Our Recyclable, Post-Consumer RPET Packaging Helps Us Use Less Plastic
We are committed to giving back to the community and doing our part to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Aurora Products is proud of its efforts to be greener and in leading the industry towards a more eco-friendly and environmentally driven business approach.
We actively seek ways to decrease the use of plastic by using packaging made from 100% recyclable RPET (polyethylene terephthalate), derived from partially post consumer recycled goods. Plastic made from RPET is considered to be one of the best commodity materials as a barrier to oxygen. Its clarity, inertness, barrier properties and recyclability make it a premium choice for Auroras quality product line.
Aurora Products also conserves resources by recycling cooking oil from its nut roasters as bio energy. After roasting our own nuts, used sunflower oil is re-used and converted to fuel for transportation purposes.
In addition, Aurora strives to conserve energy by participating in a voluntary shutdown of production during periods of energy overload in the community. We work closely with utility companies by shutting down our facility for a few hours when needed to allow even distribution of electricity to others and to minimize black-outs.
