Ongoing through April 22, you can donate your real fur coats and trimmings at Buffalo Exchange at The LAB. All collected furs will be sent to wildlife rehabilitators, where they are repurposed into bedding that nurtures recovering wild animals, providing more warmth and familiarity than options like towels and sheets. These furs help injured and orphaned wildlife by keeping baby animals warm and minimizing human contact during the recovery process.
Since 2006, when Buffalo Exchange first became involved with Coats for Cubs, they have collected and distributed over 13,644 furs. Help Buffalo Exchange make it another record year! To learn more and see photos of some of the animals who have benefited from donated furs, visit CoatsforCubs.com.
Help turn the tide on plastic pollution by shopping at Buffalo Exchange's $1 Earth Day sale! Buffalo Exchange will have a special selection of clothing for $1 a piece and all proceeds from the sale will benefit 5Gryes, a charity working to reduce plastic pollution in our oceans.
Don't forget to BYOB - bring your own bag!
