Why Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Good for the Environment

When it comes to sustainable production and environmental care, extra virgin olive oil should be your go-to choice. It has vast economic importance for farmers in the countries where it is produced, provides biodiversity in cultivation areas, and is used to produce a variety of products such as soaps and cosmetics. Apart from that, it also helps in reducing nonrenewable energy consumption when compared to other alternatives.

For example, the production of extra virgin olive oil requires five times less energy than coffee or sunflower oils. As a versatile ingredient with a positive environmental impact, you can see why so many people are turning to extra virgin olive oil now more than ever!

Respect for the global environment and communities in which we operate has always been a key consideration for the team at Morocco Gold.

We created Morocco Gold extra virgin olive oil for health conscious, discerning food lovers across all cultures and culinary backgrounds – made with care for the environment every step of the way. When we speak with our customers they always ask about our source in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains as well as how it is produced. They care passionately about the taste, how high quality extra virgin olive oil like Morocco Gold has proven health benefits and – increasingly – the impact it has on the environment.

We were fascinated with a new study by researchers from the University of Oxford and the University of Minnesota that demonstrates foods that are considered to be healthy, such as whole-grain cereals, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and extra virgin olive oil, also have the lowest environmental impact.

This extensive research by Michael A Clark, Marco Springmann, Jason Hill, and  David Tilman, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) shows that eating healthier also means eating more sustainably and reveals a clear link between healthy food and environmental sustainability. Food choices are shifting globally in ways that are negatively affecting both human health and the environment. Here the researchers considered how consuming an additional serving per day of each of 15 foods key food groups is associated with 5 health outcomes in adults and 5 aspects of agriculturally driven environmental degradation.

The researchers found that “while there is substantial variation in the health outcomes of different foods, foods associated with a larger reduction in disease risk for one health outcome are often associated with larger reductions in disease risk for other health outcomes. Likewise, foods with lower impacts on one metric of environmental harm tend to have lower impacts on others”.

Additionally, of the foods associated with improved health (whole grain cereals, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, extra virgin olive oil, and fish), all except fish have among the lowest environmental impacts, and fish has markedly lower impacts than red meats and processed meats. Foods associated with the largest negative environmental impacts—unprocessed and processed red meat—are consistently associated with the largest increases in disease risk.

How Dietary Choices can impact our Environment.

Our dietary choices can have a powerful impact on the environment. Many of us make a conscious effort to drink reusable water bottles, reuse grocery bags and turn off the lights when we leave a room, but it’s also important to consider how dietary habits can affect the planet too. For example, did you know that growing extra virgin olive oil requires half as much energy compared to other food production?

By changing up what types of foods you buy at the supermarket, you are doing your part in reducing your carbon footprint. Furthermore, buying locally sourced and organic products helps reduce air pollution, since those items don’t have to be transported long distances by truck. Ultimately, being mindful about our dietary choices is an important way we can all contribute to protecting the environment.

Women make up, on average, 43 percent of the agriculture labour force in developing countries, and 50 percent or more in some parts of Africa. Empowering women to participate in agricultural activity gives them greater influence over household income and expenditures, which typically helps to reduce household poverty and benefit children.

In conclusion, extra virgin olive oil is an essential part of a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. Not only does it provide many health benefits as well as delicious culinary experiences, but our extra virgin olive oil helps support the local economy, where every production project directly subsidizes small-scale growers. Our devotion to sustainable practices means that buying our extra virgin olive oil is more than just a tasty choice—it’s a smart and responsible one. Taking care of your body and the environment can and should be done hand-in-hand – buying quality-produced extra virgin olive oil is a great way to start. So why not leave with one last bit of love for mother nature, and get yourself a bottle of this golden liquid today? Now that’s an investment you won’t regret.
