Posted by aclimaadmin | octubre 4, 2017 | Noticias del Sector

The company will recycle used mattresses, including any brand of old mattresses that are picked up when new IKEA mattresses are delivered and all mattresses that are returned to IKEA stores.

IKEA U.S. has announced the launch of a new national mattress recycling program, which goes hand-in-hand with its sustainability strategy of waste to resources. With the new program, the company will recycle used mattresses, including any brand of old mattresses that are picked up when new IKEA mattresses are delivered and all mattresses that are returned to IKEA stores.

«In keeping with our People and Planet Positive Sustainability strategy, IKEA has decided to take a lead in turning waste into resources,” says Lisa Davis, IKEA U.S. sustainability manager, in a statement. “We are committed to securing recycled materials while ensuring key parts of our range are easily recycled—all contributing to a closed-loop society.»

In addition to recycling mattresses, IKEA has created a community donation program called 5,000 Dreams that focuses on supporting newly arrived refugee families in local IKEA store communities. Through partnerships with U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, the International Rescue Committee and the Ethiopian Community Development Council, IKEA has started to donate beds and bedding—5,000 in total in the next two years—to refugee families who are making fresh starts with their families.
