Episode Three: ‘The Story of Stuff’

The story of civilization is also the story of stuff; as societies have developed through the ages their use and demand for things and technology has developed in tandem.However modern society has developed to use resources unwisely. We’ve since learned that the current model of take, make and throw away is not sustainable and it’s destroying the planet.

This episode looks at a new way of viewing how we use our precious resources; the ‘circular economy.’ This new approach is spreading throughout Ireland and driven by grassroots community action and new business innovation.

In this episode Duncan will explore the economic, environmental and social benefits of using our invaluable resources wisely and visit the businesses and initiatives being born out of the concept of rethinking waste and explore how far we can go with this new story of stuff.
