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.

Showa Best Glove
Green-Dex with Eco Best Technology
The inventors of the world’s first disposable nitrile glove, N-DEX, now bring you the world’s first biodegradable disposable nitrile glove, Green-Dex. Showa Best Glove’s Research & Development reaches a major breakthrough with Eco Best Technology (EBT). EBT accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills and anaerobic digesters as validated by independent certified laboratories using internationally recognized test methods. EBT is composed of organic materials designed to make GREEN-DEX attractive to microbial activity. These microorganisms upon consuming the EBT material excrete enzymes that depolymerize the nitrile. The final result is biogases and inert humus.
