Darlene Macaranas, manager of the Joeten Susupe store, relayed their company’s commitment to doing their part for the environment.  “Part of the reason we are such firm believers in the work that MINA does is that it provides a way for our community to learn and understand about the need to protect our island resources.”  

Joeten Enterprises has been instrumental in building on this culture of conservation by initiating their Taya (No) Plastic Tuesday program, where all purchases are bagged in reusable bags or boxes.  This program has been successfully ongoing for the past three years.
