This is Ryan posing for Recycle Me organ donation awareness!
Recycle Me just started to collaborate with the 4 Blind Mice a visual arts and illustration collective based in Nelson Mandela Bay, Port Elizabeth South Africa. Together we want to share knowledge and information about organ donation all around the world.

Ryan Allan is an illustrator from Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa. His primary interest is in how art, specifically street art and graphic novels, can be used as a tool for social change, and through the use of his 2-dimensional alter-ego "Sanjeev”, aims to communicate various environmental issues. He is currently a member of the 4 Blind Mice. 

Ryan is also a co-founder of the CREATIVExPE initiative, which aims to connect local artists, and build the creative community in the city through social events, workshops and creative collaborations.

The lungs are fantastic! The lungs bring in oxygen from the air and provide fuel for the blood cells.
How much oxygen does a person consume in a day?

The average adult at rest inhales and exhales something like 7 or 8 liters (about one-fourth of a cubic foot) of air per minute. That totals something like 11,000 liters of air (388 cubic feet) in a day.

The air that is inhaled is about 20-percent oxygen, and the air that is exhaled is about 15-percent oxygen, so about 5-percent of the volume of air is consumed in each breath and converted to carbon dioxide. Therefore, a human being uses about 550 liters of pure oxygen (19 cubic feet) per day.
