Commencement exercises go green this year at Babson College in Wellesley, MA. 

Caps and gowns are eco-friendly, made from 100 % post-consumer, recycled plastic bottles.  The fabric is spun from molten plastic pellets; each gown takes an average 23 bottles to make–roughly 20,700 fewer bottles destined to landfills.

Babson’s Commencement  is tomorrow May 15th at 10:am for the Undergraduate Ceremony and 2:30 pm for the Graduate Ceremony.
