Welcome to the Circular Shop! In support of its vision of creating a better everyday life at home, IKEA’s sustainability range has a wide variety of affordable quality home furnishings that will help many Filipinos achieve a sustainable life at home.

While the concept of sustainable living is often viewed as challenging, unpractical, and expensive; IKEA simplifies it. “For us, a sustainable life at home is affordable and attainable through small actions that will eventually create a big impact on home life and on our Earth,” explains Georg Platzer, Store Manager of IKEA Pasay City. “At IKEA, we believe that sustainable living cannot be a luxury for the few. It must be affordable for the many.”

With more than 2,000 products that help people save energy and water, reduce waste, conserve resources, or settle into home furnishings made from renewable and recycled material, 57 solutions were specifically chosen and designed for Filipinos.

At the Circular Shop, you can find returned items, floor samples, end-of-the-range, and discontinued pieces, all at a fraction of their original price. It’s definitely the best place to visit for good and affordable finds. “We’re dedicated to giving every piece we make as long and as useful a life as possible, and this is one of the ways we’re making sure we do that,” shares Platzer.

IKEA Philippines: More Sustainable Solutions

IKEA furniture lasts longer.

IKEA presents furniture that grows as a family grows. Rather than needing to be replaced, pieces can be supplemented with modules as needed. Products that can adapt as needs change are even more useful. For example, they have the PAHL desk, which is an adjustable table that helps avoid the cost and hassle of buying a new desk as your child grows.

IKEA products use fewer resources.

A pressure compensating aerator is standard across the whole IKEA range of taps and showers. This reduces the amount of water coming out by up to 50 percent but keeps the flow at the desired level. LED light bulbs are also standard across all IKEA products. Those use up to 85 percent less energy. This makes them planet-friendly and lasts 20 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

IKEA products help reduce waste.

The world is using and wasting resources more than ever. By practicing small and smart changes at home like adhering to a waste sorting system, we can help the world’s waste problem. The SORTERA recycling bin, for instance, allows you to recycle and compost so you can significantly reduce waste at home.

Reusable IKEA products exist.

From the trusty and durable FRAKTA bag to the IKEA 365+ food containers, IKEA products are meant to be reused many, many times. The STORSTOMMA, a rainbow-colored version of the Swedish retailers’ bestselling carrier bag, is part of these products.

IKEA offers plant-based foods.

Plant-based foods have a smaller environmental impact than meat and dairy products. The problem is that plant-based food often come at the expense of flavor and texture. That’s
not the case with the HUVUDROLL plant ball, though. This plant-based alternative is just as delicious as its meat counterpart. The HUVUDROLL is fast becoming a favorite of Filipinos, so be sure to grab them right away because they sell out real quick.

IKEA products are made from natural and responsibly sourced materials.

Wood is durable, recyclable, and renewable if grown and used responsibly. It also looks great. Bamboo is another sustainable raw material used in IKEA products. Its strength and stability provide possibilities for construction with thinner elements and boards, resulting in reduced use of material. This saves natural resources and increases savings during transport. Bamboo also filters carbon dioxide, produces oxygen, and has a high growth rate making it extremely sustainable. Aside from wood and bamboo, all the cotton used for IKEA products comes from sustainable sources. In fact, 60 percent of the IKEA product range already uses renewable materials.

Much like how its products are catered to many people, so is the concept of sustainable living. IKEA makes sustainable living at home easier and more affordable than ever with practical and simple solutions that any Filipino can do.
