Ryan Hickman is only 12 years old. However, he is already a prosperous businessman. The boy built his business on sorting waste and garbage.
And it is true. Today, Ryan is the owner of a recycling company. It’s called Ryan’s Recycling Company.
The business started when the child was only 3 years old. Then he and his father went to take the garbage from the household to the waste sorting station. Ryan liked this activity so much that he became interested in collecting and sorting used bottles.
By the way, this was the first earnings of the boy. When, after receiving the money, he returned home, he told his mother and father from the doorway that he would collect garbage in bags from their neighbors, sort it and take it for recycling.
The parents didn’t mind at all. Moreover, they supported their young son in such an important undertaking.
Because the preservation of nature and the creation of an ecologically clean space is an extremely important mission.
And who will do it, if not each of us?
Moreover, for Hickman Jr., money was in second place.
When Ryan was asked why he was doing this, the boy replied that empty bottles end up in the ocean, and marine animals diе because of them.
Six years have passed. Ryan did not get bored with this rather monotonous activity. After all, he sees in it a noble cause.
Over the years, he collected about two million bottles and earned $10 thousand.
The boy dreams of earning money for his further education in this way. He also wants to buy a truck so that he can collect more waste and recyclables and take it all for recycling.
He doesn’t mind becoming a professional scavenger at all.
Ryan admitted that he was not able to indifferently walk past a discarded candy wrapper, can or bottle. He also wants to be a positive example for other people.
Well, with his behavior and his work, Ryan Hickman proved that literally every resident of the city, even a three-year-old kid, can do a lot to make the ecological situation on our planet become healthier, cleaner.
