In a bid to encourage customers to reuse, re-sell or recycle its most popular products, IKEA has revealed disassembly instructions to help break down the items safely.

Easy-to-use guides have been released for six of its best-selling products including the BILLY modern bookcases, BRIMNES and MALM bedroom furniture, LYCKSELE sofa beds, PAX wardrobe systems and the POÄNG armchair.

The Swedish retailer says that disassembling furniture will help customers extend the life of their products, whether they want to find a new spot for them in the house, or they intend to pass them on to others.

IKEA says that it is working toward becoming a full circular and climate positive business by the year 2030.



IKEA will buy back pre-loved furniture when stores re-open

When stores reopen, IKEA’s new Buy Back service will launch, a second-hand service that allows customers to sell back their pre-loved IKEA furniture.

Hege Sæbjørnsen, country sustainability manager at IKEA UK & Ireland, said: “Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at IKEA and we remain committed to introducing new ways to promote circular consumption, in order to help meet our goal of becoming a fully circular and climate positive business by 2030, in addition to making sustainable living accessible and affordable to all.

“In the past three years we have put a great deal of effort into understanding and defining what a truly circular value chain means for IKEA, and as such, we want to take circular consumption mainstream and make it easier than ever for customers to acquire, care for and pass on products such as by repairing, reusing, reselling, and recycling them.

“Alongside other initiatives like Buy Back, we hope the reverse manuals inspire people to re-think their consumption habits by extending the life cycle of our products and, together taking small steps, to help reverse against climate change at this critical time.”
