*ROATAN TREE PLANTING PROJECT*
We are excited to be partnering with the Caribbean Tree Planting Project as part of our Green Communities project. Our 2021 goal is to plant 2000 fruit trees in the Bay Islands, with a focus being on “breadfruit” an up-and-coming superfood that also brings food security, climate change, and environmental benefits. We are looking for local businesses, corporate sponsors, community groups, and schools to partner with and assist with tree planting initiatives. Contact us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
*SUPPORT ROATAN PRODUCTS*
We have had a great response to our #supportroatan t-shirts internationally and locally and are currently looking for local gift-shops, resorts, hotels who are interested in stocking our products, and assisting us in raising funds for local community projects. Contact us for more information: email@example.com*GET SOCIAL FOR ROATAN*
The importance of social media continues to grow, and it's more important than ever to see the local tourism industry represented, promoted and visitors assisted online. We have taken on the management of 4 community groups that assist in tourism development and community projects, if you are interested or work in these areas please consider joining the groups and taking advantage of the free promotional options for local businesses.

Over 60 artisans who produce a range of locally made handicraft products have joined RLM and participate in regular community markets and pop-up events, with training workshops beginning soon. The RLM project is looking for corporate sponsors and event partners so they can continue to grow, sponsorship packages include promotional and marketing benefits across web, social media, and at events.
