Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Jostens has given a second $10,000 donation to The Nature Conservancy in Minnesota, resulting from the company’s Elements Collection™, a line of caps and gowns made with biodegradable fabric tied to the company’s “Give-Back Program.”
Caps and gowns in the Jostens Elements Collection are made from fabric that is scientifically proven to completely biodegrade. The fabric used in the collection is a USDA certified biobased product and is made from wood sourced from renewable, managed forests. Even the packaging the gowns come in contains a material designed to facilitate the decomposing process. The collection saves green, but also gives “green,” in the form of charitable donations to environmental sustainability. Graduates who have purchased Elements Collection products have the opportunity to respond to Jostens and have the company donate $1 to a sustainability project.
