Helping students become Eco Heroes

SHARON — Teaching kids and adults to be “planet protectors” is the driving force behind the Eco Hero program developed by environmental economist Pamela Peeters of Sharon. Her mission is to work with students and others to help create a more balanced relationship with the planet and its resources.

It is as easy-going a morning as one can imagine on a cold weekend.

There was a Care Car, to help transport the elderly to doctors’ appointments. At one point there had been informational sessions offered at the center about addiction and alcoholism; there were programs for teens and children.
