Eco-Schools and the Pod joint ezine
Read all the latest goings on from Eco-Schools and the Pod in our joint online magazine.
These ezines are packed full of facts, tips and activities for learning about the environment, as well as case studies from other schools eco-work. We hope this interactive magazine will engage and enthuse students, both in and out of the Eco-Committee, about a range of environmental topics. Also included are important eco dates, competitions and quick links to sources of funding and offers.

There are some great activities too that will make the long summer holidays a lot less boring! We also introduce younger students to the latest friend of the Pod - Captain Busta! from Wastebuster.
