IKEA Is Testing Furniture Rentals As Part Of Its Sustainability Plan

IKEA imagines a future where people not only rent their apartments, but their furniture as well. As part of a sustainability initiative, the Swedish home retailer says it is experimenting with furniture rental plans for different regions. The model would reduce the amount of furniture that gets thrown out and allow materials to be recycled.

IKEA did not announce when or where these trials are taking place.
