Ikea launching products made from recycled plastics
Swedish retailer Ikea announced that their new cabinet line will be made from recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed wood.
Ikea’s current cabinets are constructed from man-made wood planks and topped with veneer, while the new Kungsbacka line will be made from reclaimed wood planks and the veneer will be made from melted plastic bottles and painted black.
The Kungsbacka line will be available in North America starting in February 2017.
And on the heels of Kungsbacka, Ikea is also launching the Odger chair, made from 70 per cent recycled plastic and 30 per cent renewable wood.
