Environmentally Friendly House


IKEA stores attract about 170 million customers worldwide, or about 83 million households.

So they got to thinking: even a small percentage of their customers could have an impact on the environment if they tried to live a more sustainable life at home. What if all 170 million of us made small changes in the way we live?  Together, we really could make a difference to the planet!  Here are a few simple ways to start.
