Lighting accounts for about 15% of global electricity consumption.

Mirjam on knowing the chemicals in your favourite T-shirt
A white T-shirt and blue jeans have been the ultimate fashion uniform for decades now. But did you know that the whiteness of T-shirts comes from bleaches and dyes, which are often laced with chemicals, and they never entirely go away? This concerns IKEA because we want to use recycled materials to become a circular business. Together with H&M, IKEA has conducted a large-scale study on chemicals in post-consumer textiles. Mirjam Luc, project leader for recycled textiles at IKEA explains how this research takes us one step closer to our ambition of only using renewable and recycled materials by 2030.
