Only recycled or renewable based plastic in IKEA products by 2030
IKEA is committed to making a positive impact on people and the planet. Our ambition is that all the plastic we use will be based on renewable or recycled materials. To start with we’re replacing single-use plastic and using different kinds of sustainable plastic in more products.
Facts about plastic at IKEA

Working with waste
Finding new ways to work with recycled materials is key and using waste as a resource takes us one step closer to a more sustainable future.
PET is the most recycled plastic and can be used for many different purposes.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable based 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!
