Ikea is continuously making waves through environmentally consciousness, vegan offerings and diminishing waste usage, especially in the past few years.

Just this week, the Swedish mega-brand joined the global fight against plastic pollution by committing to completely ridding the company of single-use plastic products from its stores and restaurants by 2020.

According to the Guardian, they also plan to eliminate plastic straws, plates, cups, freezer bags, bin bags, and plastic-coated paper plates and cups. Before that, they launched the vegan hot dog and added more vegan options. And today they announced, via Instagram, their plan to introduce vegan soft serve ice cream to the IKEA Bistro by summer 2020.
