Back-
ground

Mangkang Environment Project is answering the needs of preserving the coastal side
of North Java Sea in Mangkang. This area is now in danger due to the abrasion of the
sea, cutting mangrove by local factory and heavy force from the river flows. Garbage
problem was re-raised in the recent years. Lack of local’s awareness about
environmental friendly lifestyle destroys the nature slowly. They also face problem in
integrated garbage management system, moreover there is no daily truck garbage
picker in this area. Local community initiated to make recycle stuff from garbage to
decrease the garbage impact to the nature.

several works including planting mangrove and other trees in seashore, garbage
management discussion to local people and children, renovation of mangrove garden
