Government Center West Green Showcase

IKEA is a Gold Sponsor of the GCW Green Showcase. As part of the showcase, IKEA's Sunrise store installed a comfy lounge area
in the GCW lobby where customers can relax and learn about IKEA's sustainability initiatives. Visitors can now wait and relax in
style while learning, for instance, how IKEA retrofits their existing stores with grey water systems so that roof run-off water can
be used for toilet flushing! Can you imagine how much water would be conserved if similar practices were adopted by other
retailers and businesses in Broward County? To find out more, stop by the lounge!
