IKEA has opened it’s first second hand shop to make their sustainable goal possible. Their aim is to reduce their impact with 70% related to their currrent impact. To achieve this they would like to use renewable and recycled materials.
This second had shop is for now filled with decoration products from IKEA shops nearby and with products which are damaged. It will gain more experience with repair of damaged products before they implement this strategy on large scale.
Another initiave is the bring-back-friday in reaction on the black-friday-sale. When you return your used IKEA stuff you will recieve a voucher to buy new products. Your old products can be sold in the shop with discount.
