BRISTOL — Eight-year-old Ethan Tanych decided to save the oceans from plastic two years ago, when he saw a video in his kindergarten health class.

“He came home from school one day talking about plastic bags floating in the ocean, hurting animals,” said his mom, Emily Tanych.

At the very same time, Ethan was also participating in the Expanded Learning Program’s Mini Marketers project at Bristol Elementary School, in which kids got to create their own jobs, Emily Tanych said.

What did Ethan want to do when he grew up?

The effect makes prominent the word “Us.”

Look for it. You’re about to see it everywhere.

By Vermont’s net-metering standards, which allow for arrays up to 500 kW, this would be a relatively modest project, occupying less than an acre of land, said GLS Director of Development Ralph Meima.
