Sometimes teachers need a little pick-me-up… a boost to help them feel enabled and powerful and capable of doing amazing things! When it comes to sustainability in the classroom, it’s no different. Luckily, sustainability podcasts for teachers are the perfect things to give you that boost.

Despite knowing the importance of sustainability at school, the topic can often get overlooked amongst the jumble of a typical school day. To help you out, we’ve pulled together 4 of our favourite sustainability-focused episodes from our “For the Love of Teaching” podcast.

Our Top 4 Podcast Episodes on Sustainability

You haven’t heard sustainability talked about like this before! Take a listen to the ever-cheerful Bron as she chats with some in-the-know guests about all things “environmentally-friendly teaching”!

#3 Plastic-Free July!

It may not be July right now, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do your part to end plastic pollution! Listen on to this quick podcast as Bron chats with Teach Starter founder, Jill, about how teachers can be supported to be a little more sustainable.

#4 Maggie Dent on National Tree Day 2020
