Eurojersey partners WWF to protect Mediterranean ecosystem

Eurojersey, a producer of value added knit fabrics has initiated a partnership with WWF Italia to protect the Mediterranean Sea and in particular its marine ecosystem.

“The company seeks to protect the Caretta sea turtle, one of the wonders of the Mediterranean's marine ecosystem threatened mostly by accidental fishing,” a Eurojersey press release stated.

“The protection of the Mediterranean Sea and its ecosystem is the key point of the project that links Eurojersey's Sensitive Fabrics and WWF Italia in the framework of the SensitivEcoSystem programme,” it added.

Eurojersey said it has long been committed to sustainability and respect for nature and the environment and in order to take it further, launched a three-year partnership with WWF Italia.

Among other activities, the Italian fabric manufacturer will also safeguard the Mediterranean from pollution of water, overfishing, and the degradation caused by tourism-related activities.

Eurojersey's commitment is linked to the 'Made in Italy' identity of Sensitive Fabrics, innovators in both creativity and performance for the most prestigious international beachwear brands.

Together with WWF Italia, EUROJERSEY will contribute to preserving marine biodiversity, and the natural habitats.

World Wide Fund (WWF) is the world's largest organisation set up for conservation of nature. Set up in 1961, it is present in the world with 24 national organisations, 5 affiliated organisations and 222 program offices in 96 countries.

More than five million people around the world with their help, allow WWF to support over 2,000 specific projects each year for the protection of biodiversity and to create a world where humans live in harmony with nature.

The association is structured in national offices that operate in individual countries independently but in line with programs and objectives set by WWF International.

Eurojersey Spa, founded in 1960, represents Made in Italy style and creativity in the warp-knit sector with its patented Sensitive Fabrics.

The company has a vertically integrated plant that is the only one of its kind in Europe, employs 187 people and has an annual production capability of 12 million metres of fabric. (AR)
