At IKEA, we want to have a positive impact on people and the planet. We purchase raw materials responsibly and 85% of the waste at IKEA Netherlands is recycled.
Take a look at some of our products which are (partially) made from recycled plastic.
TOREBY & KRISTRUP doormat
The TOREBY doormat is made from our own waste, the plastic tie-wraps around our pallets served as raw material for this product.
Wipe your feet on recycled PET bottles with the KRISTRUP doormat, made of polyester from about 6 PET bottles!
The chipboard is made of recycled wood and the foil is made of recycled plastic from PET bottles. Each cabinet front contains 25 half-litre bottles.
The plastic in this product is made from recycled PET bottles. In this way we use less new raw materials and reduce our negative impact on the environment.
ISTAD plastic bags
We also have bioplastic products. Our well-known sandwich bag ISTAD is now made from bioplastic: plastic made from sugar cane waste. This saves 75,000 tons of oil annually!
It’s mind-blowing to see how we use everything from the sugarcanes, there is no waste”
