Sustainability : The Olive
Olive, on the other hand, appears as a symbol of sustainability in the most ancient stories.
According to the narrative of the holy books, a white bird with an olive tree branch in its mouth conveys the news about the end of the Great Flood which is the greatest environmental disaster humanity has ever seen, and that life will continue, to Noah’s Ark.
Good morrow, fair ones; pray you, if you know, where in the purlieus of this forest stands a sheep-cote fenced about with olive trees?
– WILLIAM Shakespeare
Olive oil from the heart
In brief, sustainability is the olive, the olive oil itself, for us the olive producers.
The olive tree tells us our responsibilities towards the soil, environment, and society.
