Replace single-use plastics with sustainable products from TheOtherStraw

In the battle against using wasteful plastic, I became introduced to theotherstraw and its sustainable products. It’s a no-brainer that reusable straws are much better than disposable plastic straws, but I had wondered a few things about switching away from plastic straws. 1) How do you keep them clean (enough) and 2) what would they be made of especially if I may use them in a hot beverage. Can it be safe to use long term?

theotherstraw is my new favorite for a few reasons. Keeping it clean is easy with the included eco-friendly cleaning brush made from 100% natural coconut fiber. The straws can be washed in the dishwasher and reused hundreds of times, however hand-washing them in warm water is best for longevity.

The straws are made from organic bamboo in Vietnam and come with a sustainable sip bag for clean storage. Why bamboo? Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, it absorbs greenhouse gasses and absorbs carbon dioxide and releases up to 35% more oxygen than trees to name a few of its many benefits.

However, theotherstraw does not only provide bamboo straws, but they also offer bamboo cutlery and toothbrushes. As well, they also took care of coconut shell waste and create coconut bowls! These very durable real coconut bowls help reduce more environmental waste as billions of coconuts are harvested every year, and most of their shells are either burned as waste or sent to landfill.

50% of theotherstraw profits go towards supporting projects that protect the world’s oceans and marine life. Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in our oceans and killing marine life. Your purchase makes a different in more ways than one. Shop theotherstraw!

Bring More Traffic to Your Website with the 30 Day Traffic Secrets Challenge

I wrote this sponsored post on behalf of Russell Brunson.

Bring More Traffic to Your Website

If you have searched for literature and tips to bringing more traffic to your website or customers to your product, then perhaps you have come across Russell Brunson’s book. I am in middle of his third book, Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers, of the Secrets Trilogy

I have a blog and I don not sell product. However, this 30 Day Traffic Challenge is working fantastic for me because with the tips and workbook I am learning not only how to get more traffic but where to find it and what to do once I find my readers or potential readers.

Russell Brunson

Who is Russell Brunson?

The obvious answer to that is that he is the Author of The ‘Secrets Trilogy‘. He is also an entrepreneur or small business owner. He is the owner of a $100M software company called ClickFunnels a few years ago and when customers were not coming in and he feared he would not be able to make it he set out to try and gain new customers. It was harder than he thought and he and his team dug in and started a journey of learning where they could find and how to attract new customers. They found them his company became the fastest-growing non-venture backed software company in the world. He has gathered all of the tips and made them available in his book Traffic Secrets.

Traffic Secrets Book Review

I have struggled lately with views. They remain at a plateau and it is so hard to find new followers. I know I give out great product reviews and gift guides. When a reader does find me, they tend to stay but naturally I am not very much of an extrovert and I think that comes out in my blog and the lack of ‘going out there’ and finding people.

As I dove into Traffic Secrets I began to see how to master evergreen traffic strategies in order to fill my website. Then as I worked through the paired workbook activities I am learning how to create funnels with my dream customers (I actually have a dream customer he helped me create in the beginning of the book)!

I am not through the entire book yet as there are exercises you do as you read through the chapters so you actually begin finding and keeping those readers beginning with the first chapter! This isn’t a book you read and one day ‘get to it’. This is a guide, a hand-holding bible for your website to actually take all of your hard work and actually gain customers and followers.

gain website traffic

Every year, tens of thousands of businesses start and fail because the entrepreneurs don’t understand this one essential skill which is understanding and practicing the art and science of getting consumers to find you. Bring More Traffic to Your Website!

If you are eager or in need of learning key strategies to increase your site traffic, then completing this 30-day challenge is for you!

You can find the book by Russell Brunson, Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customer right here!

How often do you clean your bathroom? Now how often do you Disinfect Your Electronic Devices? Gross!
