In a recent post from Stand Together, an organization focused on efforts to improve education, business, communities, and government policy, various organizations and their unique, creative and meaningful gift ideas are featured for the holiday season! This includes Coalfield Development and our social enterprises Saw’s Edge Woodshop and SustianU Clothing.
Stand Together is proud to support social entrepreneurs across the country who offer solutions that empower people to transform their lives through skill-building and employment opportunities. Coalfield Development has launched social enterprises like Saw’s Edge Woodshop and SustainU Clothing to help build community, revitalize and diversify the Appalachian economy.
Saw’s Edge Woodshop is a community-based workplace that makes hand-crafted goods with quality and care. Grit meets creativity here, and entrepreneurs harness the strengths of a small-town community to create new opportunities.
Meanwhile, SustainU Clothing is another West Virginia-based enterprise that is changing the way clothes are made to create a positive impact on people’s lives. The company leverages local production, smart supply chains and inventory control to offer environmentally and socially sustainable apparel that is also affordable.
