Great for teacher storage andZoeGreat for teacher storage and a good fit and stacking in the cubes as well. Although lids were not available at the same time and have taken a long time to come in.4

A quilters best storage friend!ChrisI love Samla storage boxes! I have a box for every colour fabric. They stack and are easy and light to access. I can see through them. Yardage fabrics lie flat and stay free of dust and humidity. The smaller boxes are exactly the right size for fat quarters or for my scraps and left overs from quilt projects. Best of all, at $5 and $2 they are affordable and great value for money. Thanks Ikea!!!5
I need moreJanaLove how it's clear. My cupboard is almost full of them but I still need more.5
They would be better withGeorginaThey would be better with rollers and when I pick them up the lid sometimes pops off which is scary!4

SamblaDeliaI'm very happy with this purchase. Initially, I purchased to store excess wool in. It is very handy to be able to see inside without opening. Since then I have bought 2 more to keep my grandson's sorted toys in. It makes it easy to pack away when he goes home and store stacked savibg space. I am about to purchase anout 20 more of varying sizes to organise my garage. I'm very excited at the peopect.5
Good quality and priceRossI'm happy with my purchase! Good quality plastic and good price 😊5
Fave storage tubsDinahLight weight. See through. Stackable. What can I say other than this bad boy is the best storage container you can buy at a great price. Worth the money. Don’t forget to buy the lid that comes separately.5
Love them!DinahCopy & paste of my previous review as I have literally bought all sizes and have so many in our rooms, linen closet and in the garage. These are so great for hobbyists that required light weight but also great quality tubs in different shapes and sizes. I’ve replaced all of my old XL el cheapo tubs with these and have found it’s easier to find things and also easier to move things around as they are smaller and weigh less.5
Best storage tubsDinahThese are great for keepsakes, paperwork, electrical bits and bobs. It’s easier to find things and also easier to move things around as they are light.5

Perfect sized cat boxesDoreenBought several for my cat who is obsessed with boxes. These plastic ones are easier to rinse out and keep clean, unlike random cardboard boxes. Kitty seems happy with the boxes lined with padded heat reflective mats for winter.5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!

Function solution

Hard to get apart?

When SAMLA boxes are stacked on top of one another a vacuum of air forms, which can make it hard to separate them. Just push or pull the long sides of the box lightly as illustrated above. This lets in a little air and makes it easy to separate the boxes.
