The 'Grow It Yourself Helmet' is an eco-conscious accessory that is focused on blending sustainability with safety thanks to its naturalistic design. The helmet eliminates the need for plastic in the main portion of the design in favor of mycelium and hay, which makes it well-suited for safety and proper disposal after use. The low-cost helmet design makes it a favorable alternative to foam ones, while still providing impressive safety functions.
The 'Grow It Yourself Helmet' is the design work of Diego Mata and NOS Design, and was spoken on by the latter; "We have developed a helmet that can be made out of hay and Mycelium. It is 100% compostable, breathable, and impact resistant. The helmet reduces the use of plastics in a product that will be disposed of in a short time due to the child’s growth rate."
