Holcim Philippines’ Lugait plant in Misamis Oriental established a butterfly garden in September 2007. The garden is not only an ecological asset, it provides livelihood opportunities for the local community.
In our Lugait plant, you will be surprised to see a butterfly garden. It is said that butterflies not only help enhance biodiversity, but they are also a barometer of a healthy environment.
Today, our Lugait plant is considered an industrial ecotourism center. Students, and even tourists visit our plant because of this, and our herbal garden and orchidarium.
Through our nursery operations, we have been able to propagate endemic species for our reforestation program.
Reforestation has been implemented in 61.64 hectares, with an 89.60% survival rate of trees planted. (Source)
