Greener Grads has a new web site and animated PSA. For nearly 30 years gowns have been manufactured with synthetic petroleum-based, non-biodegradable material and are either located in the back of closets or in landfills.
The graduation industry has been controlled by three industry giants with virtually no competition. Mass producing polyester gowns is inexpensive, but the destruction to the environment and financial burden for students and families can’t be ignored. Greener Grads has figured out a clever way to recover, reuse, repurpose and recycle gently worn graduation gowns.
