BU recently published an article featuring Greg Stoller and Susan Fournier, discussing the five students who made it to the finals of a Questrom sustainability competition.

The five BU students participated in a semester-long competition, geared toward environmental sustainability, that featured entries from 62 teams from a dozen universities across Massachusetts and Connecticut.

The Questrom team’s focus revolved around reducing waste during Allston Christmas, a time when off-campus students vacating apartments overflow neighborhood sidewalks with furniture and household items that they have abandoned – a burden on landfills, traffic, and garbage pickup costs for unacclaimed items. Their proposal wasn’t enough to claim victory, though Casella Waste Systems were impressed with the finalists’ ideas. Fournier states, “The competition aspires to create actionable solutions for pressing sustainability challenges facing our communities and our world.”
