The many benefits of this mesh include a reduction to greenhouse gas emissions and with 98 percent of the plasticisers derived from non-fossil fuel feed stock, that means up to 0.0980 litres of petroleum is saved with every square metre of Outlook mesh purchased. Customers of Outlook mesh fabrics will be contributing to making this world more environmental conscious for years to come.
