In the effort to remain green on campus, all Rutgers students will be wearing environmentally conscious GreenWeaver® regalia. This line of graduation wear is made of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets produced from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
Each day in the US more than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away. 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 2016, Universitywide, Rutgers has helped to divert OVER 1,429,100 plastic bottles from landfills!
You will pick up your Cap & Gown at the Rutgers Newark Bookstore the week of April 20, 2020.
**Please note group orders will not be accepted. Only one complete package may be purchased per order.**
