Environmental responsibility is fully integrated into every aspect of Bariani Olive Oil. While we are proud of the results we have achieved, we recognize that there is much more to be done. We want to share our accomplishments, challenges and agenda for change, and we look forward to continuously reporting on our efforts and progress.
Our Waste Management
Our waste management system focuses on three core areas:
1. Recycling - cardboard, paper, aluminum, plastic, fluorescent bulb and batteries, and electronics
2. Creating - animal feed, energy or compost from food scraps and other organic products.
3. Packaging - working smarter with slimmer packaging. By working with suppliers to rethink our processes and product presentation, we’re cutting back on unnecessary waste and saving our customers money.
Our Fourth "R"
We all know the 3 “R’s” of sustainability – reduce, reuse, and recycle. At Bariani Olive Oil, there’s a fourth “R” – rethink. So much of what we do cuts across multiple categories as we try to find new ways to protect our planet. On the surface, packaging represents an opportunity to preserve precious natural resources, but the trickle-down effect runs much deeper. Even the smallest reduction lowers suppliers’ costs, enables them to ship their products more efficiently, cuts greenhouse gas emissions and saves our customers money. We work directly with our suppliers and partner with leaders in manufacturing, to drive progress in packaging reduction.
