Conscious Business shout out to IKEA!! 🚨🎉 To be honest, we were surprised and totally blown away to see the depth of what this major furniture and consumption outlet is doing to work towards sustainability for our planet. For years, the company has been researching and investing in solar and wind energy for both their stores and distribution centers, with over $2 billion spent on renewables. They also understand the importance of integrity through all levels of their supply chain, and spend time and money with their over 1200 suppliers to move them towards renewables the reduce their carbon emissions as well. On a product level, Ikea has been rolling out more and more products that are both energy efficient for the consumers as well as made of sustainable and recyclable materials [like rugs made from left over bed linen materials, storage boxes made from reused bottles and spray bottles made from covers of other IKEA products.] While Ikea certainly produces a large amount of materials for consumption, they are doing their best to work towards utilizing and repurposing their own waste as often as possible. They are also on the cutting edge of utilizing new materials that are better for the environment and avoiding materials that we now know to be toxic to our Earth such as oil-based plastic. On a philanthropic level, Ikea has the IKEA Foundation, which “aims to improve opportunities for children and youth in some of the world’s poorest communities by focusing on four fundamental areas of a child’s life: a place to call home; a healthy start in life; a quality education; and a sustainable family income.” Ikea does work with Handicap International to help cultivate a safe and uplifting space for children with disabilities worldwide to be nurtured well and develop into their greatest selves — specifically through building playgrounds that allow these children to use their imagination and experience connection, two vital pieces of healthy growth. Thank you Ikea for proving that businesses, no matter what sector they operate in, can do so with honor and integrity for our planet and its inhabitants!!!! Keep up the fantastic work!!!! 💙
