V-Gard® GREEN hard hat made from sugarcane reduces environmental impact 

CenturyVallen, a national supplier of safety and industrial MRO products and services, is excited to announce that it is now selling the world’s first “green” protective hard hat manufactured from sugarcane.

“It is our responsibility as a supplier and as a good corporate citizen to carry and distribute products and services that are beneficial to the environment,” said Rod Smith, vice president, Sales and Marketing, CenturyVallen. “The new V-Gard® GREEN hard hat is a perfect example of such a product, and we are proud to distribute it.”

Unlike conventional hard hats manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) sourced from petrochemicals, the V-Gard GREEN hard hat from MSA is manufactured using “green” HDPE (GHDPE) sourced from sugarcane ethanol.

Through the natural process of photosynthesis, sugarcane cultivation captures CO2 from the atmosphere, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For every ton of GHDPE produced, 2.5 tons of CO2 are captured from the atmosphere.

The V-Gard® GREEN hard hat is now available at CenturyVallen. For more information about the hard hat or about CenturyVallen, please visit www.centuryvallen.com.
