Coconet is a soil erosion control net made from waste coconut husks. With the Philippine's rich coconut resources, the company aims to become the world's leading producers of coconet with a highly improved production capacity starting with the growing demand of the Chinese market. This enterprise is environmentally friendly and will benefit the coconut farmers in the poor rural areas of the Philippines by generating revenue in the rural economy and providing new livelihood opportunities.
