Our vision is to develop new ideas that will enhance our rural community while preserving local traditions.
Created in 2009, SustainFloyd is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists the community of Floyd County, Virginia in sustainable, local growth. Our vision is a mix of the past and the future – meaning we work to develop new ideas that will support the next generation of our rural community, while preserving our local traditions and history.
But we can’t support the growth of our community’s next generation alone, which is why we work closely with local and state governments and agencies, local businesses, like-minded non-profits and local citizens. Together we can find ways to develop the financial and ecological health of our community for the well-being of all citizens of Floyd County. But we also join with other communities throughout the region and around the globe to model new ways of living on, working in, and caring for the world around us.
Our project areas focus on efforts to:
- Localize our economy
- Enhance and protect natural and cultural resources
- Advance issues related to energy independence, transportation, waste and recycling, and education
