Have Ikea build a store in Defreestville, NY

Everyone I know LOVES Ikea yet the closest store in 2.5 hours away! There is a new plaza now signing leases, that was highly disputed by the residential neighbors in the past, at the very busy intersection of Rt 4 and Rt 43 in Defreestville, NY. I really feel that being that everyone loves Ikea it would allay any fears and tensions as well as bringing a beloved store to us all. This area is perfect for Ikea and I believe they would agree if only though knew we existed. the following link is from the local newspaper giving more details on this site.  Please sign my petition!

Boycott Cot Bumpers

Cot Bumpers. Those cute and pretty blankets you hang up round the side of your baby's cot to stop them banging their head. Did you know they can kill your baby? The UK National Health Service, National Childbirth Trust (NCT), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the Lullaby Trust all advise against the use of cot/crib bumpers. The NCT, for example, advises "The safety of cot bumpers is questionable because of the risk of suffocation and/or strangulation. They can also be used to climb on when your baby becomes more mobile so they're not recommended."  The AAP adds " there is no evidence that bumpers protect against injury, but they do carry a potential risk of suffocation, strangulation or entrapment because infants lack the motor skills or strength to turn their heads should they roll into something that obstructs their breathing." A study by Washington University School of Medicine, published today (24 November 2015) in the Journal of Pediatrics found that 48 infant deaths from 1985-2012 were specifically attributed to cot bumpers. An additional 146 infants were involved in cot bumper incidents in which the babies nearly suffocated, choked or were strangled. So, you may ask, why can I still buy cot bumpers in the shops? Well, in the UK at least the cogs of government turn slooooowly. The UK government released a statement "Although there has been a British Standard covering cot bumpers since 1977 (BS 1877-10:2011), some time ago there was recognition that a European wide safety standard was needed to address such products sold throughout the EU. The resulting draft European Standard (EN 16780:2014) aims to identify the hazards and requirements necessary to minimise risks for cot bumpers. This Standard is currently under review by the British Standards Institute (BSI) and open to public comments." That was way back in 2014. What's happened since? Not a lot.. How long does it take to listen to the NHS, NCT, AAP Lullaby Trust and the rest? Cot bumpers kill, they need to be taken off the shelves of retailers NOW! So what can we do about it? Well you can sign this petition to show retailers that we know they are selling a dangerous product. Essentially risking babies' lives for the profit motive. We can share this petition with our friends and relatives and ask them to boycott cot bumpers too. We can contact retailers directly and tell them how angry we are that they continuing to stock cot bumpers. Please sign this petition. We can't wait for the government to take action, this is too important and far too urgent. Tell your friends, tell your family, tell the retailers!

Join our #NoMoreFolding Movement!

Anti-folding enthusiasts unite!   Do you HATE folding? How many times have you washed your clothes, dumped them into a pile in your room and then been too tired to fold them? Do they sit on your bed, or on the back of your chair, getting more and more wrinkled day by day, stressing you out until you just chuck them back in the hamper again? Don’t let the antiquated folding process stand in the way of a clean shirt and a neat bedroom! Or a clean bedroom and a neat shirt! There’s a product on the drawing board - the only product - that can end folding now!the arc shelf! the arc shelf’s unique curved design lets you put away a t-shirt, sweater or sweatshirt by simply laying it down and giving it a quick flip. No more folding, and the creases and wrinkles that go with it. Shirts and sweaters go on faster, come off neater. Works for pants and skirts too! But the arc shelf needs your help - help in getting a partner who can put this shelf on store shelves and into your bedroom as soon as possible. Sign our petition, and let’s get the Big Flat Board complex to get ahead of the curve, get this darn thing built and stop the madness! #NoMoreFolding

Open an IKEA in Nashville

Nashvillians are hurting the environment with gas and lumber, because IKEA is not accessible to them. They are driving to Atlanta, GA and emitting dangerous fumes and using large amounts of gasoline. They are forced to go to Home Depot or their own backyard to cut down trees and build their own furniture. We, the people of Nashville, are seriously oppressed with the absence of an IKEA, forcing us to shop at inhumane corporations such as Walmart.

  • At IKEA, we believe in people In the latest issue of our customer magazine IKEA FAMILY LIVE we ran a feature about two women, Kirsty and Clara, living in England with their child. The article appeared in 24 countries but not in Russia where a law prevents us from publishing it. It is a law that has been widely criticized but one that we have to comply with. However, we wanted to take the opportunity to speak about what the IKEA values mean and what we stand for. This is why the current online version of the magazine in 25 countries, including Russia, contains this letter from IKEA Group: "At IKEA, we believe in people. We are guided by our vision – to help create a better everyday life for the many people. We also believe you can be yourself as an IKEA co-worker, an IKEA customer or in your home. We do our best to stand for equal opportunities and support the human rights of all people. And every co-worker can expect fair treatment and equal opportunities whatever their ethnicity, religion, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation or age. This guides us and inspires us when we work together with our colleagues and the people in our value chain. After all, it’s our differences that make us great! Petra Hesser, Human Resources, & Steve Howard, Sustainability, IKEA Group" As an employer, we work purposefully and in a structured way to promote equal rights and equal opportunities. It is part of our code of conduct for everyone working for the IKEA Group and it is also a part of our diversity and inclusion approach. We want the way we communicate our offer in different commercial channels to mirror the world around us and we believe that publishing an article featuring a lesbian couple in 24 countries is a good example of that. In some of these countries the subject is still considered to be controversial. In the long term, we believe that we can have a positive influence on societies in the countries where we operate by constantly working based on our values. Best regards, Greg Priest, Policy & Compliance Manager, IKEA Group
