Ellen heard about a 7 year old looking to make a difference on this planet. Ryan, founder of Ryan’s Recycling Company, stopped by the show to talk about his goal of recycling. He collects cans and bottles in his neighbourhood and takes them to a local drop off…and gets paid! The money raised ends up going back to another amazing cause, which is a Sea Lion rescue group, providing them food and medicine.
Ellen surprised the young entrepreneur with a $10,000 check for his business! He said he was saving up to get a garbage truck so he can collect MORE recyclables.
