A St Albans school has launched an eco-podcast, after the location was awarded Green Flag status.

The Samuel Ryder Academy's 'Eco-Pod' is the school's first ever podcast, and will allow students to educate others on the change they want in their world.

The first episode has been presented by Sixth Formers Anna, Ben and Mia, and discusses a variety of issues on the topic of sustainability.


Episode one of the Eco-Pod can be viewed via the Scholars' Education Trust website (www.scholarseducationtrust.co.uk).

The episode also discusses the school's partnership with 'Home Run', a sustainable travel company.
