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.
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!!!!
