Graduation is a special day in life, and many people strive to look irresistible on it. Briton Will Radford (Will Radford) was able to surprise those present with an outfit at his graduation ceremony at the university. The guy came to the celebration wearing a garbage bag. And all because he didn't have enough money for an academic cap, a mantle and a cape.

The guy decided to find an alternative option and replaced the graduation outfit with a garbage bag. He believes that he has paid enough for the course of study, so he did not want to fork out for a mantle and a hat.

A suit from a garbage bag cost Will only 2 pounds (about 200 rubles). He completely covered his body, leaving only his hands and face outside.

Will told me that he hasn't been working anywhere for almost a year. He recently moved to a new place of residence, and he has only 100 pounds (about 10,000 rubles) left in his pocket. That's why the guy couldn't afford to buy a graduation gown. To pay for his studies, he borrowed 30,000 pounds (about 3 million rubles), but does not spare the money spent on education.

Meanwhile, the Philippine authorities decided to support the fight for the greening of the planet and adopted a new law obliging each graduate to plant 10 trees. Only after that, young people will be awarded diplomas or certificates.
