the Tagimoucia Music Festival scheduled for September 5-6 later this year is aimed at developing Taveuni to become the South Pacific's first-ever "green island".
Organising committee member and resort owner Robin Kelly said this would be the second year for the carnival following on from last year's success event which led to some great developments on the island.
"We have a temporary rubbish dump and government is working hard to get a proper permanent site," she said.
"We also have recycling bins in major centres and plan to have them all over the island."
Ms Kelly said the committee was proud about those achievements.
She said fundraising activities and events leading up to the festival were also being scheduled.
"We are, therefore, inviting residents on the island to join this worthy cause."
