Join PCC and GloryBee Foods in saving the honeybee. Bees not only provide us with honey, but they also pollinate more than one-third of our food crops.
“Bee-friendly” garden plants sold by Home Depot, Lowe’s and other top garden retailers around the country contain neonicotinoid pesticides that can poison bees.

Starting next month, you’ll see a colorful new symbol on the Equal Exchange’s fair trade, organic bulk coffee bins at PCC. The symbol represents the first farmer-owned and -run fair trade certification system and guarantees the coffee comes from small farmers, not large plantations.
