Celebrate Earth Day with Boca Beth Bilingual Products Giveaway

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

We decided as a company to be the first children’s recording artist and edutainment company to go green in 2008!

What exactly does that mean?  We changed all of our packaging to feature 100% recycled paper (no more hard plastic jewel cases or amray boxes for our Boca Beth CDs and DVDs any longer) plus 100% vegetable based inks. 

1st-song-cover 

It took some re-working of the front and back covers of our bilingual music CDs, but then we got to add the lyrics sheet into the package which thrilled our existing customer base.

 

I am still amazed that other companies who cater to the younger crowd (ages birth – eight) do not follow suit.  If we are truly in this business because we care about the future of these young children’s world, then shouldn’t we have responsibility to the way in which we package these CDs and DVDs?  It was an easy choice for me personally, and professionally I feel the extra cost involved will be absorbed by the good karma our actions represent!

 

In honor of being environmentally aware as a children’s multimedia company we would like to offer a Giveaway of our three eco-friendly packaged Boca Bethmusic CDs (My First Songs in Spanish / Mis primeras canciones en Inglés, Sing Along with Boca Beth / Canta con BocaBeth and Sing Praise for Children / Canta la alabanza para los niños)and our one eco-friendly packaged DVD (I Like Animals / Me gustan los animales)  …. retail value is $54.00!!!!

 

To enter do one or all of the following (the more you do, your chances of winning increase!!!!):

  • Comment below about other musical artists you have noticed going 100% green with their packaging – they can be adult artists.  (100% means no plastic card insert in the case!!!!)
  • Tweet about this giveaway, and send me the link back to the tweet please.
  • Blog about Celebrating Earth Day with Boca Beth on your own blog, and send me the link back to your blog post please.
  • Subscribe to my blog (where it says to Subscribe to our posts) and subscribe to our Boca Beth Buzz newsletter (look for the picture of BOCA our puppet in the box at the right side of this site and click there)

Good luck!  ¡Buena suerte!  This giveaway ends Sunday, April 26th at 5 pm EST!  Winner announced Monday, April 27th before I travel to the National Head Start Conference to present workshops on how fun and easy this introducing Spanish and English to little kids thing can be using our music & movement Boca Beth method!

Music Monday from Boca Beth Bilingual Beats for Children

Monday, April 13th, 2009

And we’re off!  Each Monday we will offer fun bilingual music that your child can learn some Spanish and English from (And hey!  Moms and teachers and grandmas and dads and aunts and child care providers tell me they learn right along with the children!).

Since last week’s free download of our Boca Beth bilingual song titled Rappin’ the Spanish Alphabet was such a big hit off of our second Boca Beth music CD for children, I thought I would offer a song from our first and best-selling bilingual CD titled My First Songs in Spanish / Mis primeras canciones en Inglés (because remember, here at Boca Beth we introduce Spanish to English-speaking families and English to Spanish-speaking families).

Want a FREE MP3 version of our Boca Beth #1 hit song titled   Me gusta contar / I Like to Count ?!?!?!

Click right here amigas/amigos/friends!  3-me-gusta-contar

 Next Monday – Look for an amazing children’s video of bilingual music and movement fun for FREE!
