Lowcountry Olive Oil is committed to conserving our beautiful cities by reducing, reusing and recycling materials used in the production and distribution of olive oils and vinegars. Customers are encouraged to return and exchange their bottles for a $2 discount on their next purchase. (maximum discount $2/bottle)
Here are some of the ways we are working towards conserving resources in Charleston and Summerville
Oil shipping containers and cardboard are recycled. Wooden pallets are recycled at Charleston County Electronic Waste Recycling where they are used to transport electronics for recycling.
Orders are packaged in 100% FSC recycled paper bags and recycled tissue paper, both made from 95% post consumer content
Local purchases of 5 bottles or more are packaged in cloth six-pack tote bags. Customers receive 1% off their purchase when they reuse our cloth bags in-store.
Cardboard from bottle shipping boxes are reused for shipping and shipments are packed with newspaper.
Customers are highly encouraged to receive receipts via text or email.
Simple Green Cleaner is used in both stores
All lights are LED
All paper and cardboard is recycled.
Buckets for transporting bulk olive oil are donated to Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary where they are cut into water bowls for dogs awaiting adoption.
Oil from tasting events and farmers markets is given to Southeast Biodiesel in Charleston where it is converted into fuel.
