Air pollution is one of the biggest global issues we’re facing today, and IKEA is one of the latest brands to tackle this growing problem. The masterminds at this Swedish company are currently working on a new collection of pollution-reducing curtains.
GUNRID curtains will be their first product to use a newly-developed technology which enables people to purify the air in their homes. Lena Pripp-Kovac, head of sustainability at Inter IKEA Group, hopes this will be the first step towards solving a much bigger problem.
“Besides enabling people to breathe better air at home, we hope that GUNRID will increase people’s awareness of indoor air pollution, inspiring behavioral changes that contribute to a world of clean air,” explained Pripp-Kovac.
She’s fully aware GUNRID curtains won’t magically solve the problem of air pollution, but there’s hope they’ll lead to positive change and enable people to live healthier and more sustainable lives.
IKEA’s new collection will be hitting the stores next year, and we’re hoping their new curtains will look just as good as these old ones.
