You won't be able to get straws, plastic cups or freezer bags from any UAE Ikea any more
It has been just announced that the home furnishing giat IKEA has kept its promise to go plastic free by 2020.
This means single-use use plastic products like straws, plates, cups, freezer bags, garbage bags and plastic-coated paper plates and cups are going to be removed from the home furnishing range globally.
IKEA has also introduced a new range of disposables for all IKEA restaurants, bistros and cafés.
Existing cups, cutlery, bowls, plates and straws have been replaced with products made with materials from renewable sources.
Single-use plastic can pollute ecosystems, such as oceans and waterways, and harm wildlife if it is not disposed of responsibly.
