The Walton Sustainability Solutions Festival encourages, rewards, and celebrates inventors, entrepreneurs, designers and creative thinkers who develop solutions to sustainability challenges. Through a partnership with Changemaker Central@ASU and 10,000 solutions, on Tuesday, April 9 the Sustainability Solutions Showcase rewarded $5,000 in prizes to three financially viable ideas that solve a multifaceted sustainability problem.
Five finalists, limited to 5-minute presentations, provided a fast-paced evening of intriguing ideas as they pitched their innovative sustainability solutions to a panel of esteemed judges and a live audience.
Congratulations to our winners:
First Place ($2,500): Flash Food
Second Place ($1,500): SitGreen Furniture
People’s Choice ($1,000): Rick Olson’s Autoclave Water Reclamation
