IKEA Live Lagom

Live LAGOM

‘Lagom’: it’s a simple Swedish philosophy on everyday life that means ‘just the right amount’. We believe it’s what living a rewarding but responsible life is all about: not denying yourself or sacrificing what you love, while not taking from the planet more than you need. It’s just the right amount for you whether that’s food, energy, water or waste. We think it’s an idea with the power to change the way people feel about sustainability.

As part of our Live LAGOM project, we supported IKEA customers and co-workers with products, workshops, bespoke advice and an active community to help save energy and water, reduce waste and promote a healthy lifestyle. Through their experience, we wanted to learn how to make sustainability affordable and easy to achieve. We hope you will be inspired by their successes to find your own LAGOM!
 

Join our Live LAGOM community and by making small changes in your life you can live a happier, healthier lifestyle. #livelagom


THE LIVE LAGOM PROJECT

With LAGOM in mind, we think you can live a more sustainable, healthy and cost-conscious life at home without a dramatic upheaval. Small changes that add up to a big impact. Turning the tap off while brushing your teeth, switching to LED light bulbs - you'd be surprised how much small tweaks to the everyday can impact both the world and your wallet.

IKEA LIVE LAGOM report

IKEA live LAGOM year 1 report

We are evaluating the impact that the Live LAGOM project has so we can understand the barriers that prevent people from living more sustainably, and how IKEA can help people overcome them. Our research partner is the University of Surrey’s Centre for Environmental Strategy, experts in understanding sustainable behaviour change. Have a look at their interim findings from year 1 in this report. And watch this space for more information, and the full project report, due Winter 2018.
