Like the idea? What can be better than transforming discarded bottles into graduation gowns rather than let them pile up in a land fill. A few days back we had seen how ECOALF [a fabric from recycled PET bottles] were used in making trolleys and bags that simply showed us the way to be a smart [eco-friendly]consumer. Similarly these gowns made from 100% post-consumer plastic shows another dimension of the recycling world.
Each gown is made from a fabric that utilizes 23 recycled PET bottles in the process. This new range of academic wearables is called the GreenWeaver and has been planned by Oak Hall Cap & Gown. These caps and gowns will look no different from those that are made of polyester and will be available in December. It gets serious enough to know that “if 100,000 students wore GreenWeaver gowns at their graduation, roughly 2.3 million plastic bottles would be kept out of the waste stream“.
So with the recent trend we hope to see more such products from recycled PET bottles.
