MSA has developed the world’s first “green” protective hardhat manufactured using green high-density polyethylene (HDPE) sourced entirely from sugarcane ethanol. Developed by MSA in Brazil, the V-Gard GREEN hardhat meets the company’s performance standards, as well as those defined by ANSI Z89.1 and CSA Z94.1. Green high-density polyethylene is also 100 per cent recyclable in the same stream as conventional HDPE, making it suitable for reuse in non-safety products. www.msasafety.com
