Recyclable Gowns

Making a Difference One Gown at a Time!!

Barry University Bachelor and Masters graduates wear a gown that is totally recyclable. Each Eco-Friendly gown reduces the amount of material recycled by using 27 plastic bottles that will not end up in a landfill. Along with saving bottles from the landfill, each gown gives back to the Environment and introduces another avenue for sustainability.
