The Story of Stuff

​The Story of Your Stuff is a competition aimed at second-level students. Once you have picked your everyday object, consider what it is made of, how it’s made, what emissions are associated with it, where it could potentially end up when it is no longer of use or what could become of it when it's recycled properly. Alternatively, consider the impact an everyday activity has on the environment. Use the array of information, factsheets, and indicators on Ireland’s Environment, including the EPA state of the environment report itself to help you with your research.
