Through a specific melding process, IKEA converts plastic bottles into laminate sheet. Bottles are cleaned, ground down into flakes, and then melded together to make sheets of foil one-quarter millimeter thick. The foil is applied to the planks using a light glue, and then painted black.
IKEA says that the cabinets are nearly completely - 99.9 percent - made up of recycled materials.
