HEALTHY SEAS ALSO ACTS ON TWO OTHER FRONTS
• Collaborates with fishing communities to implement preventive actions against pollution caused by discarded fishing nets, finding new solutions for sustainable disposal both environmentally and economically.
• Conducts educational programs to promote the importance of responsible ecological choices.
The fishing nets, along with other materials (such as fluff and tulle), recovered in this way are delivered to Aquafil SpA’s regeneration plant. Here, through a sophisticated and complex recycling process, these materials are regenerated into ECONYL®, a new polyamide thread with the same performance and quality characteristics as virgin polyamide. However, in this case, non-renewable fossil raw materials have not been used.
For years, Carvico has chosen ECONYL® thread as a premium ingredient for the production of some of their sustainable fabrics in their collection. These fabrics are of the highest quality, ensuring the same performance as fabrics made with standard polyamide. Therefore, no compromises are required for designers when developing their collections using Carvico’s sustainable fabrics, which, in the swimwear fabric sector, holds the exclusive use of ECONYL® thread.
