We have challenged ourselves to develop a delicious veggie hot dog for the IKEA Bistro, a plant-based, more sustainable option to our much loved iconic hot dog. The veggie hot dog has the same low price, but requires fewer resources and leaves a smaller carbon footprint than our meat-based hot dog.
We believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise on price, quality, design or sustainability when decorating your home. Since September 1st 2015, all the cotton we use for IKEA products comes from more sustainable sources. This means that the cotton is either recycled or grown with less water, chemical fertiliser and pesticides. In other words, any cotton choice you make at IKEA is a better one.
Using waste as a resource saves precious raw materials and takes us one step closer to a more sustainable future. We continuously explore how innovation can change our way of doing things for the sake of a better tomorrow, which is why we now have several products in our range made from recycled plastic. Have a look at them here – you won’t believe what can be made from PET bottles!
The world is changing rapidly. To meet the challenges we are all facing requires bold ambitions and urgent action. That’s why we’re taking the next big steps in our journey towards becoming people & planet positive.
