Reusable Shopping Bag Doubles As Emergency Helmet [Video]
In a natural disaster, you might see people putting on these eco-friendly totes.
Grappa is a dual-purpose eco-friendly shopping bag that can also be worn as a helmet in emergency situations. Designed especially to protect the user in earthquakes, the handy environment bag can also be conveniently folded to be carried anywhere. The bottom of the bag includes a layer of foam called EPS, which is the same material found in bike helmets and hard hats to absorb any impact from falling objects.
Tadashi Tanaka, a Press Director for the makers of Grappa, explains that:
We’d like to develop them further, based on ideas and purposes that customers suggest. We want to think more about their color, shape, design, size, and function, so we can improve their safety features in various ways.
