It’ll come as no shock that IKEA is truly leading the pack when it comes to upping your furniture game.
Now, in an Aussie first that takes sustainable practices to a whole new level, the land of your interior dreams has announced it’s kicking off a nation-wide buy-back service. That basically means if you’ve ever thrown your hard-earned cash at a Poäng chair or Billy bookcase, you’ll be able to return it back to IKEA and it will then be sold to a new owner. The result? Less landfill.
The initiative has already been tried and tested at one of the most iconic weekend hangouts of all time, IKEA Tempe, which has seen more than 1600 furniture pieces brought back to find a new home. You’ll basically get a gift voucher for any preloved furniture you bring back and help save up to 15,000 pieces of IKEA goods from landfill every year.
You’ll just have to make sure your IKEA piece is complete, unmodified and returned clean and fully assembled. You can also check out the buy-back value of your piece right here.
