Handy little organiserVerified ReviewerGreat for cupboard storage. Easy to take out of the cupboard and back again using the handle5
UnobtrusiveVerified ReviewerI bought this to hold all the bathroom cleaners that live behind the toilet , it's a small toilet with no storage . This keeps everything together neatly and because it's transparent it looks good too .5
Art room storageVerified ReviewerBought these to store my acrylic paints in. Does the job4
Very usefulVerified ReviewerVery useful5
Perfect to store small toolsVerified ReviewerSo handy and easy to carry around from room to roomberyl5
Not for anything heavyVerified ReviewerBought this to sit on top of the larger storage boxes as it is designed for, however after using it for several months the insert has warped to such an extent that it no longer fits inside the box and is now useless. Seemed a great design but really not strong enough for the task.2
Great storage optionVerified ReviewerGreat for various items, I have s few of these5
Perfect for carrying my card craft itemsVerified ReviewerI found this carrier excellent for taking my card craft making items to craft clubs. It’s surprising how much I can pack into. It is incredible value for money.5
Children’s changing packVerified ReviewerBeing new grandparents this was purchased with a SAMLA box and lid to store changing mat, nappies, creams, etc. we need for the children. It is simple, convenient and value for money.5
Verified ReviewerVery useful for keeping kits of stuff for a single project together, e.g. fabric in the base of a www box with tools and small parts on top. Using it as an insert means a lid and clip fasteners can be used too so there’s less chance of losing bits. Maybe consider using webbing straps or sticky hook & loop fasteners as closures for regular use and non-stacked applications as the clip fasteners are really tight for my old fingers. I’d like them to be a little more sturdy in use alone too as plastic used for the whole range seems to have been reduced in thickness over the years, rather than increasing the price. This is particularly noticeable with the rims and corners that don’t always survive the trip home or are found to be damaged when a stack is separated. Think it’s time to increase the price a bit rather than reducing quality further. What is really good is that the whole range has been kept the same size for years so my entire work and domestic storage systems can be stacked safely in loft, garage, garden shed and work areas. Also really useful is the translucent material so you can see what’s inside!4
Perfect for cleaning productsVerified ReviewerI have been looking for something like this for some time - it stores cleaning products and the handle means that taking products upstairs no longer requires juggling - this is a sturdy insert and although I may not be using it in the manner intended I have found it to be a very useful addition to my store cupboard.5
Good for kitchen storageVerified ReviewerThis is a very neat, useful little box for keeping cleaning items together under the kitchen sink. It keeps items tidily together and the handle allows it to be easily lifted in and out.5
Many usesVerified ReviewerThis product is suitable for many uses is easy to use easy to clean5
Useful garage storageVerified ReviewerSturdy, reasonably priced - does the job!5
A great way of storing my cycling shoesVerified ReviewerThis tray holds my cycling shoes neatly and it sits inside a Samla box of the same size. All neat and tidy and ready for another ride.5
Alternative useVerified ReviewerKitchen tidy purchased for use as croquet ball carrier. Able to fit 2 sets of balls into carrier at the same time (8 balls). ideal for carrying balls from storage to croquet court. Only drawback is the sharpness of the underside of the handle - easily remedied with a tape wrap.4

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!
