MRS. CYNTHIA VILLAR is shown here with a pile of
buko husks that’s usually thrown away by sellers of
young coconuts. The Villar Foundation gathers these
waste materials and extract from the fiber and coir dust
by using a decorticating machine. The fibers are made into twines
for making coco net for erosion control. The coir dust, on
the other hand is an excellent material for making organic
fertilizer when mixed with household and market wastes.
