Pollution of the planet with plastic is fraught with a catastrophe, the scale of which is difficult to calculate. Today we want to tell you an incredible story about a 9 year old boy who collected 500,000 bottles.
A guy named Ryan Hickman is already a successful businessman, and he built his business on garbage sorting. At the moment, he has his own recycling company – Ryan’s Recycling Company. It all started when he was only three years old.
Once he went with his dad to take his garbage to the sorting station. Ryan liked this process so much that he decided to collect garbage from his neighbors, sort it and send it for recycling. Of course, the parents supported their son in such an important matter.
When the boy is asked why he does this, he replies: “The bottles end up in the ocean and the animals die because of it.” Six years have passed, but Ryan has not given up this noble occupation. During this time, he collected about 500 thousand bottles and earned 10 thousand dollars. The boy admits that he cannot get past even an abandoned candy wrapper.
His dream is to earn money for his education, as well as for a truck so that he can collect more recyclables and send them for recycling. He wants to become a garbage man. By his act, he proved that every person, even a small, three-year-old boy, can make a huge contribution to improving the ecology on our planet.
