As the generation evolves, the world needs more high quality products which are at the same time eco-friendly.
The Mamamayang Sagip Kalikasan also known as Masagka, is the home of bamboo-based products located in the upland village of Banawang in Bagac.
It all started when Mr. Primotibo Bantugan, one of the partnered farmers of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in their reforestation program, met representatives of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
Various trainings and seminars were given to Mr. Bantugan which were all shouldered by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and with the support of the Provincial Cooperative and Enterprise Development Office (PCEDO) Bataan.
Mr. Bantugan proudly shares that all of the materials they use for their products are locally harvested from his bamboo farm located also in Bagac.
Masagka explores different kinds of products such as jewelry box, picture frame, pen holder, chairs, and tables and the number of their clients is increasing.
Suffice it to say that nowadays, Bataan is known not only for the infamous Death March during the World War II but also for its locally made handicrafts using indigenous environment friendly materials making Bataan the top-selling supplier all over the country.
