone so young doing something so big! If a seven year old can do this to make the world better, what’s stopping us?
