The people of Industrial Netting recognize that the key to a sustainable business model and long-term enterprise success is the judicious use of resources. Environmental stewardship is an integral part of that commitment.
Our pest control plastic netting provides a humane, environmentally friendly, passive deterrent to protect shrubs, gardens and decorative plants from foraging wildlife without inflicting trauma.
We offer reusable plastic mesh to the machine tool industry as an alternative to single-use cardboard dividers. Non-absorbent breathable mesh separators help minimize rust and corrosion by allowing air and fluids to flow freely.
Our Car-Go-Net® plastic containment netting plays a vital role in the safe transportation of scrap metal and becomes part of the fuel at the mills that recycle those scrap materials into new metals. Using Car-Go-Net® plastic containment netting in place of trailer side walls also reduces load weight and allows for greater hauling capacity to reduce fuel consumption.
We help reduce the hazardous waste stream to landfills by producing components for industrial filter elements that can be incinerated at the end of their service life.
The majority of our plastic nets and plastic rigid mesh tubes are made from polypropylene resin. Among fossil fuel-based resins, only polypropylene can be considered sustainable under a reference system created by non-profit environmental solutions provider Clean Production Action and sustainability consultant Pure Strategies.

Waste Reduction and Energy Efficiency Initiatives
We recycle scrap polypropylene resin, polyethylene resin, and cardboard with a local re-processor where materials are ground and pelletized for use in the manufacture of new polymer products. We recycle more efficiently using a vertical Baler in which bales a variety of materials - maximizing our recycling output.
We retrofit our factory and warehouse with energy efficient lighting (LED) to reduce energy consumption by 26%.
We upgraded our software and refined our document control processes to reduce paper records through the use of more robust electronic record-keeping.
We allocated capital resources to state of the art packaging equipment to minimize the weight and bulk of finished products.
