Why choosing Poe-tree is beneficial for the environment How our actions help in protecting and preserving our environment We do not use fertilisers and/or pesticides thus reducing harmful chemicals that may pollute our soil, air and water. Land: We protect the soil from erosion by keeping our field covered with other plants. Water: We let nature take care of watering our trees. Apart from the rainfall we do not water the olive trees. Air: We do not burn the olive branches that result from pruning. Instead we shred them and distribute them in our field to nourish the soil. Energy: The olives are picked by hand. Olive Oil waste and energy efficiency:We produce our olive oil in a 2-stage mill which produces smaller quantities of waste and is more energy efficient. Packaging: We use recyclable materials for our packaging. The paper used in our packaging is FSC certified. We take responsibility for the disposal of our packaging. We have joined an Extended Producer Responsibility program to pay for the recycling cost of all our packaging material.
