Choosing sustainable materials
We are continuing our journey towards only sourcing renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We aim to use only renewable or recycled materials and to provide new solutions for our customers to prolong the life of products and materials.
The many qualities of wood
Wood is an excellent material from a design, quality and environmental perspective – provided it’s responsibly sourced. And it’s an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage.
Committed to better cotton
All cotton used in IKEA products is from more sustainable sources. This means it’s recycled or grown with less water and pesticides. Good for the farmers, good for the planet and good for you.
More recycled or renewable-based plastic
Our ambition is that all the plastic used in IKEA products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. To start with we’re replacing single-use plastic and using different kinds of sustainable plastic.
Strong, recyclable metal
Metal is a great material. It’s strong, durable and affordable. And it’s sustainable too. And we want to make it even more sustainable by ensuring that our metal is sourced and produced in a responsible way.
Responsibly sourced wool – good for you and the planet
We’re on our way to only using responsibly sourced wool, meaning that the wool comes from sheep that are treated well, and land that is managed responsibly.
The many benefits of bamboo
As a material, bamboo is both strong and sustainable. And it’s versatile too. This is why we’re using more of it to create beautiful, durable IKEA products.
