Net-Works empowers people in coastal communities to collect and sell discarded nylon fishing nets: which are sold and recycled into yarn to make carpet tile.Net-Works has set up a number of local ??community banks?? that provide access to finance in a way that is convenient and local. The banks are run by members of the surrounding community and also coordinate the collection and sale of the nets.The Net-Works system helps to create income opportunities that actively support the restoration and sustainable use of coastal environments.
