The plastic coating on the inside protects against moisture.

Good clothes hamperEDWARDI needed a clothes hamper for my daughter's room. This is very sturdy and holds a lot of clotting. The handles on the top make it easy to lift and bring to the laundry room.5
Decent laundry bagJacquelynI wanted a different laundry bag but it has been out of stock both times I went to the Grand Prairie store. I will try this one and see how long it last but the one I was hoping to get had stronger handles and was not made of plastic.3
Perfect!Lindsey B.Grab this to replace a fabric bag. Like that it's wipeable, and holds a decent amount of clothes. I have no issues with it collapsing. It's actually my preferred bag to use5
Laundry BasketANNETTEThis Laundry Basket is the perfect size! My husband and I live in a small house and this basket will fit our lifestyle perfectly! Also, the Basket is very sturdy and attractive enough to sit out where it will be viewed every day.5
Multiple uses, it is marvelous…AnnI bought one of these and went back for 3 more. The first was one was given away to a friend to organize her bottle returns. My second one became my recycling bin in my kitchen. Now I just purchased 2 more. One for my laundry hamper. The other to keep on hand for my next need once I find out what that is. I like how you can wipe out the inside if necessary. They stand independently and don’t slouch.4
So far so good. JustmaricarmenSo far so good. Just been at my house for 2.5 weeks.5

Love this laundry bag!Kelly D.This is my second one! I still have the other one I purchased in 2017. Buying another one for the guest bedroom. Perfect size and easy to carry 2 flights down to the laundry room.5
Perfect for lap blanketsRebecca L.I bought this to hold throw blankets that were all over the living room. It's great for this purpose, easy to move around, and seems very sturdy.
It would be nice if it came in more colors or patterns.
A bonus is that when the cat wants to sleep in the blankets that are stored, he can get out easily since it is soft sided.5

Our take on polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
Virgin vs recycled polyester
Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.
Some challenges with recycled polyester
Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.
Only recycled polyester
IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.
At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organisations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.
What is polyester?
Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
