Effective October 1, Ikea will no longer be offering plastic bags in-store.
In the last year, Ikea has been weaning its customers off of plastic bags, charging a fee for each plastic bag and encouraging the purchase of reusable bags.
Ikea reports that 92 percent of its customers have stopped buying plastic bags. Ikea does not offer paper bags, so starting in October it appears that reusable will be the only option.
Yipee! (Do we hear a future challenge?)
