During these visits I have seen many improvements to Rarotonga’s infrastructure, but unfortunately the ongoing issue of litter and the burning of toxic plastic waste seems to endure.
May I be so bold as to suggest that the children be educated from an early age, regarding the importance of recycling.
If this is already happening, then that’s fantastic news, as hopefully the younger generation will be able to assist their elders in protecting this extraordinary piece of heaven to survive and not to go down the same path of pollution, that so many other islands in the world seem to now be suffering.
It's so disheartening to see pockets of rubbish still littering the ground, but most frustratingly, the damage caused to the health of the locals and visitors by the continual burning of plastic and other hazardous waste.
I awoke at 3am this morning to find our home full of toxic smoke which burnt my eyes...having to pull the sheet over my head to breathe. Why is this still happening I ask myself? When recycling is readily available to everyone here now. Please to all the beautiful people of Rarotonga and visitors.. Keep your paradise clean.. inside and out..you’re so worth it!
