Nylon mentioned Buffalo Exchange in “5 Things I Learned From Living Zero Waste” on January 24, 2017: “Buying recycled clothing is significantly more rewarding than fast fashion…I hit up my local Buffalo Exchange to shop for secondhand threads. My mission? To find a party look that stood out among a sea of Zara knockoffs. I scored a unique pair of square-toed metallic gold heels and an embroidered velvet dress. I looked great, and the fact that I shopped responsibly made me feel that much more confident.”
