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 🤙🥥🍉🍊🍍

In response to our friends in Sri Lanka, we've written a piece all about the stunning East - Arugam Bay. If you're travelling to Sri Lanka before November we highly recommend supporting this incredible place, not just for the surf! #ethicaltravel #srilanka #arugambay. Link in bio.

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

Wow! We've reached half way! We would love for you to share this amongst your friends and family so we can deliver more seeds and tools to these villages. We are overwhelmed by the generosity and consideration shown by friends and even complete strangers! It's a small world really and this pandemic has certainly made it seem smaller. Vinaka!

This evening I cycled home after a surf where I made Madhu laugh and chatted about creativity with some local boys in the water. The dogs followed me back as they do everyday and lapped up water on arrival. They just come back to mine for the zen of it, I don’t feed them. People of all ages nod and say ‘Hi!’ Or ‘ ‘kohomida?’ on their cycles and scooters as I ride along the sea wall with the soft swell to my right, palms to my left and dogs trotting along behind me. Yes, I’m lucky to be here, relatively isolated and OK, for now. Maybe this pandemic will force us all to really absorb the power of now and all the natural beauty around us. That’s if you are lucky enough to have access to it of course. For those who don’t, then it’s possibly time to be creative with healthy food and become more aware of your general health. Wherever you are, let’s support each other and we’ll get through this :) 💪🏽🙏
