There’s no time to waste

Recycling and minimizing waste are crucial ways to sustain our environment. It may sound daunting and difficult but there are things everybody can do, from creating a recycling station in your home to using only what we need when we actually need it. Make weekly dinner menus and store leftovers in the freezer for lunch another day. This saves us from taking resources out of the planet.

Let’s talk trash

VARIERA is a modular recycling system that you can customize to get a completely personal solution. The bins are easy to lift and carry, and the lids lock in odors. Made from 70% recycled plastic, VARIERA is good for both you and the planet!

We didn’t think so. But thanks to IKEA 365+ food containers you can turn that excess pasta into delicious leftovers. The snap-and-lock lid prevents spills and creates an aroma-tight seal, so the food you store in the lunch box stays fresh for longer. This means less waste and more satisfaction, so next time you can cook the whole packet!
