Gustavson Greenshifters

Peter B. Gustavson School of Business

Business students Rebecca Staynor, AJ Qin, Vincon Chen, and Jennifer Sallows, the Gustavson Greenshifters, have made it to the finals of the Walmart Green Student Challenge and go to Toronto to pitch their sustainable business idea in person to a panel of eminent Canadian CEOs Feb. 26. Their idea: to transform used chopsticks into oriented strand board. It will not only create a high-end building material from a free resource, but it will also create a positive “greenshift” in China by removing 45 billion chopsticks from the landfills. The winning team and their school will each receive $25,000.
