Eurojersey are Italian leading producers of warp-knit fabrics range named Sensitive® used in the lingerie, swimwear and sports sector, sold internationally. From January 2010, through their Sensitive® Fabrics System, they are donating funds to purchase and protect One Metre of Rainforest for One Metre of Fabric sold.
The Eurojersey operations strive to be as environmentally responsible as possible and this ethic involves all their 189 staff working for the SensitivEcoSystem® programme in their Caronno Pertusella factory in Italy. Training in safety and environmental issues has enabled them to attain record results in the whole production cycle, recovery of recyclable materials and the elimination of energy waste.
"The concerns of everyone involved about environmental conditions has been the main factor in turning awareness into a shared ethical behaviour, in relation to both the work tasks performed and everybody's private life", says Eurojersey.
As the producers of Sensitive® Fabrics Eurojersey is also introducing WLT to some of its customers who, in turn, it is hoped will support WLT themselves. WLT is funding the purchase and protection of critically threatened Atlantic Rainforests in Misiones Province in Argentina, on behalf of Eurojersey.
