Getting kids involved in the making of products they use is a great way to connect and give them a rewarding experience once they finished. Using organic materials that they can see grow is a better way to teach them about the importance of sustainability.
We have developed a helmet that can be made out of hay and Mycelium. It is 100% compostable, breathable and impact resistant.The helmet reduces the use of plastics in a product that will be disposed of in a short time due to the child's growth rate.
To develop this idea we partnered with Polybion, a company that developed Fungicel, a patent that uses Mycelium. A fungus that develops like a foam. Offering cushioning at the time of an impact.
