EcoHelmet is an inexpensive folding helmet that can be purchased onsite and recycled when at the end of the ride. Constructed from a waterproofed recycled paper in a radial honeycomb pattern, EcoHelmet absorbs blows from any direction as effectively as traditional polystyrene. It folds flat for easy vending and fits most head sizes. EcoHelmet is designed to give cyclists the confidence they need to ride safely in the city. The unique honeycomb structure absorbs impact by spreading the blow evenly around your head in case of a crash. When not in use it folds flat– flatter than any other helmet on the market in fact. Styrofoam helmets take over 500 years to break down and never really decompose; this one has been designed to be recycled right back into more helmets after use. A winner of the 2016 International James Dyson Award, the EcoHelmet has plans to launch in 2017.
