Newspeak

This was on IKEA's website in reference to a particle board desk:

Environment:
Renewable material (wood).
Possible to separate for material or energy recovery.

So basically it should read:

Environment:
Trees will grow back, if we plant them.
In a post apocalyptic world you could probably burn this in a barrel, ignore the glue fumes, and huddle around it for some warmth.
