Following His Dream
Ryan first learned about recycling from his father. A short time later, Ryan began encouraging his neighbors, friends, and family to recycle and he shortly thereafter created his own business rounding up items for recycling. This business, Ryan’s Recycling Company, has continued to grow.
Today, Ryan’s goal is to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and how this helps the planet. Ryan has given interviews and appeared in countless publications and programs and has earned a long list of awards and recognitions for his work. He continues to make significant strides in his efforts to clean up the planet.

Long-Term Commitment to Help
Recycling is important because it redirects trash from landfills and from littering our homes and waterways and repurposes these materials into new and useful things. Recycling your bottles, cans, and paper and plastic items can make a major difference. Plastic is bad for the planet, so reusing the plastic we already have prevents the manufacture of even more plastic.
If you are looking for ways your business can make a difference beyond recycling, you can help the planet by offering eco-friendly reusable bags and promotional items made from recycled plastic and other eco-friendly materials. These promotional bags and items are environmentally-friendly partly because they are made from recycled content, but also because they reduce the need and use of single-use items, which can very likely end up as litter.
Ryan is doing amazing work and inspiring others along the way. We are so happy to see all of the great things he is doing for our environment by cleaning up plastic on the planet. Please stop by to help if you are able this Saturday or see if you can arrange to have Ryan pick up your recyclables if you are in Orange County, California.
