SAFEGUARDS: Eurojersey SpA, the Italian manufacturer of the patented Sensitive Fabric, has teamed with the World Wide Fund for Nature to protect the Mediterranean Sea and its endangered species.
The company launched a three-year partnership with WWF Italy, aiming to guard the sea from threats such as water pollution, overfishing and degradation caused by touristic activities. In addition the partners seek to preserve almost 130,000 sea turtles threatened by accidental fishing.
Eurojersey, which produces eco-friendly fabrics for international swimwear and lingerie brands, is no stranger to environmental work. In 2009, the textile manufacturer launched a five-year partnership with U.K.-based conservation charity World Land Trust to preserve the Argentine rainforest.
