I’m already looking forward to their tasty Swedish meatballs, lingonberry jam, and 75 bike racks they plan to install, but now comes word that their UK division has given out 9,000 folding bikes to their employees.
IKEA’s UK manager (as reported by Carlton Reid of Bike Biz UK) says,
“The bike is a fun present but there is a serious message. We all have a responsibility to do what we can to protect the environment.”
This bikey Christmas gift is yet another sign that IKEA has their priorities straight and a company with this mentality will be a welcome addition to Portland.
