How to protect the environment with easy actions
Protecting our environment is not only an ethical and moral obligation, but also a necessity to maintain our future. The effects of climate change are already being seen in rising temperatures, melting glaciers, extreme weather events, and diminishing biodiversity. Without urgent action, these effects will only become worse and have far-reaching consequences for human society and the natural world alike.
We can all play our part in protecting the environment. At Estepa Origin Designation We offer you some simple steps that have a positive effect on the environment.
1. Reduce, reuse and recycle:
one of the most important tips for protecting the environment is to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible. By using less new materials and reusing, recycling, or composting what you can, you can reduce your impact on the environment.
2. Use Public Transportation:
taking public transportation instead of driving your own car is a great way to reduce carbon emissions. If you can’t take public transportation, consider carpooling with friends or coworkers.
3. Buy Local:
buying locally-produced goods and produce can help reduce your carbon footprint. Local food doesn’t have to travel as far to get to you, which means fewer emissions.
4. Turn Off the Lights:
turning off the lights when you leave a room is an easy way to save energy and reduce your carbon footprint. Make sure to turn off any electronics that you’re not using as well.
5. Plant Trees:
planting trees is a great way to help the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, which helps to clean the air and reduce global warming.
100 % SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION
We are aware of the important role we play in caring for the environment and, for this reason, all the oil in our territory is produced using sustainable methods that are completely safe for the consumer. We are committed to the preservation and regeneration of the environment, aware that protecting the environment is the best legacy we can leave to future generations.
Integrated and Organic Production
100% of the territory covered by the Protected Designation of Origin Estepa has sustainable agriculture, as it uses integrated and organic production methods for the production of its extra virgin olive oil. Both methods are totally respectful of the environment and, furthermore, are carried out under total traceability, which means that the product is totally safe for the consumer.
Both production systems are based on a set of agricultural and production techniques that respect the environment in order to obtain high quality products. The aim is to make rational use of natural resources, such as water, and to avoid, for example, soil erosion.
The practices used in our olive groves also respect the surrounding flora and fauna, ensuring the present and future biodiversity of our territory. Thanks to the use of this sustainable agriculture we contribute to an increasingly healthy planet.
