Progress toward plastic-free:
PCC Community Markets eliminates more than 80 percent of petroleum-based deli packaging from its stores

Nation’s largest community-owned food market and grocery leader in sustainability to unveil new, open source compostable packaging logo

PCC Community Markets (PCC), the nation’s largest community-owned food market, today introduced a collection of new compostable deli containers to its 11 Puget Sound-area stores.
