Properties look for viable alternatives to reduce plastic footprint


Treasure Island Resort and Vuda Marina have made a commitment to reduce and eliminate consumption of single use plastics. This includes plastic straws, plastic bags, and take away containers and so on.

Treasure Island Resort general manager Craig Powell made the remarks during the World Ocean Day 2018 celebration on the resort on Friday. He said: “We are searching for viable alternatives to these products in a bid to reduce our plastic footprint.

“We need to make changes to our daily lives, make small decisions every day that can help to reduce the impacts on our ocean. “Say no to the straw in your drink, say no to plastic bags in the supermarket, dispose of trash properly, fish sustainably, tread lightly and protect our precious natural resources for future generations.” He added that there is a must to act now and to protect all aspects of our marine and coastal environments.

Let's Save Our Turtles

Out of the seven species of turtles in the world, four species are common in Fiji’s water, making its conservation efforts pivotal.  According to the World Wildlife Fund Pacific, the four species of turtles found in Fiji are also on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. The four species, according to WWF Pacific, are the hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricate), the Pacific leatherback (Dermochelys Coriacea) turtles which are now critically endangered with the loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and green (Chelonia mydas) turtles listed as endangered. A major threat for turtles in Fiji not only includes illegal, unsustainable harvesting, accidental capture, but also turtles, like humans, are not immune to the impacts of climate change.

Virtual Tour for Resort Property

Treasure Island is now the first Fijian island to have an official Google Street View Tour installed directly on to Google Maps. Group general manager Robert Wade said with the age of technology they felt it was important to offer as many options as they could for the consumer to get a feel of the island paradise. Having the virtual tour on Google maps means more exposure for the resort as well as giving the consumers more in terms of what they can expect when they arrive on the island. When users search for Treasure Island Fiji on Google, they will see an option on the Treasure Google Business listing to “See Inside/Street View”.

Resort Assists Locals

Treasure Island Resort continues to support four villages from the Vuda District during cyclone recovery. While the village was relying on generators because of powerline damage, the resort gave 200 litres of fuel to help the supply of power at Viseisei Village. Another initiative launched last week is a mosquito control program. Treasure Island Resort general manager Robert Wade said this was a proactive approach to deal with the threat of increasing cases of mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue, Zika and chikungunya after Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston. In conjunction with the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization, Mr Wade said the resort had committed to a month-long systematic spraying to target mosquito populations in four villages of the Vuda District: Viseisei, Lauwaki, Lomolomo and Nabare.
