Recycle Mattresses at Ikea 

Each year, an estimated 15 to 20 million mattresses and box springs are disposed of in the U.S., according to the Mattress Recycling Council. Each day, 50,000 mattresses end up in landfills or are illegally dumped. Due to their size, mattresses take up lots of valuable landfill space and are difficult to compress. This new national program is part of IKEA's People and Planet Positive Sustainability strategy that was launched in October 2012. It shows a commitment to make mattresses easier for consumers to recycle.

What is 4Ocean?
4Ocean is a global movement actively removing trash from the ocean and coastlines while inspiring individuals to work together for cleaner oceans, one pound at a time.
The story begins when Alex and Andrew take a surf trip...
The Core Mission

  • Ocean Sustainability: Healthy oceans are critical for life on this planet. They provide the food we eat, the oxygen we breathe and their continued health depends on us.
  • Creating Global Economies: By giving ocean trash a value, we are changing the way people think about the problem and creating new economies in the process.
  • Recycling Awareness: Recycling is still an after-thought in many places around the world. So, part of our mission is to spread this awareness globally.
  • Earth Preservation:​ We only have this one planet to live on. Preserving its beauty, function and form for the next generations is the ultimate end goal​.
