May we come for a visit?
IKEA Pittsburgh conducts local home visits* and we would love to come and visit you! By visiting homes in the area, we can see how local families, like yours live in their homes, which helps us to show better and more relevant inspiration and solutions in our store! If you are interested in hosting us for a visit to your home, please fill out Home visit applicaiton. If you are selected for a home visit, we will contact you to set up a date and time. As a thank you for allowing us to visit, we will give you a $25 IKEA gift card.

Sustainability & Community

To us it’s about taking care of people and the planet – from tackling the problem of children living in poverty to creating renewable energy. Our co-workers, suppliers and partners have been working on these issues and more for a while. You can see evidence of this work through innovative IKEA products and solutions, and through the way we do business. If we all take small actions, we can all contribute to big results.
Live a more sustainable life at home
There are many small ways to save the planet that add up to big results. Here are some our favorite products to help you live a more sustainable life at home!
Faucets
Saving water every time you turn on the faucet
All of our faucets use up to 50% less water than an older faucet. They have a simple water saving device that reduces the water flow (but without you noticing any difference)

Coffee
Tracing how good your coffee is before the very first sip
When you buy coffee from our Swedish Food Market, you can trace where it comes from. Just visit utzcertified.org/IKEA and enter the "best before" date to find out exactly where your beans are from. You can also learn more about the lives of the people who helped grow them.

KIVIK loveseat
Cotton that's better for farmers, their children and the environment
IKEA is embracing a better way to produce cotton. Working together with partners such as the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) and WWF has enabled more than 100,000 cotton farmers to significantly reduce water, chemical pesticide and fertilizer use, while increasing their earnings. By 2015 we want all the cotton we use to be produced this way. Through the IKEA Foundation we also work closely with Save the Children and UNICEF to give at least 16 million children in cotton growing communities better opportunities in life.

LADDA rechargable battery
Stay charged
A LADDA rechargable battery can be charged up to 500 times. So you'll get a lot more energy for all your power-hungry devices. And you'll rarely have to buy new batteries, which is a much kinder alternative for the environment.

LADDA Rechargable battery (002.405.85)

$4.99 4/pack

LEDARE E26 Bulb
We're changing our light bulbs so you'll rarely have to
By 2016 we'll switch all the lamps and light bulbs we sell to LED. Why? Because LED is the most energy-efficient lighting there is. It uses 85% less energy and lasts 20 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Imagine if we all made the switch to LED? Together we'd save a lot of money on electricity and a lot of energy!

LEKMAN storage box
Feel like thinking outside the box?
How about choosing a storage solution that's part of a bigger solution? Made from recycled plastic, our LEKMAN box is strong, durable and stackable. Use it in EXPEDIT for craft projects or to store your vintage album collection.

IKEA Pittsburgh now has a solar energy system!
As part of our commitment to sustainability, IKEA has installed a new solar energy system atop this store. The 86,800 square foot array consists of a 694-kW system, built with approximately 2,884 panels.

The IKEA Pittsburgh solar program will produce approximately 852,200 kWh of clean electricity annually - the equivalent of reducing 648 tons of carbon dioxide, eliminating the emissions of 115 cars or powering 73 homes yearly.
