IKEA is selling two new rainbow-colored items in honor of Pride month, with a third of proceeds going to charity. 

The Swedish flat-pack furniture retailer has launched a limited-edition version of its classic blue shopping bag, plus a fabulous cover for the portable ENEBY Bluetooth speakers.

These budget items are purchases you can be proud of as they go towards good cause, as well as brightening up your home.

The ENEBY Bluetooth speaker covering costs just $8 and is a simple way to show your support to the LGBT community at home or at a Pride event. 30% of proceeds will go towards GLSEN, a New York-based organization whose mission is to create safe and inclusive schools for LGBT youth.

The charity works to ensure all students experience a supportive K-12 education, with programs such as No Name-Calling Week and an annual Day of Silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment of LGBTQ people in schools.

'Who you share your life and your home with is your choice,' reads the IKEA website. 'We at IKEA want to pay tribute to that freedom and support everyone's right to be themselves.

'This ENEBY rainbow panel is much more than just a front for Bluetooth speakers. It's a statement.'

For Pride, IKEA's famous blue and yellow shopping bag has also been given a colorful makeover. The limited-edition, multi-colored STORSTOMMA bag costs $0.99 and is available in-store and for delivery in select areas.

It's much more durable than you would expect for a bag that's less than a dollar, and with two sets of handles, you can throw it over your shoulder or carry it in your hand. Perfect for packing a picnic or picking up groceries.

The classic bag also comes in a large size which will come in handy on day trips to the beach and for carrying laundry.

Up to $50,000 will be donated to GLSEN from sales. Last month IKEA flew the Progress Pride Flag for the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
