Student spares landfill, one windshield at a time

For the past two years, Justin Kathan has owned and operated Manitoba-based DECO Windshield Repair, a service that provides expert windshield chip and crack repair within 15 minutes, often at no cost to the customer through comprehensive insurance coverage. Additionally the business saves thousands of windshields from landfills each year.

More recently, Mr. Kathan launched his second business - KuRV Apparel, a company that provides high-school students with an easy way to purchase, customize, and order graduation clothing.

He's also a full-time student at the University of Manitoba.
