Ikea is known for its flat-pack, inexpensive furniture and home accessories, and now they are upping their sustainability game. They now offer replacement pieces to ensure their products last even longer than usual. In addition, they offer a "buy back" for pieces you may not need anymore. Anything not able to be resold is instead recycled.
This "circular" business model will allow them to hit their 2030 sustainability goals and continue to reduce their carbon footprint.
The Swedish firm said it was looking at selling items such as sofa legs and covers and arm rests, in addition to the replacement nuts and bolts it currently offers for free. Its aim is to prolong the life of its products and dispel the idea that it makes disposable goods.
