One young mans fight against plastic pollution

Ryan is an amazing young man. With hundreds of millions of items of plastic entering circulation every year, and over 80% of it reportedly never recycled, it’s no wonder we have a major plastic pollution issue on our hands. Ryan decided to do something about this from the age of just three. Now aged seven, Ryan has sorted recyclables that have been donated by friends, family, neighbours each week and makes regular trips to the local recycling center in Orange County, California. So far, he has recycled over 200,000 bottles and cans and donated lots of money to charity.

Plastic pollution is a very real problem for whales and dolphins, and for us. Plastics never biodegrade, they just become smaller pieces of plastic. These microplastics are ingested by fish and plankton and end up in the bellies of the whales and dolphins who feed on them. It can even end up inside us!
