This is in line with the Perak Tree Planting campaign.

“Although projects under MB Inc involve mining, quarries, housing and hydro plants, we also do our bid to save the environment.
“We also clean the rivers and plant trees in order to have sustainable development,” said Anuar at a press conference.
He also disclosed that the trees are good for avoiding erosion near river banks,” he added.
This initiative has also helpef the Orang Asli community in villages like Kampung Air Bah, Kampong Asu Hulu Perak and Kampung Kerawat where some 9,620 coffee trees have been planted.
The Orang Asli are also given training on planting and maintaining the trees by the coffee tree planting experts so that they can generate income from the yield.
For this project, MB Inc had spent about RM1 million to plant all the 75,000 trees.
Kudos to MB Ic for being a shining example of what a GLC can do for the community and the environment
