Many people ask, “What is MANG and what does it stand for?”
Simply put, MANG is for the mangroves, and for every product sold we plant a mangrove for our customers.
Creating new life has always been a passion for Keith and me. In 2015 we made our dreams come true with the startup of MANG and our Buy One. Plant One. Initiative.
Mangroves are a critical life source for the environment. They not only provide habitat for multiple types of wildlife, but they also provide the basic nutrients that kick start the cycle of life in the estuary.
We developed our initiative as a way to give back and to further enrich and protect our coastlines. Our mission is to educate and facilitate community projects. Our hope is by 2020 to be locally recognized in Florida by 2020 as a mangrove restoration company.
The importance of mangroves goes far beyond the eye and there is a need for basic education about these environments. As Florida natives Keith and I felt that our schools may be neglecting to teach children about the basic functions of our coastal ecosystems.
As avid fisherman and outdoorsmen, we both recognized the importance of preserving and conserving our coastal habitats. Our goal is to make sure that there is an abundance of wildlife for future generations. Just one new life can make a difference.
We would like to take this chance to thank everyone who has supported our mission thus far. We would not be anywhere without you!
