Ikea is embarking on a massive environmental project this month, introducing corrugated cardboard pallets instead of wooden in a move intended to make its 10 million pallets used annually more sustainable and cost-efficient. The furniture retailer previously tested recycled polypropylene plastic loading ledges as an alternative to wooden pallets. As Bloomberg Businessweek notes, the company could also save an estimated $193 million per year by scrapping wooden pallets. [image via Core77]
