Modern living generates garbage. An ever increasing amount of it. Finding a way to manage all this waste is a huge challenge, especially for an island nation like Fiji. Our ancestors here were acutely in tune with the natural environment, fashioning tools, crockery, and even carrier bags and tin foil of sorts from nature before the invention of modern day conveniences. Join a fun family picnic to the beach in the outer islands and you will likely see perfect examples of these for yourself.
