Congratulations soon to be Oakland University graduates!

In an effort to remain green on campus, all ­­­Oakland University graduates will be wearing environmentally conscious GreenWeaver® regalia, made here in the USA. This line of graduation wear is made of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets produced from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

Each year in the US more than 35 billion plastic water bottles are thrown away, enough to circle the Earth four times. Most end up in landfills or incinerators, and millions litter America’s streets, parks, and waterways. With an average of 25 plastic bottles being used to produce your cap and gown; you are helping to ensure a cleaner, healthier future for our planet.

Since 2011, Oakland University has helped to divert OVER 973,425 plastic bottles from landfills!
