Social Impact

"The first law of ecology is that everything is related to everything else".
- Barry Commoner -
“American leading ecologist”

Objective

Liofyllo's mission is to process untapped natural raw materials by creating an innovative, environmentally-friendly substance and a wide variety of crafts, creations, artworks, products and objects deriving from the olive leaves in order to protect the environment as well as promote the Mediterranean culture and, especially, the Greek one.

History

The existence of enormous unexploited natural raw materials, which are considered to be rejects (or waste) while they can be exploited and recycled, has led modern research into the development of new innovative materials. This is how Liofyllo's idea was born.

Why olive tree?

The olive tree, a Mediterranean one, is a sacred symbol of civilization, peace (Olympic Games), prosperity, longevity and noble competition. Greece is the third largest producer of olive oil, following Spain and Italy. More than 132 million olive trees are grown on its territory, from which, approximately 350,000 tons of olive oil is produced annually.

If you deconstruct Greece, you will in the end see an olive tree, a grapevine, and a boat remain.

That is, with as much, you reconstruct it.”
