Part of IKEA’s new efforts around sustainability is to create a circular economy. Their latest efforts include a new recycling and take-back service at their Tempe store in Sydney. Allowing customers to return their unwanted IKEA furniture and get paid for it.
“We want to make it easy for people to give their Ikea furniture a second life. With millions of customers shopping with us every year, we have an opportunity to make a real difference in helping build a more sustainable life within the means of the planet.” – Kate Ringvall, Ikea Australia’s sustainability manager.
IKEA have also set up a Circular Living pop up store on site to educates customers on the benefits of recycled furniture.
