Introduce us, Teman Hayat. In 2016, it started merely from a hobby where Taman Hayat fell in love deeply with indoor plants and collected them at our home for pleasure. We believe the more urban our lifestyle, the bigger the need to reconnect with the natural world. Hence we manifest our admiration for plants through Taman Hayat and the #SurelyGreenIsGood movement, which aim to inspire urban citizens to live in harmony with nature. We wish to impact many city dwellers that green living and bonding with plants can lead us to an improved way of living in both tangible and intangible ways.
Together with LindungiHutan, Taman Hayat initiated nature campaigns in four locations in Indonesia. The area is in Puntong Sumiak Hill, Porcupine, Karang Malang Beach, Kendal, Bahagia Beach, Bekasi Regency, and Pari Island, Kepulauan Seribu Regency. Coastal areas that are threatened by abrasion and tidal flooding hamper the livelihoods of local residents. Meanwhile, on Puntong Sumiak Hill, reforestation was carried out because there was little green land. In that area trembesi trees are planted to absorb carbon dioxide. The collaboration between Taman Hayat and LindungiHutan is a real step in protecting the environment and natural ecosystems.
