IKEA Buys Huge Forest In Alabama For Ethically Sourced Timber

By Desirée Kaplan

IKEA, a company famous for its affordable furniture, has recently focused on becoming more environmentally sustainable. Since the company primarily produces home goods and furniture, it tends to consume a significant amount of wood. To make sure they maintain their sustainability goals, one of IKEA’s priorities has been to use responsibly sourced timber. 

Recently, IKEA took matters into their own hands and directly invested in forests. The company purchased a forest in the United States to sustain its furniture production. The land spans across 25,0000 acres in Lowndes County, which is right in the middle of Alabama.
