In the effort to remain green on campus, all UAB graduates will be wearing environmentally conscious GreenWeaver® regalia, made here in the USA. 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 2014, the University of Alabama at Birmingham has helped to divert OVER 470,825 plastic bottles from landfills!
If you want to rent doctoral regalia now, you can place your order here. In addition to the rental cost, there will be a refundable $200.00 hold fee charged. A call tag will be included in your package and when you are finished with the regalia you will mail back to Oak Hall no later than December 31, 2020. Upon receipt of the regalia, we will issue a refund for the $200.00 hold fee charge. If it is not returned by December 31, 2020, you will forfeit the deposit.
