Our take on plastic
Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs.
There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Designers Knut Hagberg and Marianne Hagberg (yes, they’re brother and sister) have worked with us since the 70’s.
“We try to make the everyday better for as many people as possible with every single product we design. At a reasonable price. That’s what motivates us”, says Knut.
FLUNDRA is a good example of that kind of design. It has more to offer than the most obvious.
That FLUNDRA had to work in a small home with limited space was a given. That’s why the cutlery stand is a part of the dish drainer itself. By using flexible polypropylene plastic, it became possible to hang nine glasses on the side of the drainer, dry 18 plates at the same time – and still have room for that extra pan or bowl. The choice of material also keeps costs low.
Challenge (almost) solved
“We wanted to add something that could trigger the imagination and bring some joy to the product. That’s why we made the drain holes look like soap bubbles – it makes FLUNDRA more playful and a little less like your average dish drainer, explains Marianne.
Does FLUNDRA make doing the dishes more fun, then? Maybe not. But, we created a dish drainer that can dry a lot of dishes on a small area. And at a price that fits anyone who rather spend money on other things than dish drainers.
Only recycled or renewable plastic
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted.
Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material.
Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastic
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse.
PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil.
PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable 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!
Put your money on something more fun than dishes
Limited space in the kitchen, limited time and money, which they'd rather spend on something other than dishes. That's what everyday life is like for many people. That's why FLUNDRA has a really low price, so you can put your money on things that are more fun than dishes. Even so, FLUNDRA is more than an ordinary dish drainer. You can hang 9 glasses on the sides, dry 18 large plates at the same time and still have room over for pans and cutlery.
