I just wondered that if they can make packaging from compressed straw, they could do similarly with bike helmets

Probably the medium is rather too variable.

They do sell a cardboard one though.

Corn is even better as a packing material.

Ship it to the factory/warehouse as corn kernels, then dry pop it and used the popped corn as packing peanuts...
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
