Tokens for Bags® Charities Fall 2016

Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags program

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.

  1. Hello, we’d love to be considered as a beneficiary for your Tokens for Bags program. our organization is Variety – the Children’s Charity of Northern California and we are getting ready to celebrate our 70th anniversary and we’re looking for lots of fun ways to help celebrate that. Last year we were voted “Favorite Charity” by the readers of 7×7 Magazine! We’d love to hear from you and we’d be happy to cross promote Buffalo Exchange to our network.
