  1. I’m checking with the Friends. In any event, Dolphin advertises a 10% discount at checkout – all you have to do is ask for it.
    The Foundation has also worked with bother supermarkets in the states on tghe bag project.

  2. I would love to have few of these bags, how would I go about purchasing one? It would be great to have the warm thoughts of St. John while protecting the environment of using a reusable bag.

  3. Hi Frank, Could you send info on having a few of these bags sent to the states? It looks like there are a lot of posts about this so maybe selling these bags could raise some money! Thanks.

  4. We are still working at the Friends to determine a way to supply the Haub bag to our stateside followers. It may be available soon on our website but between now and then I will keep you all informed. Thanks for all the interest and support in this on island effort.
