Street Interview with Seamus


Portland, OR

“Don’t limit yourself and follow your bliss. Even if things aren’t working out, you still have to stay happy…as long as what you do isn’t hurting anybody. Life’s not easy, but life’s great! To me, it wouldn’t matter if we were out here getting paid a penny a bottle, I’d still be doing this.”



Those anonymous faces we often see collecting bottles and cans out in the street make a huge impact in recovering wasted materials around the United States. They are getting their hands dirty usually only for a minimal amount of money, and brave all sorts of dangers (needle punctures, robbery, harmful bacteria, glass cuts, etc.). “Street Interviews,” the blog series on, explores why they do what they do, and the vibrancy behind their lives.
