Following a commitment made to AYS by Target Stores last fall, three more giant retail chains will begin to reduce their use of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in their products.


As You Sow’s Associate Director, Michael Passoff, and other shareholders have been in dialogue with several companies. Best Buy, the largest U.S. electronics retailer, set time tables for the phase out of PVC packaging for Best Buy brands beginning in 2008. The company also agreed to identify other products and packaging where PVC will be reduced or eliminated.
