More than 100 staff of Warwick Fiji Resort and Spa and Naviti Resort and Spa on the Coral Coast undertook a clean-up along the Queens Highway last Saturday.

Stepping up their concerns for the environment and taking time out from their leisure activities staff members cleaned up the roadside from Maui Bay to Komave Village, 10-kilometre stretch.

Naviti Resort and Spa general manager John Duxbury said Warwick Fiji Resort and Naviti Resort believed in helping the community.

“This is our area and our tourism responsibilities do not bind us within the four walls, but it goes further than that into villages and communities,” Mr Duxbury said.

“We feel that we have a responsibility to keep the roadside clean from an environmental and tourism point of view.”
The Naviti Resort clean-up team collected rubbish from Maui Bay to Votua Village while the Warwick Fiji Resort and Spa team collected rubbish from Votua Village to Komave Village.

“It is disappointing to see this sight, but it is indicative of other countries facing the same issue. They (other countries) also have clean-up days which are more routine, but in Fiji it means a lot to us than just a mere clean-up. This is not only the resorts’ corporate social responsibility commitment, but also a team bonding exercise for staff members.

Mr Duxbury said villagers and members of community joined in the clean-up.
