Carvico and Jersey Lomellina joins Healthy Seas initiative

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-02-11 12:00:00 – BERGAMO

Carvico and Jersey Lomellina, leading Italian businesses producing high-tech knitted fabrics for swimwear, sportswear, underwear and outerwear, to participate in the Healthy Seas initiative which works to up-cycle marine waste for new textile products.

The brands will use 100 percent regenerated Econyl yarn, made from pre- and post-consumer waste, such as fishing nets recovered by the Healthy Seas initiative.

The Econyl Regeneration System uses manufacturing by-product waste and end of life nylon materials - including abandoned fishing nets and old carpets - and turns them into Econyl Nylon 6 for the production of new carpets and textiles, sportswear and swimwear.

General manager of Carvico SpA, Stefano Eretti, said that they have come to this decision over time, being fully aware of the social role that any business, operating in whichever market, must necessarily take on, with the objective of effectively and tangibly making a contribution to spreading a culture of sustainability. This is the only way they have today to protect the planet that their children will be living on, tomorrow.

Fiorella Angeloni, general manager of Jersey Lomellina SpA, added that the search for innovative products with high eco-friendly content is definitely a challenging but necessary undertaking. This is what keeps them on this path.

Fabrizio Calenti, member of the Healthy Seas Steering Committee said that they are extremely proud to have Carvico and Jersey Lomellina on board, as they represent global excellence in fabric performance and quality. Their decision to join and support Healthy Seas is in line with their commitment to the use of sustainable materials, and of industrial practices with reduced environmental impact.
