Bonbio presents circular farming at IKEA One Home, One Planet Days in Kaarst, Germany.
More than 200 sustainability leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators participated at IKEA’s sustainability days in Kaarst, April 3-4. Within the framework for circularity, Bonbio presented the cooperation with IKEA in Sweden regarding circular container farming outside the stores. Guests were offered a nutritious lunch with freshly harvested lettuce.
One Home, One Planet is IKEA’s annual sustainability event, a global gathering within innovation, entrepreneurship and other initiatives that can power the transition to a more sustainable future and planet. The event was hosted by the IKEA store in Kaarst, Germany which opened in 2017 as the most sustainable IKEA store.
Among the speakers were Christiana Figueres, former UN climate diplomate and enabler of the Paris Agreement, Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees and Bertrand Piccard, the visionary behind Solar Impulse and the first round-the-world journey in a solar-powered aircraft.
Through lectures, co-creation workshops and conversations, the participants approached sustainability issues from a variety of industries, sectors, geographies and disciplines with the ambition to actively catalyze solutions and initiatives with a positive impact for people and the planet.
Since the production of food accounts for a large proportion of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, we need to find new solutions for growing food in a more sustainable way. Bonbio presented circular farming in high-tech containers as part of the transition to sustainable, locally produced food.
Bonbio’s farming container was placed outside the IKEA store in Kaarst. Both conference attendees and store visitors engaged with our team in discussions on recycling organic waste, circular farming and circularity. The conference guests were then served a nutritious lunch with freshly harvested lettuce from the farming container.
