IKEA SUPPORTS HOUSE WITH NO STEPS
Lets help turn inspiration into action
IKEA Sydney has donated the proceeds of a kitchen that was displayed at the HIA Sydney Home show. The proceeds of this kitchen will go towards helping House with No Steps build their very own kitchen.

House with No Steps have been supporting people with a disability to live a good life as valued members of their community. The kitchen will be used to teach the disabled valuable cooking skills and help them live a better everyday.

IKEA MAKE OVER
A brighter Liverpool Hospital
Liverpool Hospital is the major health service for south-western Sydney. These services include a Children’s and Women’s Health Centre & Cancer Therapy Centre.

Our DC (distribution team) team has refreshed rooms within these centres, providing patients; undergoing lengthy treatments; with a more comfy experience.

Our DC team also visited the children’s ward to give children toys in exchange for smiles and giggles!

Take a look at these before and after photos to see the transformation. We hope you like it!

IKEA SUPPORTS HEARTKIDS
We heart Heartkids
IKEA Rhodes has donated the proceeds of a kitchen that took centre stage at the Rhodes Waterside’s live cooking demonstration, featuring celebrity chefs, Adam Liaw and Alvin Quah.

The kitchen was sold in their AS-IS department where most of their display merchandise, discontinued products, overstocks and clearance items go before they find a new home. Not only did the kitchen go to a new home, the $2000 raised will help HeartKids help others.

HeartKids strives to improve the lives of kids affected by Childhood Heart Disease by providing high quality, caring support, information and advocacy and to give hope by driving world class research.

Ensuring there's plenty of fish left in the sea
“IKEA recently participated in a WWF-initiated dialogue that led to the development of a new standard of sustainable salmon farming, which we will apply to all of the salmon we sell and serve. After all, we need to do our part to ensure that there’s plenty of fish left in the sea for the future.” - Olivia Ross, IKEA Head of Sustainability Communication.

Classified as an oily fish, lax is considered to be healthy due to its high protein and Omega 3 fatty acid content, which are important for brain function. Lax also has lots of vitamin D for healthy bones and muscles.

IKEA has committed to source salmon only from ASC certified (Aquaculture stewardship council) farms by August 2015 at the latest.

IKEA Rhodes, LED
ENERGY & RESOURCES
We’re making the switch to LED
At IKEA Rhodes 9 out of 10 lights in our showroom are LED.

LED lights are the sustainable choice. It shines for over 20 years, can be built into lamps for new designs, and uses a sliver of the energy of incandescent bulbs.
