IKEA is Testing Buyback Program to Keep Customers’ Furniture From Ending Up in Landfills
In another bid to reduce their environmental impact, IKEA has launched a pilot program for taking back used furniture.
The Swedish retailer is offering to buy back customers’ used furniture in exchange for a voucher worth up to 50% of the original value of the product.
All customers have to do to sell their furniture is submit photos of their product to IKEA workers for appraisal. If the item is deemed to be in fair condition, they will buy back the furniture either for resale or for recycling.
