Reduce food waste at home
One way to reduce our climate impact is by minimizing waste. There are many ways to do this, from using only what we need to create a recycling station at home. Re-using leftovers also helps. Remember, every little bit counts.
Roughly a third of the food produced for human consumption worldwide every year gets lost or wasted.
Make your own bottled water from a natural source. The tap.
Plastic waste pollution is a matter of real concern for all of us, not to mention the emission of greenhouse gases from transportation. So, next time you feel like grabbing a bottle of spring water from some far-away well, don’t. Instead, bottle your own water using the durable IKEA 365+ bottle.
Many brands of bottled water are really just tap water – and often at 2,000 times the price. So why not refill your bottle from the tap to save both plastic and money.
If the current trend continues, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans by 2050. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, we phased out all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range in January 2020.
