IKEA is working on furniture sustainability!
No more staring at that 5-year-old piece of furniture you wish you never bought. IKEA has now made its Buy Back & Resell program permanent for its 37 stores across the US!
The program will only accept IKEA brand furniture items including the following:
- office drawer cabinets
- small tables
- multimedia furniture
- dining tables
- desks and chairs
- stools without upholstery
All items have to be fully assembled. IKEA doesn’t mind if the furniture is used, of course, just as long as it is functional! If you’ve altered or customized your furniture in any way, it will not be accepted for this program.
Each item considered for the Buy Back & Sell program will have to pass an inspection based on functionality, age, and condition. Once it passes, you’ll collect store credit! “Excellent” condition gets a 50% credit, “very good” gets 40% credit, and “well used” gets 30% credit.
“IKEA is on a journey to become a circular and climate positive business by 2030… We want to help create a sustainable movement in society and inspire our customers to acquire, care for and pass on IKEA products in more sustainable ways.” – Javier Quiñones, IKEA U.S. President and Chief Sustainability Officer
When this program was in its pilot phase, it was extremely successful during its pilot at IKEA’s Conshohocken, PA location, where 100% of the products bought back were resold rather than recycled! Sustainability is important to IKEA, which is amazing for the future. Let us know if this program interests you!
