Hill adds that coming from a tourism proposition it is in their best interest to keeping Fiji beautiful.

“On the weekends, public holidays if you go down to the beach afterwards or some of beautiful picnic spots there’s a lot of rubbish, you know Wailoaloa, Natadola, Pacific Harbor, Suva, so the onus is on all of us this is something that we all can do to look after our wastes and keep Fiji beautiful.”

Hill emphasizes the need for people to engage in conversations about maintaining a litter-free environment with friends, both at home and in the workplace, encouraging collective awareness of its importance.
