IKEA Takes Steps to Become "Eco-Friendly"

According to multiple reports, IKEA is replacing its traditional timber shipping pallets with lighter and cheaper corrugated cardboard platforms. The best part is that the eco-friendly switch won’t come at the cost of functionality, as the corrugated cardboard pallets and wooden pallets both support weights up to 1,650 pounds.

“We don’t know if the paper pallet will be the ultimate solution, but it’s better than wood,” said Jeanette Skjelmose, sustainability chief at IKEA’s supply-chain unit, “We hope this will be a start in making transportation systems smarter and freight as compact as possible.”
