At Commencement 2019, our students will be wearing regalia made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles!
In our latest effort to go green on campus, MICA has adopted a new line of eco-friendly graduation regalia -- GreenWeaver. Each gown is made from an average of 23 recycled plastic bottles. That means 23 fewer plastic bottles choking our country’s landfills for each gown made!
The GreenWeaver regalia is made of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets. With some 60 million plastic bottles going into U.S. landfills every day, we’re helping to turn trash into keepsakes.
