AJC Says: Wecycle Atlanta Growing Communities, Healthier Kids!

By Rick Badie
Some days, Holderness Street in Southwest Atlanta gets flooded with so many kids riding bikes that it reminds Shawn Deangelo Walton of a "mini Singapor". 

He's partly to blame for the popularity of two-wheeled activity, thanks to a civic-minded small business he started to introduce youngsters to the joy of cycling and gardning. Walton is the founder of Wecycle Atlanta, an operation that stresses WHEELS: Work Ethic, Health, Environment, Economics, Leadership and Sustainability. It does so by giving young people in West Atlanta access to bikes, fresh produce and, of course, cycling!
