Eastern Michigan Grads To Wear Recycled Gowns Made Of Plastic Bottles

Talk about ‘Going Green’. Students at Eastern Michigan University will walk across the graduation stage wearing green gowns made out of 23 recycled plastic bottles. The gowns don’t crinkle like they’re made from plastic bottles. The fabric feels like “soft polyester.”

And it’s not just the fabric that’s environmentally friendly: the tack that fastens a button to the graduation caps is made from recycled metal.

Only the tassel and the gown’s zipper can’t be recycled. EMU first debuted environmentally friendly gowns for their commencement last year.┬áThe photo provided by Eastern Michigan University shows the graduation gowns being used by Eastern Michigan University at its Dec. 16 commencement.
