Brodie Nets - "Replace your PVC Net Bag at Cost!"

Via Brodin Nets' Facebook:

Polyvinyl chloride is one of the nastiest plastics in the world. If you want to know more about it, here is a good link:

The short story is that PVC is made softer by adding plasticizers, which leach out and cause the remaining PVC to harden just like your household plumbing and turn yellow. Dioxin, a carcinogen, is released in the manufacturing and disposal of PVC products.

The fact is that there are alternatives to using PVC in “rubber” net bags and we have recently introduced our eco-clear net bag in a size that will fit our Cutthroat and Gallatin models. This size in PVC is used by other net manufacturers and can be identified by having 15 top loops and being about 39” in circumference.

So here is the deal:

Send us your old net bag in this size (and only this size), regardless of manufacturer, and we will send you an eco-clear bag and Dacron cord for $12, post-paid in the USA only. Since our net bags have the identical number of top loops as the PVC bags replacing your net bag should be an easy task. We have a video on You Tube that gives clear instructions. 

All PVC bags that we collect will be disposed in the proper manner.
We ask that payment be made by PayPal- info at brodin dot com
Send your old net bag by USPS to:

Brodin Landing Nets
PO Box 310
Gastonia NC 28053

We hope to have additional sizes in the eco-clear bags in the near future so that we can get rid of PVC once and for all.
