IKEA might be your go-to for snuggly new sheets and doonas, but now the Swedish retailer is keen to help our four-legged mates get a good night's sleep, too. And you can help the cause, simply by donating some old linen.

From July 6 to 14, IKEA Tempe is hosting a textiles take-back program, collecting old and unused bedding to be upcycled into comfy beds for animals in need of adoption. Pop in store and drop off any of your pre-loved blankets, towels, sheets, quilts and quilt covers, as long as they're washed, clean and in acceptable quality. You can find the full guidelines here. The textiles will then be distributed to RSPCA shelters across the state.

Just think: you'll get to clear out the back of that linen cupboard and make a dent in the 500,000 tonnes of textiles that end up in Aussie landfill every year, all while helping some cute fluffers sleep a whole lot easier this winter.

If you're keen for a cuddle, drop off your old wares on one of IKEA Tempe's pet adoption days. On Saturday, July 6 and Thursday, July 11, from 11am–2pm, you'll get to meet some of the cute NSW cats and dogs currently in search of their forever homes.
