Here’s a chance to buy, sell and trade trendy vintage & used clothing/accessories, giving them a second life and avoiding contributing to the demand and waste of clothing pollution … all while helping out the Food Bank!
Through Buffalo Exchange’s Tokens for Bags® program, shoppers are offered a token in place of a bag, which they can donate to one of three local charities. For each token, they donate five cents to that charity. Every token a customer donates represents a plastic bag that wasn’t added into circulation.
From now until the end of the year, the Food Bank is one of Pittsburgh Buffalo Exchange’s Featured Local Charities:
Western Pennsylvania Conservancy
Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank
Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse
Be sure to visit them in the South Side! 1214 E Carson St, Pittsburgh, PA 15203
