If you’re a good boy or girl, you do as you’re told and toss your bike helmet every couple of years (they’re supposed to weaken over time). But that styrofoam n’plastic head-hugger lives on like the baddie in a horror film, haunting our watershed and putting the fill in “landfill.” I did a little research, and beyond buying a WWII helmet at your local Army Surplus, this seems to be the eco-est:
Since the creation of the company, MET always made sure to act environment friendly in order to insure a durable development and also to protect the environment of the region around the production facility.
– The vapor used for the polystyrene expansion of the helmets is produced from a private source from MET from non drinkable water, so this way, we avoid to use precious drinkable water supply and the same water is re-used in other production phase and at the end to heat up the production facility and offices.
– All the production wastes are recycled for the plastic industry.
