I've heard of similar issues in the South Pacific. We can't take anything for granted anymore, including the humble coconut tree which had hundreds of uses. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcqC03v409s

🤸Happy international women's day! 🌈To celebrate, we are launching our third fundraiser to buy reading glasses for five outer-island villages in Northern Fiji. These are some of the fantastic women who received glasses in 2019 so it's about time they received updates! Before they received glasses, some couldn't weave let alone read so we really are changing their lives. £3 pays for one pair of glasses and their all-important pouch. Please donate with the link in bio. ❤️🤗

One of the proudest days of Island Spirit's life. We designed and ordered 30 hand woven, Fijian, Fairtrade, yoga mats from the wonderful women of Lavena village on #Taveuni back in 2015. It demonstrates how sharing skills and cultures can be full of benefits for all involved. #ThrowbackThursday World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) #yoga #womeninbusiness.

With the recent news that STA travel have ceased trading in the UK because of Covid-19, we're wondering how on earth can we survive. BUT there is hope! If you run your own gig, remember that being a small business means you are VERSATILE and FLEXIBLE. You can ADAPT. If your cash flow isn't allowing it then fair enough, but until then you can open up to DIVERSIFY. Go get 'em! #businessideas #womeninbusiness #responsibletravel #ecotourism #srilanka #fiji #islandliving #entrepreneurship #positivevibes #gowiththeflow

We've been uncharacteristically quiet for the past few months while we fundraise for our Fijian friends, contemplate what lies ahead and try to iron out our creases to allow Island Spirit's heartbeat to continue into the future. We are working on some great products for Sri Lanka ecotourism and are even pointing our little golden arrow homeward bound to the Great British Isles. 💘 We will keep you posted more frequently now. @Fiji @sltda_srilanka @r_travel) #greentravelpostcovid #entrepreneursincovid

Thanks to someone up there⬆️ 🙏 looking out for us, our fundraiser coincided with the Pacific Seeds for Life (PS4L) initiative. 
We have recently raised $FJD1500 to buy farm tools for three villages in Northern @Fiji. We have also just organised for these seeds from @spc_cps in Suva, to be shipped on the 24 hour boat journey from the main island to #Taveuni on Friday. 
We’re super excited to help start an #organicfarmproject with #Lavena village, even the school children we have previously worked work for a long time are going to get their hands dirty! 
Times are changing so sustainable farming for villages which used to rely on tourism is an essential way to create income, boost health and educate the youth. #gofijigo #fiji 🤙🥥🍉🍊🍍

Cashless has a new ring to it! Fiji and the South Pacific islands have only really recently exchanged barterning, the oldest form of commerce, to using money to serve as a medium of exchange. But recently the exchange of goods and services between two or more parties without the use of money has gone full circle! What an inspiration! Read more here. https://bit.ly/2xYJ6gm
