H.R. 891 aims to strengthen the current law and protect consumers and animals by outlawing the import of fur from raccoon dogs and requiring all garments trimmed with fur to be labeled, regardless of value. Invited by The HSUS, Buffalo Exchange officially endorsed H.R. 891 on Mar 5, 2007, joining Models with Conscience and Project Runway winner and fashion designer Jay McCarroll. An investigation by The HSUS showed that items made with fur trim from domestic dogs and raccoon dogs are often mislabeled as "faux," labeled as another species, or not labeled at all. It is illegal under the Dog and Cat Fur Prohibition Act to import, export, sell or advertise any domestic dog fur in the United States. Fur from other animals must be identified with a label, but only if the value of the fur exceeds US$150.

Now through Earth Day on Sunday, Apr 22, 2007, Buffalo Exchange stores are asking customers to sign petitions in support of The Dog and Cat Fur Prohibition Enforcement Act. Buffalo Exchange also continues to accept Coats for Cubs on behalf of The HSUS through Earth Day. Give your furs back to the animals! Bring your real fur apparel, including fur trims, fur accessories (such as hats, gloves, and muffs), and shearling to any Buffalo Exchange and let us know it’s a donation for Coats for Cubs. Since your donation is not being purchased by Buffalo Exchange, condition is unimportant. The furs are used as bedding to provide comfort for orphaned and injured wildlife. To claim a tax deduction, please mail your fur directly to The HSUS, Attn: Coats for Cubs, 2100 L Street NW, Washington, DC 20037. For more info, visit CoatsForCubs.org or Hsus.org.

Buffalo Exchange (buffaloexchange.com) is a sustainable company that works to protect the environment by reusing and recycling clothing. Earth Day benefits at Buffalo Exchange stores have raised over $167,000 for environmental causes since 1997, including fundraisers for The HSUS and The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 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 March 2007, the resale clothing store chain has 29 stores and 3 franchises in 12 states, with over $43 million a year in sales.
