It’s “Earth Month” during April, and here at The Olive Press we’re all about staying green—not just for the month, but all year long. We know how wasteful throw-away plastic bags and bottles can be, so we do our best to offer environmentally friendly options for filling up on your goods. Currently, we’re featuring our burlap jute tote bags and bulk olive oil—two great ways to stay green while you stay stocked.
Reusable Jute Tote Bags
We rolled out eco-friendly burlap totes last year, and they are loads of fun to use for shopping and going out! Our array of Jute Tote Collections is available in different combinations of mustards, tapenades, balsamics, and olive oils. If you’re looking for just the bag (no olive oil or balsamic), our Farmers Market Tote is the thing for you. It comes in four colors and is the ideal size for packing in your fruits and veggies.
The mustard- and balsamic-sized tote is great to reuse for lunches, picnics, makeup or toiletries, and even books on the go! The taller-sized tote that comes with all balsamic and olive oil collections is just the right size for beverage bottles, picnic cutlery, or—surprise! — more olive oil.
Bulk Olive Oil
To stay even greener when refilling on fresh olive oil, we offer our “liquid gold” in bulk. Buying olive oil in bulk cuts back on packaging waste, and it offers another bonus for you: savings! Our bulk olive oil is just a dollar an ounce—a great deal for those who cook with olive oil regularly.
We encourage customers to bring in their own glass bottles and heirloom jars for refill (cleaned before bringing in for refill), as many people enjoy bringing in their own designed containers for fill-up. Bring your own clean glass in and you’ll save an extra 10% on your purchase! We also have glass jugs available for sale if you’d like to start from scratch.
Currently, we offer the following Extra Virgin Olive Oils in bulk: Arbequina, Master Blend, Italian Blend, and Mission. Find the full selection, along with ½- and 1-gallon jugs, on our website here.
