Before the Aroma Green Good Initiative logo can grace a package, it must meet the following rigorous standards set forth by Aroma Housewares.
The first products to transition to the green packaging solution were Aroma’s line of rice cookers. Aroma, America’s #1 Rice Cooker brand, sells over 1 million rice cookers a year in the US. By adopting molded pulp in place of polystyrene foam in just Aroma’s rice cookers, Aroma is projected to keep over 40,000 cu ft of polystyrene foam and plastic out of landfills in one year - an amount that would fill over 20 semi tractor trailers.
Molded pulp, which is made from a variety of recycled materials, such as corrugated clippings, old newsprint and/or industrial paper, provides an ideal environmentally-friendly solution to polystyrene foam without sacrificing the stability and durability that polystyrene foam provides.
Aroma isn’t stopping with green packaging. Aroma’s San Diego corporate headquarters was the first commercial office building to be recognized as green by the San Diego Area Green Business Program and has received workspace Energy Star Certification for energy conservation. To obtain these certifications took the work of everyone at Aroma, as all employees do their best to conserve energy and recycle whenever possible.
In addition to building a company culture centered on sustainability and wellness, Aroma’s product development team is also focused on creating products that save people time and energy, from both themselves and their utility companies.
Aroma is diligently researching new small kitchen electric technology to conserve energy and reduce environmental impact.
For the last few years Aroma has donated food and other supplies to the Missionaries of Charity organization in Tijuana, Mexico. The Missionaries of Charity congregation was originally founded by Mother Teresa and is active in 133 countries. The charity in Tijuana provides educational and spiritual instruction for children and care to the elderly homeless. Each year Aroma employees help take food and supplies to the charity, which gives Aroma the incredible opportunity to meet and thank the generous and loving members of this organization. The items donated are based on specific requests of the charity to help it better serve its members.
