Bamboo Crash Helmet from Roof

We've featured a few different bamboo bikes here on TreeHugger before, and even bamboo clothing, but this combines both. The Roof R06 Bamboo is a motorcycle helmet made from bamboo slivers, that passes all the European E22/05 safety requirements for use on the road.

It's a special edition, so if you want to grab yourself a sustainable brain-protector, perhaps to go with your new hybrid Vespa, then you'd better move quickly. They should costs £189 when they come out later this month, which is a bargain for something that will possibly save your life as well as the environment. ::Motorcycle News
