reducing waste
Reducing waste at source: Some things are worth a second chance
Our store is equipped with a repackaging machine and a spare part library to allow us to give a second life to products (returned products or samples). You can find these products in the AS-IS department at advantageous reduced prices.
recycle at home
Recycling our waste to reduce our impact on the environment:
A large volume of our waste comes from packaging, this is why we design our packaging in the most minimal and efficient way without compromising the integrity of the packaged product. We also ensure the packaging we use is easily recyclable.

In IKEA Jordan store we have designed a Recycling Area to deal with our operations waste. We have equipped it with compacting machines, to handle our waste more efficiently, increase our recycling options, and reduce the CO2 emissions generated by the number of trips needed to transport the materials to the recycling companies.
Get started on a recycling station
Try a separate bin for each of your recyclables, with bigger ones for higher use items (like maybe plastic or paper) and smaller ones for less common. A picture of what should go inside makes them easy to sort.
We care for resources:
energy
Energy efficiency:
• 100% LED Lighting: IKEA Jordan showroom and market hall have been fully equipped with LED bulbs (Light Emitting Diodes). LED helps us consume less energy and reduce our impact on the environment.
• 1 LED light consumes 85% less energy than a normal bulb and lasts 20 times longer.
water
Water saving:
Water is a very valuable resource that is becoming scarce in the world. It’s our responsibility towards the future generations to look for ways to minimize the amount of water we use.
In IKEA Jordan we took this into consideration and use water saving taps to bring down our water consumption.
