V-Gard Green Safety Helmet
The V-Gard® GREEN Protective Helmet is the first industrial safety product produced from renewable resources. Like other hard hats, the MSA V-Gard GREEN Protective Helmet is made of green polyethylene (GPE). What's unique is that the GPE is manufactured from sustainable sugarcane-based ethanol. Even though the V-Gard GREEN is made from sustainable GPE, it still provides the same performance as resins made from nonrenewable raw materials, delivering the same high level of head protection that our V-Gard brand is known for worldwide.
