Although the graduates’ caps and gowns will look the same, they aren’t.
This year, the College showed its commitment to sustainability by using a new line of eco-friendly graduation wear
made from 100 percent, post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. With millions of plastic bottles ending up in landfills daily and remaining there for generations, the academic apparel manufacturer Oak Hall introduced its new GreenWeaver line
, which uses 23 bottles per gown.
