Thanks for helping us decide which charity should get an IKEA makeover!
After weeks of your voting and support, this year’s IKEA Life Improvement Challenge winners have been chosen! Click on the link below for the complete list of winners who each won an IKEA makeover of a space that helps to improve the lives of others. The runners up will also receive a donation of IKEA products as a token of our appreciation for participating in this year’s contest.

Since 2011, over 200 local charities have received over $1.5 million in IKEA products, design expertise, and manpower!

Follow our co-workers’ journey!
IKEA believes in improving opportunities for children and their families. Several co-workers are traveling to rural West Virginia to visit Save the Children literacy programs funded by IKEA USA.

Save the Children Early Steps to School Success Program
The Early Steps to School Success program currently works in eight communities in five counties serving 3,197 children. The program lays a critical foundation of language, literacy skills, and social and emotional development for children from birth to age five. This includes home visits, book exchanges, parenting groups and an emphasis on transition to school, including equipping parents and caregivers with the skills to successfully support children’s growth.

Our co-worker will witness first-hand how this program funded by IKEA USA is helping children. Follow our co-workers’ journey on our new Instagram account @IKEAUSAjourneys!
IKEA is all-in for cotton from more sustainable sources
As of September 1, 2015 – all cotton used in the future production of IKEA products will come from more sustainable sources.

Cotton from more sustainable sources means that the cotton is grown with less water, less chemical fertilizer and less pesticides, while increasing profit margins for farmers leading to a better quality of life for their families, including schooling for their children through our collaborations with UNICEF and Save the Children.

Cotton is an important raw material for IKEA, used in many products, from sofas to towels. However, when grown conventionally, cotton farming uses large amounts of chemicals and water, raising costs and making it harder for farmers to earn a living. This milestone is part of a long journey to help transform the cotton industry. In 2010, IKEA together with the conservation organization WWF and other leading public and private organizations helped set up the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI).

IKEA Charlotte solar energy system!
IKEA, the world’s leading home furnishings retailer, has solar energy system installed in 41 stores in the US contributing to the solar presence atop nearly 90% of our US locations, and a total generation goal of 40 MW and IKEA Charlotte is part of this program. The 122,000-square-foot PV array installed in the IKEA Charlotte Store consists of a 1,015-kW system, built with 4,228 panels. The IKEA Charlotte program will produce approximately 1,330,000 kWh of clean electricity annually, the equivalent of reducing 938 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), eliminating the emissions of 195 cars or powering 140 homes yearly.

IKEA Charlotte now has a solar energy system!
