Ikea is conducting a tiny home on wheels giveaway to help promote sustainable living.

First unveiled in late 2020 in partnership with Vox Creative and Curbed, the tiny home is a Vista Boho XL Escape Home that can be attached to a vehicle and towed anywhere.

The 187-square-foot home contains a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom, largely furnished with Ikea furniture and eco-friendly touches.

The tiny home’s kitchen contains pieces from Ikea's Kungsbacka series, which are made out of recycled wood and bottles. The home also boasts other sustainable features, such as LED lights, solar panels and water-saving faucets.

To enter the contest, Ikea has been posting clues to a puzzle on its Instagram account, creating a social media scavenger hunt that will lead participants to finding a six-letter password. Once the password has been identified, participants must enter the password, submit an essay on why living sustainably is important, as well as an Ikea family number by May 14.

For more information on how to enter the contest, participants can visit the Ikea website.
