Ikea saves on furniture assembly and that's not all. Eliminate costs on transport and building, without putting revenue on risk? Simply brilliant! Who could have guessed? 

iS IKEA ECO FRIENDLY

3. Third of all, Flat pack furniture is somehow eco-friendly.

The tidy and compact nature of ready to assemble furniture has granted the IKEA home furnishing company the opportunity to save on cardboard along with space and transport (once again). The fewer space units take, the less fuel is wasted, the more hope Mr. Ozone will have! Cheer up you atmosphere lair! Hope is yet not wasted. 

Ikea has it's special eco-friendly bags, invests in solar energy and has lately moved to led lights only. Flat pack furniture is not a 100% fantastic but it sure is headed that way.
