IKEA Goes Green

I recently came across a statistic about IKEA that left me awestruck. The statistic stated that Ikea’s products are produced from 60% of renewable material and soon to be at 100% by 2030. This company is present is 52 countries and globally has 389 stores throughout the world. In the United States alone, there are 50 stores up and running. That’s a pretty inspiring and bold move for IKEA to commit to, but it’s this kind of company and mission statements that I want to support. When it boils down to design and what tangible characteristics they have, I am constantly environmentally aware of what they are composed of. Supporting companies that are environmentally aware catalyzes other companies to follow this example as well. IKEA is setting an example for future companies to follow, not only is IKEA’s move exciting but affordable. Many companies make is expensive to buy recycled material products, but IKEA has kept it reasonably priced. On top of that, providing beautiful and contemporary furniture. As one of the largest furniture stores in the world, I’d say Ikea is doing a pretty good job in contributing to a cleaner and healthier world.
