IKEA Launches Kitchen Made From Recycled PET-Bottles

IKEA has launched a range of sustainable kitchen fronts called KUNGSBACKA, which are made from recycled PET-bottles and wood.

PET-bottles are made from the recyclable material polyethylene therephalate, but aren’t often recycled and end up as waste in landfills. The innovative production of the KUNGSBACKA kitchen fronts means that a large quantity of PET-bottles are recycled and are used to replace virgin oil-based plastic.

Around twenty-five half-litre PET-bottles are used to create a plastic foil that coats the reclaimed wood kitchen fronts, creating a sustainable kitchen unit.
