IKEA Vows To Eliminate All Single-Use Plastic By 2020

By

Ikea, a popular furniture retail company that’s already made multiple sustainable advances, is removing all single-use plastic from their stores. By 2020, these products will be phased out, both in stores and in their in-store restaurants. The company also announced a flurry of other renewable commitments by 2030.

Single-use plastic waste has been an ongoing issue with over 90 percent of it not being recycled. Instead of solely relying on the convenience of the items, it’s easy to eliminate plastic straws, using tote bags for groceries, and opting for a reusable bottle or mug to get us through the workday or when traveling.
