THE Fijian Resort and Spa proved its commitment to Earth Hour by giving the financial gifts from its guests to the World Wildlife Fund for Nature Pacific.

While marking the Earth Day Thursday Tie Dye activity, the resort promised to help WWF's solar power and tank projects.

In addition, it has also committed to providing about 200 solar lights for children in remote communities that are part of the resort's Embrace projects.

General manager Michael Monks said the two projects provided a way of integrating their ongoing work with global efforts to raise awareness of the environment.

"We are proud to partner with the WWF Pacific team here in Fiji for this worthy cause as the community is something close to our heart," he said.

"Here at Yanuca, we have purchased around 200 solar lamps that we will distribute to our Embrace schools."
