IKEA has become a popular destination for Filipinos looking for practical and sustainable home solutions at accessible price points. The brand brings forward fresh designs for the summer, with functional and practical home solutions to help you go far this summer.
It’s time to experience the great outdoors once again, and IKEA brings forward its line of products that are perfect companions for summertime activities whether you are on the road or at home–from food storage solutions, textiles, outdoor furniture, decorations, and more.
ISTAD resealable bags (starts at P150/60 pieces) keep your healthy road trip snacks such as sandwiches and trail mix fresh and mess-free. They help protect the environment too, because they are made with renewable materials and are reusable, minimizing plastic waste in the environment.
Those who are heading for trips to the beaches and water activities to cool off can pack the soft and fluffy VÅGSJÖN towels (P450) that are made with 100% sustainably-sourced cotton. What’s more, they are durable and feel even more comfortable with every wash.
The clear skies of summer also make the perfect backdrop for a backyard barbecue. The TÄRNÖ outdoor table and 2 chairs (P4,890) are easy to set up and fold for convenient and space-saving storage. It is a practical addition to your home as it is made with sustainably-sourced acacia wood combined with easy-care powder coated steel for longevity as it ages beautifully.
As summer is also about more activities for the kids, IKEA also offers the MÅLA series, which are eco-friendly, non-toxic and child-safe art materials along with an easel where kids can draw and paint to their heart’s content. From portable drawing cases (P790) to whiteboard pens (P150/4 pieces), the MÅLA series has everything your child needs when creativity kicks in.
Sustainability for the many
Aside from offering practical home solutions, IKEA is also sharing the message of how important it is to care for the planet. As Filipinos head out after staying home in the past few years, it is also time to think about their impact on nature. The IKEA Life at Home Report data shows that 80% of the Filipinos polled are concerned about climate change. This is significantly higher than the 56% global average. This is why the brand is highlighting its series of products that are designed to help Filipinos enjoy a more sustainable summer, whether they are spending it at home or exploring the outdoors.
“At IKEA, we want to help ensure that sustainability is accessible and affordable for many, for us to truly achieve our goals of making a positive impact on the environment,” says Daniel Rivero, Store Manager at IKEA Pasay City. “The Philippines is a beautiful archipelago of beaches and mountain ranges and we want more Filipino families to enjoy nature while making sure that it is protected for the next generations.”
IKEA is likewise a supporter of local livelihood initiatives. In support of Filipino artisans, IKEA since it opened, has collaborated with social enterprise R2R as its sewing services provider at its Pasay store. The skilled sewers can tailor fit IKEA products according to customer specifications and even add embroidered elements for personalization.
More summer activities to enjoy
Each visit to IKEA opens new possibilities for home improvement ideas, along with enjoyable leisure activities. Foodies who visit IKEA for the Swedish meatballs will be delighted to discover new affordable food offerings such as Meatball Sisig with Rice and Broccoli (P95); Pork Ribs with Barbecue Sauce, French Fries and Broccoli (P490); Local Breakfast Set of Longganisa, Scrambled Eggs, Rice, Fried Onions and Pickled Cabbage (P120); and Veggie Balls with Organic Spaghetti Pomodoro and Broccoli (P120).
