Students Don ‘Green’ Gowns


green

Graduating seniors are donning commencement gowns made of 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

The fabric used to make these gowns is spun from molten plastic pellets. It takes an average of 23 bottles to make each gown. That means that with more than 1,500 gowns sold at the University’s bookstores each graduation season, 34,500 bottles will be repurposed to create the regalia.

Other features of the regalia include:

  • Size labels stamped with soy ink.
  • The plastic bags used to store the caps and gowns are made from recycled plastic.
  • The shipping cartons are produced from recycled cardboard.
  • If students don’t want to keep their gowns after commencement, they can drop them off at the book- store to be recycled into new fabric.
  • They are softer to the touch and more breathable than traditional polyester fabric.
