This journey of starting a business, sharing it with millions around the world and maintaining balance in my personal life has often times proved challenging, rewarding, scary, energizing, humbling, and so much more.

Those of you who are moms get what I am saying…there is so much to life here on this Earth, and when I made the commitment to change over our entire product line to eco-friendly packaging it was one of those decisions I knew in my heart and my soul was the right thing to do.  It was my mind, my business-sense-mind, that had to play catch up!

This press release announced our intentions a couple of years back, and this very recent press release made clear that the conversion of all Boca Beth bilingual products for children are now in 100% recycled paper packages with 100% vegetable based inks. 

Why?  So that I will not be contributing to the massive landfill challenges that our future generations will inherit from us.  Let me tell you, it was not the most popular decision with our accountant, but it was with my conscience and with most of YOU and your children!

With love to our planet Earth and to all of you who help me stay in business with your encouraging words of support and your constant enthusiasm for what I do to bring English and Spanish together for little children.  I love you / Te amo…

Happy Educating!  ¡Sea feliz educando!
