Sustainability at The Girl & The Olive

Our intention is to produce the purest biodynamic skin care products while treading as lightly as we can.

Our commitment

Our promise is simple: to follow the principles of biodynamic farming, to protect the environment and human health. We approach sustainability to have the greatest possible social impact, while minimising our environmental footprint.

  • We source the majority of ingredients for our The Girl & The Olive skincare products from our ethically and responsibly managed olive grove.

  • The entire Mount Zero Olive Grove is powered off grid by 100% renewable solar energy.

  • Since 1993, we have revegetated 30% of the 86 hectares of olive grove with endemic, native plant species and promote biodiversity throughout our agricultural practices by planting diverse and varied companion plants, and establishing wildlife corridors for visiting native animal species.

  • Our grove is managed without man-made chemicals, genetically modified organisms, pesticides and pollutants.

  • Most of our products are vegan, and we do not test on animals.

  • We have a long history of working in collaboration with our local First Nations communities, namely The Barengi Gadjin Land Council, who provide instruction and consultation in ways to minimise our impact on the land.
