Plastic Netting

I saw this plastic netting today while looking at site we will be working on this summer. The straw wattle was left over from a previous project, completed almost six years ago. The straw filler is almost completely degraded. The netting is partially degraded, but in places is too strong to tear apart with my fingers. We need more 100% biodegradable best management practices and less plastic netting.
