Commencement will find all students wearing regalia made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles! Fewer plastic bottles will be choking our landfills because, for every Benedictine University student walking at Commencement, an average of 23 plastic bottles was used to manufacture their cap and gown.
In the effort to remain green on campus, the line of graduation wear - named GreenWeaver - is made of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets. With some 60 million plastic bottles going into U.S. landfills every day, Benedictine University is helping to turn trash into keepsakes.
You have two ways of getting your regalia this year:
Online orders must be placed by March 7, 2018, if shipping for pick up at Graduation Fair.
Undergrad orders must be placed by April 17th if shipping to home address.
Graduate orders May 18th if shipping to home address.
Graduation Fair is being held on Wednesday, April 4th.
Congratulations again, and we wish you the best of luck with your new adventures.
