IKEA LIVE LAGOM

THE LIVE LAGOM PROJECT

A more sustainable life at home should be easy. It should make everyday life better and your home more beautiful. And it should be affordable enough so that we can all start right away. We know it’s possible and we want to prove it. That’s what the Live LAGOM project is all about. We are partnering with  University of Surrey’s centre for environment and sustainability who are monitoring and evaluating the success of the project and Hubbub a charity dedicated to communicating sustainability issues to a mainstream audience. We have given gift vouchers to hundreds of customers, and co-workers to invest in IKEA products that would help them save energy, save water, reduce waste, and live a healthier lifestyle. We gave them ideas and advice, and via a Facebook group they were able to support and inspire each other. We then asked them to tell us how they got on throughout the year. See below to find out how they got on. And come back soon to find out how this year’s participants are living a kinder life at home.


Just the right amount

Lagom comes from the Swedish phrase “Lagom är bäst” (the right amount is best), which we believe is the secret to sustainable living.

We love it because it’s what living a rewarding but responsible life is all about: not denying yourself or sacrificing what you love, while not taking from the planet more than you need. It’s just the right amount whether that’s food, energy, water or waste. It’s an idea with the power to change the way people feel about sustainability.
