Balfour understands that every institution and commencement event is unique, and that one regalia solution does not fit every institution. That’s why we offer two environmentally-responsible, green solutions designed to perfectly fit your needs. Choose from these outstanding green solutions:


Over the course of its lifespan, one reusable Balfour rental gown represents 45 pounds of souvenir gowns that would otherwise end up in landfills. Through our sustainable cycle, our rental gowns have kept 5.25 million pounds of waste out of landfills in the past decade. Reusing gowns drastically reduces the impact that the manufacturing process places on the environment. Our environmentally friendly rental program eliminates disposable gowns altogether, keeping the waste of souvenir gowns out of the landfill. Balfour gowns are made from long-lasting beautiful fabrics guaranteed to look great on your graduation day. These rental gowns are also available in a wide selection of colors.

Souvenir Ultragreen™

Our environmentally friendly UltraGreen™ gown is a lightweight, crease-resistant, environmentally friendly fabric choice. Available in an industry-leading eight color selections (just because you want to be green doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your school’s colors), UltraGreen™ gowns are composed entirely of 100% post-consumer recycled PET bottles—soda or water bottles that would otherwise end up in landfills. From the materials we source and use in gown manufacturing, to our unique gown rental programs, to selecting vendors that lead the industry in renewable energy initiatives (for example, Ingenco Design, a company that harvests methane gas to run their plants), Balfour has been a pioneer and industry leader in sustainable resource management – our many shades of green.

If you have trouble finding your school, please try the following tips:

  1. Search by school name and city. Example, "washington high dallas".
  2. Search by school zip code. For example, instead of the school name you can search by the school's zip code. Beverly Hills High School could be located by searching "90210".
