How it all began...

Sylvia Medina is someone who is passionate about the environment and the animals that live in this world.  As a youngster she loved to hike and enjoy the wilderness and especially loved animals. She took this passion and dedicated herself to becoming an Environmental Engineer where she could help make a difference.

Another passion Sylvia found was children!  When her twins were born she knew she wanted to instill in them the passion of being steward of our environment. So when Sylvia's twins were infants - she found herself watching television shows for kids.  This made her realize that there were few programs about environmental stewardship and endangered species preservation for children. So one early morning - about 1:30 am - while rocking her baby girl to sleep she came up with the idea of  creating stories and products that teach children about the environment and the world around them. So the Green Kids Club was created.

With this in mind, she developed the Green Kids Club concept which would help her children as well as other children around the world learn early the environmental habits they could share with others.
