Great value in storage containersJoshua G.Great value considering the low price. Air tight and convenient, easy to clean by hand. However I have two quibbles. The first is that we get too many condiment size containers (I use these to store leftovers). The second is that the containers are somewhat fragile. I froze some vegetables in them but the containers fell out of my freezer (on me- no fault of the product) and shattered. Still pleased with the value of the remaining containers.4
Good range of sizesRachel M.Good range of sizes, but the lids don’t work with older versions of this product.4

OkayChristina L.These are great sizes and variety in one pack but the lids do not secure well. I would not trust it with anything you do not want to leak3
Good for more than foodLisa M.Good for leftovers but the smaller containers are great for small parts, charge cables, small soap to put in your purse, etc. Great to send leftovers home with friends and ok if the containers don't come back.5

Sustainable life at home

Save the freshness (and the food)

Food containers are a great way to keep food fresher longer. When your food stays fresh, you increase the chance that it gets eaten and not thrown away, saving you money on your food bill and precious food resources.

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.

Only recycled or renewable plastics

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 plastics

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!


A tough featherweight

Plastic containers are lightweight but tough. They also often have leak-proof lids. Practical features if you need a lunchbox for the home front, or to take to work or on picnics. Just remember that plastic is sensitive to heat. That's why you should never use plastic for cooking - just for thawing or warming up in the microwave. And always with the lid off or vent open.
