The Board of Directors of the Surfrider Foundation — an international nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to the protection of the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches through conservation, activism, research and education — presented Livingston with the award, given to supporters who have made an especially outstanding contribution in their efforts on behalf of Surfrider Foundation that is worthy of special recognition. Livingston planned and organized “Surf Day” Dollar Day Sales 2004-05, in which Buffalo Exchange stores across the country raised a total of over $51,000 for Surfrider Foundation. All proceeds from Sale items, sold for one dollar each in celebration of Earth Day each year, went to Surfrider. Surfrider’s Board of Directors commended Buffalo Exchange for “increasing awareness of beach and coastal issues in communities across America,” notably in cities outside Surfrider’s chapter network.

Demonstrating that environmentally friendly Tucson companies can positively impact national charities, Earth Day benefits at Buffalo Exchange stores have raised over $167,000 since 1997, including fundraisers for The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Buffalo Exchange’s involvement with Surfrider was described in the paperback Testify! How Remarkable Organizations are Creating Customer Evangelists (“Marketing as retail education,” 9/04). Buffalo Exchange is the only company representing Arizona as one of 18 top customer-focused companies profiled in Testify, selected for their success with customer evangelism, taking word-of-mouth marketing to a higher level.

Buffalo Exchange is a sustainable company that works to protect the environment by reusing and recycling clothing. The E.P.A. estimates 10.6 million tons of textiles were generated in 2003, or 4% of total U.S. municipal solid waste. Almost half of the 2.5 billion pounds of postconsumer textile waste prevented from entering the solid waste stream is recycled as secondhand clothing, according to the Council for Textile Recycling. So trading used clothing has a positive environmental impact. Buffalo Exchange donates to local nonprofit agencies in the community through its Tokens for Bags program, which has generated nearly $240,000 in donations to hundreds of nonprofit groups since 1994, saving 4.8 million bags. Shoppers are encouraged to accept a token instead of a bag for purchases, and Buffalo Exchange donates five cents to a charity of the customer's choice.

Buffalo Exchange is unique because clothing and accessories are bought, sold and traded directly with store customers. Used clothes can be traded for any item in the store, including jewelry and new clothing. The ever-changing inventory includes designer wear, basics, vintage, jeans, leather, and one-of-a-kind items. As of Feb 2007, the resale clothing store chain has 29 stores and 3 franchises in 12 states, with over $43 million a year in sales.
