Airbnb Battle: Corporate Interests Oppose Private Rentals Local governments and hotels are struggling to come to terms with the growing phenom- enon of Airbnb room rentals, which help residents find short-term paying guests that often provide an economic lifeline to help them pay their bills, rent or mortgage. It’s an affordable, convenient and comfortable alternative for travelers. Critics claim the service removes affordable


housing units and official hotel rooms from the market by turning suitable apartments into unofficial hotels. Consequently, proposed ordinances are in the works in several U.S. metropolitan areas where Airbnb entrepre- neurs and industry groups are also active in trying to shape future laws. Other on-demand grassroots industries


such as ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft, which have flourished in unregulated “gray areas”, have learned they need to employ teams of lawyers and lobbyists to fight a stream of restrictive laws and lawsuits.

retailer IKEA is introducing a new line of “no waste” products that includes seating, vases and kitchen cabinets made of recycled materials. IKEA hopes that the design will help people see waste not as garbage, but as just another material that can be used in creating new and beautiful things. The Kungsbacka kitchen


employs affordable, sustainable supplies that look stylish, includ- ing cabinet doors incorporating recycled plastic bottles and recy- cled wood; the entire cabinet is said to be 99.9 percent recycled. The Odger chair is 70


percent recycled plastic and 30 percent renewable wood. The design, available in a range of colors and wood finishes, is the result of collaboration between Swedish designers at Form Us With Love and eschews the environment-harming plastics of other chairs. IKEA also melts recycled


glass to turn it into beautiful vases. Each mouth-blown vase is unique, thanks to the materials.
