IKEA introduces FÖRÄNDRING, a collection based on rice straw

Back in 2018, IKEA launched the ‘Better Air Now’ initiative with the aim to turn rice straws – a harvesting residue that contributes heavily to air pollution when burned – into raw material. The first results are the upcoming collection FÖRÄNDRING. The long-term ambition is to create a model for how to reduce air pollution in other crop burning regions of the world, which is why IKEA has joined the Climate and Clean Air Coalition.
