West Seattle PCC and Bellevue PCC are now Living Building Challenge Petal-Certified
PCC Community Markets (PCC), one of Seattle’s original grocers and the largest community-owned food market in the U.S., today announced that its West Seattle and Bellevue co-op locations met the world’s most rigorous green building standards, established by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), to become Living Building Challenge (LBC) Petal-Certified. These locations join Ballard PCC, the world’s first grocery store to receive this recognition, in meeting the stringent requirements for the Materials, Place and Beauty Petals in pursuit of ILFI’s LBC Petal Certification. PCC’s work to become LBC Petal-Certified ensures the design of the stores and the building material choices made align with equally high standards for the products allowed on its shelves.
