The latest in a trend toward more sustainable business practices, flat pack furniture giant IKEA has announced that it will no longer automatically include Allen wrenches with its furniture purchases. "Most everyone already has a drawer full of them," says Noel Wijsmans, VP of IKEA Group. "But we'll still offer them in a bin by the registers for those who don't."
