Sarufutsu Village / Koushi Chemical Industry – Protect Heads, and the Earth – SHELLMET


Scallops are the most eaten shellfish by Japanese people – and at the same time, the most discarded shellfish in Japan.
And we thought, “what if we could turn discarded scallop shells into a new resource?” From this question, this project has started.
Incorporating the special structure scallop shells have evolved to survive in the harsh natural world, shells that have protected themselves from external enemies are now reborn as something that protects human life, SHELLMET.
The more SHELLMETS are made, the cleaner the ocean becomes, as it tackles the problem of ocean discards in a new form of environmental conservation that protects the fishing industry.
