8. Live a More Sustainable Life at Home

The company is aiming to help customers reduce water consumption by promoting fitted pressure compensating aerators (PCAs), which reduce water use by more than 30%.

9. Sort Your Waste

Recycling is key to reducing waste. IKEA’s RATIONELL system helps people organize and recycle household waste in a simple and environmentally friendly way.

10. Design the Price Tag First

The Swedish company carefully considers the use of raw materials, transport and production methods. This is exemplified in Ikea’s LAMPAN lamp, which features a lampshade that doubles as protective packaging to allow for a dramatic reduction in price.

For the second time IKEA is one of the main partners at Copenhagen Design Week, and the company’s ‘10 Stories For The Future’ exhibition offers an educational example of how they believe in making sustainable design affordable for the masses.
