Winners of 2018 The Story of Your Stuff competition

This is the second year the EPA has hosted their secondary school competition, The Story of Your Stuff.  Dr Easkey Britton, five-time Irish national surf champion, was chosen as the ambassador for this year’s campaign. Students were asked to submit stories about the life cycle of an everyday object with an underlying theme of recycling and sustainability.  The submitted entries focused on everything from wellies to wheels. The judges were impressed with the entrants’ ability to approach the competition with a creative and refreshing perspective.
