Sanitation conditions in coastal barangays are in very poor state. Garbage and trash enveloping coastal waters of communities are a common sight, causing the decline in the state of the marine and coastal environment.

MFI in partnership with the Coron local government and the DENR Coron, piloted the Environment and Sanitation (EnviSan) to clean up coastal areas enveloped in garbage, as well as improve the habits and behaviors of community members on waste management. It is designed to prevent further degradation of the environment through proper waste management, uplift the living conditions and protect the health of the marginalized people through its livelihood and health components.

Components of the program include social mobilization, information campaign, advocacy that helped pass regulation, capacity-building and livelihood opportunities from recyclable waste.

The Young Eco-Savers Program was born in 2009 to teach the next generation the value of efficient waste reduction, recovery and recycling early in life. It instills the value of environmental concern and savings through efficient waste management. The program aims to increase waste recovery and diversion of the community by promoting source segregation and recycling among the students and their families. The program has resulted to the enactment of an Ecosavers Ordinance to provide a legal backbone to sustain the gains of the program.
