Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags program

Tokens for Bags® Charities Fall 2016

Every six months we support local charities through our Tokens for Bags® program. Shoppers are encouraged to accept a token instead of a bag for purchases and we donate five cents (the cost of the bag) to a charity of the customer’s choice. Since 1994, we have raised over $656,798 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations through our Tokens for Bags® program, saving 13.1 million bags from polluting the environment.

Find your local Buffalo Exchange below and check out the charities you can give back to.

Free Press Summer Fest

By Buffalo Exchange Houston

While the east coast was having a “ball” June 6-8, the Left Coast was throwing a festival as well. Free Press Summer Fest is an event that happens annually in Houston. Usually the festival is nestled in Eleanor Tinsley Park, with the city of Houston serving as a backdrop, and the Buffalo Bayou as a perimeter. This year due to extreme flooding the festival had to be moved a week before to safer, drier grounds at Reliant Stadium.

Tokens for Bags® – Pink Door

By Tricia G., Buffalo Exchange Tucson

A new year means looking forward to the year to come and new beginnings. For our stores, it also means a whole new collection of empowering nonprofit organizations to support through our Tokens for Bags® program!

One particular charity that focuses on new beginnings is Pink Door in Houston. Pink Door’s mission is to help women begin a new life after fighting cancer through their “My Pink Wish” program. Support means different things for different women, and can range anywhere from building a therapeutic garden to financial assistance.

Fall Fashion

Just because it’s still crazy hot in Houston, doesn’t mean we don’t have our eyes turned towards fall and layers. Besides, almost everywhere in Houston has air conditioning, so we can’t live in shorts and sandals all year.

Style File: Houston (Rice Village)

By Buffalo Exchange Houston (Rice Village)

It is springtime in Houston, Texas! With occasional thunderstorms, our weather has been breezy and beautiful. Our customers are now putting those heavy jackets and sweaters they wore for our unusually long winter away, and taking their lightweight spring clothing out of their closets! It’s all about abstract art prints this season. We are seeing many kinds of abstract prints such as floral prints and art inspired prints. Colors we see often are traditional black and white mixed with pops of vibrant neon, pastel, or gem tone colors. And don’t forget the white shoes! Our customers are wearing girly dresses and preppy denim paired with white loafers and white sandals. Another important thing about their outfits is accessories including leather satchels, hats, and jewelry. Our customers find ways to make their outfits more fun and interesting.

Street Style: Houston

Houston StyleIn Houston, Texas, not only is the hot climate a factor in deciding our wardrobes; local trends are also a big influence. For the guys, we’re seeing a lot of layered tanks, cutoff denim and fun prints, accessorizing with the likes of leather backpacks and suede shoes. As far as the girls go, bohemian chic is still a very big trend with lightweight fabrics and flowing, printed maxi dresses. We’re also seeing a more soft and subtle black/white contrast trending in the area. Houston’s style has to be versatile with the high humidity and substantial heat, but no matter what the weather is like, fashion will always come first.Full Story
