Sustainable tourism is critical for our future, says Tourism Fiji CEO Brent Hill.

Speaking on the occasion of the 2024 Global Recycling Day, Mr Hill said from a tourism perspective, the occasion was all about keeping Fiji beautiful.

“Over the course of the year, we have seen some significant changes,” he said.

“Resorts are starting to make use of the various bins and one of the things that I am happy about is that some of our main tourism source markets such as Australia, NZ, US is that they are very used to recycling, so we have seen the bins being used properly.”

Mr Hill said well-known picnic sports like Wailoaloa, Pacific Harbour, Natadola and Suva, were littered with rubbish, “so the onus is on all of us”.

“This is something that we all can do to look after our waste and keep Fiji beautiful.

“We invite everybody to play a role and really make some effort.

“Talk to everyone in your workplace and make some meaningful sustainable change.”
