Capitalize on the Potential of Your BigCommerce Platform

Partner with Our BigCommerce Agency

Since 2018, FluidRank has been a top-rated, full-service BigCommerce agency and elite BigCommerce partner. FluidRank helps eCommerce merchants elevate the performance and functionality of their online presence, providing services such as BigCommerce web design, BigCommerce development, BigCommerce migration services, and a multitude of other digital marketing services. Our BigCommerce experts have been considered the authority on extended BigCommerce support services and enterprise-level advanced customization. We approach every project with a unique lens, accounting for the client’s industry, target audience, and distinct challenges. Our BigCommerce specialists serve as consultants to uncover opportunities and merge them with our expertise to deliver custom solutions that address client pain points and create spectacular user experiences.

Sagebrook Home is a retailer of home design accessories that deals primarily in B2B markets. Their store was based on a platform that was proprietary to its industry but limited their growth. FluidRank seamlessly switched their business to BigCommerce and provided a completely customizable array of features and tools to enhance their visibility and sales. Our BigCommerce migration services offered Sagebrook unprecedented control to customize customer service and price management while drastically reducing micromanagement. We also optimized their conversion funnel by making it easier for customers to find what they needed in fewer steps. We leveraged BigCommerce’s open API and out-of-the-box functionalities to create a more enjoyable yet practical experience for Sagebrook’s customers. One example is the creation of a “complete the collection” feature that allows customers to discover complementary products, thus increasing shopping cart size averages. Sagebrook reported a traffic increase of 63% after five months with FluidRank.

Mac Me an Offer specializes in buying used Apple products and allowing its customers to maximize the value they can get from them. The company was in need of more powerful and customizable features that were not available on their platform. The FluidRank BigCommerce development team helped them seamlessly switch to BigCommerce and leverage its raw power to provide a unique experience to users who wanted to easily sell their used Apple products. Now users are in total control of the information they input and can get a fast and accurate representation of what Mac Me an Offer would pay for their devices and peripherals. This is all done through an automated tool specifically made for Mac Me an Offer which allows them to manage the app without the need to hire additional developers. Our BigCommerce developers also created an API that integrates Mac Me an Offer to its sister site, drastically increasing their potential to convert.
Westlake Dermatology is a provider of dermatological services as well as resources for education and hair and skin care products. The company boasts a very content-heavy web presence in the health industry. They provide educational resources about hair and skincare products, and only a portion of their website is dedicated to sales. Our BigCommerce developers specifically designed a custom API to integrate the content and SEO-focused features of WordPress, with the advantages of eCommerce-centric capabilities of BigCommerce. The result was a seamless combination of the best of both worlds, and the impact it had on their success is undeniable. Our BigCommerce agency created effective headless eCommerce solutions that allowed Westlake Dermatology to expand their sales capabilities and conversions without sacrificing their content-rich and SEO-optimized blog.
Divinity Clergy Wear is a retailer of clerical vestments, clergy shirts, and accessories for the devout. The store had a practical-yet-limited aging site design that was not optimized for user experience. Factors like bounce rates and internal CTRs were not stellar, and it had a lot to do with how the page was presented and the lack of a clear customer journey. Our BigCommerce website design experts completely re-designed their store, taking full advantage of the features that make BigCommerce one of the most powerful online sales tools. Our focus on BigCommerce SEO had an extremely positive effect on keyword positioning, propelling many target keywords to the top positions on the search engine results. Factors like bounce rates, session duration, and conversions also saw a visible increase after just a few months

Why choose us for your BigCommerce development?

We’re one of the top BigCommerce agencies

We have the expertise to build out your Bigcommerce design just the way you want it. It all starts by listening. With a genuine interest in your business, we work with you to learn as much as we can about your company, your industry, and your vision for how you want your store to look and function. The sky really is the limit with Bigcommerce design. There is very little that we can’t do with such a robust platform.

Many of our clients choose to take an active part in their online store project. We welcome that, and we encourage you to get familiar with the system by uploading products, adding content pages, and completing the BigCommerce store settings. However, we are here for you every step of the way, and we will deliver whatever level of service you need to have a successful store launch.

We have years of experience working with the platform. We are the right choice for building and customizing the perfect website to grow your company.

Not only is FluidRank a Bigcommerce Designer, but our team also includes trained marketing professionals who know Internet Marketing, BigCommerce SEO, Google Adwords, Social Building, Email Marketing, and offline marketing.

We can help you maximize your online investment and build not only a great-looking, great-functioning eCommerce store but also help you implement strategic marketing moves to get more traffic and make more sales.

BigCommerce SEO

Search engine optimization (SEO) is imperative to having a successful business on Bigcommerce. FluidRank has worked with multitudes of clients on this platform, and we have been able to increase each client’s site traffic and conversion rates. This is because the SEO specialists at FluidRank are extremely knowledgeable about how the CMS platform interacts with search engine algorithms. This knowledge enables us to customize the Bigcommerce platform with search engine optimization in mind. Working within a CMS platform’s framework is different than simply optimizing a regular site. As a result, it is a lot more technical to optimize a Bigcommerce site than one that did not need a CMS.
As an SEO Agency, FluidRank will set up your Bigcommerce site with search engine rankings in mind. After all, having a website that gets little to no traffic does your business little good. Our team will set up your Bigcommerce website to get as much traffic as possible, and subsequently, conversions. In fact, we can create a site on this platform that can generate revenues around the clock.

You’d hire a professional contractor to build your brick and mortar storefront. Why should an online storefront be any different? FluidRank is an Elite BigCommerce partner available to bring our unique expertise to any BigCommerce project. Just take a look at our reviews and case studies from other BigCommerce clients. We’re a reliable partner that has helped hundreds of BigCommerce merchants improve their store, or launch it the right way.

Benefits of Working with a Qualified BigCommerce Developer

Hiring a team of BigCommerce developers – especially Elite BigCommerce developers like our team here at – can offer far-reaching benefits for your online business, ranging from an improved UX to the creation of custom functionality to a website interface that features a modern aesthetic and superior brand integration.
Here are some things you should consider before you hire your next team of eCommerce customer website developers. Experience with the platform pays dividends for your BigCommerce store.

Proficiency and Experience with the Platform

When it comes time to hire a developer, it pays to hire a developer that is thoroughly experienced with your eCommerce platform. There are several good reasons for this.

Experience with your platform means that your developer should be able to execute your project in a timely manner and with fewer resources than another developer or development team that wasn’t experienced with it. The more experience a developer has with BigCommerce themes and Bigcommerce customizations, the more efficiently they’ll be able to make adjustments to your theme, integrations, or site hierarchy. Fewer time and resources may account to cost savings for you, and also as a safeguard of quality assurance. The more experienced a team is, the less likely they will be to need to troubleshoot an excess of bugs during the support period after handing over the deliverables.

Developing a More Professional, More Capable Looking BigCommerce Website

The more experience a BigCommerce developer has with the BigCommerce platform, the more capable that team will be to produce a finished website design and interface that looks and feels professional. It’s important to remember that the user experience provided with a website is not purely visual and that all of those other features are affected by the proficiency of the development team handling the project.

For example, load speeds, bugs associated with integrated tools, the arrangement of elements and the layout of the website itself will all deeply affect the user experience, in addition to its visual hierarchy. BigCommerce developer experts with a long history of success and a long list of credentials are more capable of delivering polished finished products.

Assist with Brand Integration

Physical packaging is brand integrated; shouldn’t your website be?

In lieu of a physical storefront, customers will be shopping online at your website. The website itself – how it looks and feels – is all customers will have to work with in order to form an emotional association with your brand. Unless, of course, they convert into paying customers and actually buy your goods or services.

But they have to get there, and a website that is unprofessionally designed, lacking proper brand integration does not make a strong play for customer attention. If it can’t sell itself, how can it sell your products?

We are BigCommerce Elite Certified and have many combined years of experience working magic with the BigCommerce platform, designing and developing online stores that are the envy of their brick and mortar counterparts.

We balance text and imagery, create logos, integrate apps and proprietary tools, and give your website the sleek lines that you’d expect from a professionally designed floorplan. Our BigCommerce web developers and designers put the same care and effort into each and every eCommerce store we develop as architects put into the design of upscale retail establishments – and it shows.

 

Fixing Bugs and Preventing Downtime

Do bugs annoy you?

That’s rhetorical. They annoy your customers, too. Bugs on an eCommerce website are a roadblock to good business and they are disastrous to credibility. Bugs on a BigCommerce store are like a load of flyers for your competitor plastered all over the windows of your brick-and-mortar joint

You may not run a brick-and-mortar establishment but the point is made.

Not only do bugs destroy credibility and whitewash the professional aura you may have spent months and finances cultivating, but downtime also destroys business. Time is money, remember?

Both of these issues can be remedied with the help of a qualified eCommerce development agency partner, specifically one that is proficient with the management of your eCommerce platform. Nip problems in the “bug” and prevent them from sapping your business.

Make your goal 0% downtime and a seamless, bug-free shopping experience. That’s ours.

Implementing Complex Integration

Let’s conduct a short thought experiment. Let’s say you use a plugin like Bolt to help provide a unified, personalized checkout experience for your customers.

Let’s also say your website is built on BigCommerce.

The people that developed Bolt did so with the intention of creating the aforementioned unified, personalized checkout experience – across platforms.

The people that developed BigCommerce did so with the intention of creating a sensible eCommerce platform that streamlined the management of order history, inventory, and customer and admin accounts.

Try to mix them, and you could have trouble

True, BigCommerce has a relatively open API and some subscriptions allow for unlimited API calls, but that does not mean that anyone who knows how to perform a search on Google can execute an integration – even of a widely used plugin like Bolt.

That requires experience – the experience of Elite BigCommerce developers.

The moral: eCommerce platforms like BigCommerce rely on compatibility with a wide range of plugins to provide a high-level, semi-personalized experience for users. A huge advantage of working with a dedicated developer is managing and executing those integrations seamlessly and efficiently.

Creating Custom Apps and Tools to Support Critical Functionality

Sometimes, the precise functionality, or the experience, you want to offer your customers can’t simply be leased from another software development company in the form of a third-party plugin or license.

Sometimes what you need to offer on your eCommerce website is as unique as your brand itself.

A tool to personalize the shopping experience. A custom app to estimate or formulate quotes for services or goods.

 

Industry greats didn’t become great by mimicking or leasing, but by making their own way.

When you can’t buy the functionality you need because it doesn’t exist yet, there’s only one answer: you have to write the code yourself and implement it into your BigCommerce website.

Well, you don’t. Our team of BigCommerce developers does.

Enhance Customer Navigation

Some sources indicate upwards of 90% of customers place a high emphasis on website navigation, signifying that a website must be “easy to navigate.” Just what “easy” is will depend on your type of customer, but let’s just say that slow load speeds aren’t the only thing that can cause high bounce rates.

The thing about developing an intuitive navigational hierarchy is just that – it takes development. BigCommerce and other eCommerce platforms might have a variety of themes that are relatively easy to use, with drag-and-drop interfaces for the creation of basic menus, but what happens when you need to integrate search functionality, implement faceted search, create a lazy loading feature, or develop a mega menu with several nested subcategories to organize a product portfolio with thousands of entries?

It takes work, but that work is a lot less daunting for a dedicated BigCommerce developer than it is for the average eCommerce entrepreneur.

 

Support Your Digital Marketing Initiatives

There’s one more really huge advantage of working with a BigCommerce developer that no one talks about, especially if that BigCommerce developer offers digital marketing services. A developer can help support your digital marketing efforts, be they eCommerce SEO, PPC, email marketing, social media management, or some combination of all of them.

How users interact with your site, whether they bounce or eventually consume content or convert into paying customers, aren’t just signals of the success of your marketing efforts. They are big cues to Google and other search engines.

Ideally, your website will have high time on page figures, high conversion rates, and low bounce rate and exit statistics. The more pleasant the UX of your eCommerce website, the more likely your marketing efforts are to come to fruition with sales and conversions. It’s as simple as that.

An eCommerce SEO strategy might send droves of users to your website for highly competitive keywords, and an eCommerce PPC management campaign might generate a huge amount of paid traffic to your website. If none of it converts, what’s the point?

Get with our BigCommerce development team to start devising a strategy to unify your design and development work with your digital marketing initiatives.

Category Page Customizations

BigCommerce category pages are an important part of your website and overall user experience. But often times, these pages get overlooked. If category pages are not presented or written properly, your on-page optimization can suffer. Customizing the right category page layouts for your business can also be a daunting task. Luckily, FluidRank is here to help! Our BigCommerce developers know all the ins and outs of BigCommerce and work with both our designers and SEO experts to create custom category page layouts that enhance your site’s overall SEO to increase conversions.

Custom Product Page Layout

Without good BigCommerce product pages, customers are much more likely to bounce and visit competing websites. Product pages are important to conversions. They need to be well-written and well-designed to display your products in an appealing and informative way. If you have a lot of products in your BigCommerce store, this can feel like an endless task. With FluidRank, you can outsource this part of the job to experts who can bring quality product descriptions, add high-quality images and product reviews to boost your product pages.

Option Customization

Customers love having options, whether it is choosing their favorite color, a specific size or just adding custom features to a product. It’s important to give your customers options when working on your product pages within your BigCommerce store. Adding options adds variety to your products, which increases conversions. If you want to improve your BigCommerce store to include customization, contact FluidRank. Our BigCommerce development experts can help you create a customized web store that is also user-friendly and can increase your sales.

Wholesale Setup & Price Customization

If you offer wholesale options, BigCommerce gives you the options to create customer groups that require a login to access wholesale options and pricing. In offering wholesale options, you may have hundreds or thousands of customers to keep organized and that can take a lot of time. With FluidRank, shuffling between wholesale and retail options can be made easy so you can get back to focusing on what really matters to you: selling your products.

Open API Integration

BigCommerce offers an open API integration to custom develop hundreds of applications. BigCommerce offers high-performing API integrations including Login API, Catalog API, and Cart API. Each of these carefully organized, pre-built integrations gives you the option to seamlessly integrate multiple channels to connect to the systems and tools your web store needs for unparalleled customer experience. By connecting with FluidRank, you get a dedicated team that will provide you with all of the API integration solutions you may need and complete integrations in an easy and efficient manner, leaving you to focus more on managing your business.

3rd Party Plugins

In addition to the applications offered by BigCommerce, you can also customize your BigCommerce store with 3rd party plugins. At FluidRank, we have worked with hundreds of BigCommerce stores, know our way around the BigCommerce platform and can create a website that you and your customers will love and find easy to use.

eCommerce SEO FAQ

BigCommerce is the #1 eCommerce software solution platform that allows you to create an online store. BigCommerce is built to be accessible to small merchants while having the functionality to scale and support the largest enterprise customers at the same time.
You can make changes within a Bigcommerce template or theme, but since Bigcommerce is a hosted shopping cart platform, the theme is already installed. To have the theme look its best in your store, it may need some minor adjustments. Installing a template includes manually updating the exact settings you want and testing your store front’s functionality.
Customers do not have to leave the website to make a payment. This will improve your customer checkout conversions as well as increase your revenue.
Yes, BigCommerce’s payment gateway includes fraud protection solutions for all merchants. They also integrate with several solutions that provide extra protection against fraud.
All BigCommerce websites are mobile responsive out of the box. That means that your customers will have the best experience no matter what device they use to view your website.
BigCommerce management has improved by leaps and bounds these last few years. As they’ve invested in their platform, they have made sure the store owner’s experience has remained streamlined and intuitive while still giving you access to enterprise-level tools and customization options.
Our strategy includes producing onsite content, offsite content, and category or product page content. Offsite content is designed to build backlinks and authority with Google while onsite and category page content is designed to improve on-page SEO and provide value to your customers by directing them to relative content when they search for one of your keywords.
Clients start eCommerce SEO campaigns at different times. While it is advised to start an SEO campaign while your website is being created, it is never too early or too late to get started with SEO in an effort to boost your rankings and organic traffic.

Euphoria’s Most Stylish Characters and How to Get Their Looks

One of TV’s biggest breakout shows in 2019 was none other than HBO’s Euphoria. The incredibly popular series, which credits Drake as an executive producer, centers around a group of high school students as they navigate the world of addiction, love, and trauma in the digital age.

Aside from a stellar performance by the show’s lead, Zendaya, as well as breakout stars Hunter Schafer and Jacob Elordi, Euphoria’s fashion has also been creating a lot of buzz. Heidi Bivens, the show’s costume designer, nailed each character’s personal style in a way that had the internet losing its collective minds well after the season finale in August. From comfy androgyny to anime-inspired ensembles, here are some of Euphoria’s most fashion-forward characters and how you can infuse their looks into your own style.

Maddy Perez

Maddy Perez, portrayed perfectly by Alexa Demie, rocks some of Euphoria’s most iconic looks. Maddy is best known for her love of matching two-piece sets, a look we saw a lot of this season. From her casual everyday looks to the fabulous purple ensemble she wore to meet Nate’s parents, there’s no denying that Maddy knows how to pull off a two-piece set like no other. If you want to recreate Maddy’s look, you’re in luck- matching sets are super easy to throw on and are perfect for those mornings when you don’t have time to put together an entire outfit. Just be sure your outfit is school or work-appropriate – Maddy’s midriff-bearing getups might not fly with your boss or teacher!

Kat Hernandez

No one had a bigger style transformation this season than Kat Hernandez. The former girl-next-door archetype starts off shy initially but starts coming into her own as the season progresses, and that can be seen in her bold fashion choices. Kat’s style can best be described as a unique combination of goth and glam. She’s been known to love a bold lip, leather detailing, and cool sunglasses. To get Kat’s look, be prepared to get a little dark, as that’s the basis of her style. For a more wearable, everyday look, stick to one standout piece, like a leather skirt, and tone it down with a pair of chunky sneakers and a comfy hoodie.

Jules Vaughn

Some of the best looks we saw this season came from none other than Jules Vaughn, the resident new girl in town. Jules starts the season off with a bang, sporting styles that look like they’re straight out of an anime. Jules’s style can be described as ultra-girly, with tons of pink and glitter incorporated into most of her outfits. To recreate Jules’s style, look for things like tennis skirts, crop tops, and chunky boots. Jules is also known for her bold makeup looks, so try eyeliner in a fun pop of color or glitter highlighter to spice up a boring outfit.

Rue Bennett

Last but not least is Rue Bennett, Euphoria’s main protagonist. Rue’s style is the most casual of the group, as she spends the majority of the season in hoodies and Converse hightops. Rue’s look is both tomboy-ish and functional, perfect for going to school or riding her bike to Jules’s house. To get Rue’s look, check out boho style clothing stores and look for laidback pieces in comfortable fabrics. The most important part of recreating Rue’s style is making sure you can move in it, so don’t settle for stiff fabrics or weird cuts.

There’s no denying that the girls on Euphoria have great style, and the show does a great job of representing different characters that each viewer can relate to in some way.

Whether you’re looking for boho style clothing stores to recreate Rue’s outfits or you consider yourself more of a Maddy, Boho Pink has all of the styles you need to look fashion-forward from cute dresses to trendy pants. Check them out online at BohoPink.com for the latest styles and trends.

Why Your Business Needs An Interior Plant Service

Plants are a perfect way to add a touch of life to your workspace. Not only does the addition of plants make your space look better, but they also will help employees focus and assist in cleaning the air in your office. While the benefits of adding plants are clear, the issue of choosing which plants will survive in your office and staying on top of their care can be too much for many employers. Instead of forgoing the addition of plants entirely, and missing out on their benefits, hiring an interior plant service is a perfect way to get the benefits of a planted space without the hassle of maintaining both an office and a greenhouse.

Interior plant services are businesses that specialize in installing and maintaining planted spaces. Here at Plantscapes USA, we help both home and business owners in the Philadelphia area design and install the gorgeous planted spaces they need. We offer free consultations for potential clients who are interested in our services.

Adding plants to an indoor space takes careful consideration. Different interior plants will require different levels of sunlight, and our experts can help you find which plants will thrive in your space. Popular plants that often thrive indoors include:

  • Pothos – A resilient vining plant that loves water but can handle dry periods extremely well. They come in several varieties and cuttings will root easily in water
  • Philodendron – A range of gorgeous plants that enjoy bright indirect light. With varieties including vining plants and gorgeous ornamental species with broad leaves
  • Dracaena – African plants that grow a sturdy woody bamboo-like stem with long leaves packed in tight groupings, almost resembling corn leaves.

Understanding the Ocean Plastic Crisis

When most people hear about the ocean plastic crisis, they think about hot button topics like the great pacific garbage patch which has received a great deal of publicity over the last decade. Here at Company, we want the public to understand that the true nature of this pollution crisis is not just found in the distant center of our oceans; it reaches every shore across the globe. Everyday plastic is continually dumped into the ocean where it is free to circulate. In the roughly 70 years since widespread plastic production began, the exponential rate of production and low rate of recycling have led to millions of pounds of plastic entering our oceans every year.

Plastic itself was heralded as a miracle material around the dawn of the 20th century. By harnessing natural and synthetic polymers, flexible plastic materials began to become widespread in the 1950s. Because of its low cost, waterproof properties, and ease of manufacturing, this new material quickly found its way into countless products. Now, almost 70 years since mass production began, we are dealing with the realities of widespread plastic use.

One of the reasons plastics were so highly valued was their sturdiness. Plastics did not shatter like glass or rot like wood. Instead, they remained flexible and resilient. While these properties make plastics an amazing commercial material, they have also made plastics a nightmare to get rid of. Since widespread production began, due to a lack of data, no one knows exactly how much plastic has become waste. Estimates on the topic vary from 1 billion to over 5 billion tons of total plastic waste in the world with a large portion of that waste ending up in waterways and, ultimately, the ocean.

Humans have historically used waterways to dispose of waste since organized societies first emerged. The basic concept is simple, throw your waste into moving water and it is carried away never to be seen again. While this practice had minimal impact when simply being used to remove sewage and food byproducts, the industrial revolution began the process of dumping hazardous and toxic waste into waterways. As long as the waste was carried away, it ceased to exist in the eyes of polluters and this process has remained in place for nearly 200 years.

Flash forward to the modern day and we see that this long established practice is finally catching up to us. Plastics will not simply go away when we dump them in the sea. The ocean’s cooling effect and saline environment actually help prevent the rapid decomposition of plastics’ high mass polymer structure. When you add the fact that plastics tend to be buoyant, the result is thousands of pounds of dumped plastic following currents until they eventually wash up elsewhere.

Company was founded as a direct result of this ocean plastic crisis. While on a trip to Bali, our founders Alex and Andrew discovered beaches, which should have been gorgeous tropical oases, instead covered in piles of plastic waste. They watched as more and more waste built up on the shores with every break of the waves while local fishermen battled through the deluge just to reach open water. Horrified by the sheer magnitude of this seemingly unending tide of plastic, Alex and Andrew decided to create a business focused on removing plastic from our most valuable natural resource.

Company is dedicated to funding plastic cleanup efforts across the world. We are able to fund this work by selling our bracelets. Instead of relying solely on donations, we developed a system where every bracelet we sell helps to fund the removal of at least one pound of plastic waste during one of our clean up projects. This approach both helps us maintain funding for our clean up projects and promotes awareness for this important cause.

Using a lifestyle brand to fund our cleanup may seem unconventional, but it allows us to use our profits as we see fit in ways that would not be possible for a non profit. In order to maintain transparency, we verify our clean up results and how our funds are allocated with the Better Business Bureau. Over 98% of our profits go towards our clean up efforts and we want our customers to be absolutely certain that every bracelet purchase goes directly towards plastic clean up.

We make all of our bracelets from recycled materials. The bracelets are made with a combination of post consumer plastic waste and about 5% ocean plastic and glass. While we promise to remove one pound of plastic for every bracelet sold, our current numbers actually far exceed this promise. Our bracelets not only contribute directly to funding our clean up efforts, but they also help spread awareness about the Company mission.

We take the profit from these sales and use it to manage facilities and hire clean up crews and ships to remove plastic 7 days a week. We currently are operating out of Florida, Bali, Haiti, and Texas after only two years in operation. As we continue to grow, we look forward to spreading the Company cleanup efforts to new locations around the globe. We are also investing in new technologies that we hope will help prevent plastic from reaching the Ocean and make removal easier.

Our mission is not only to remove plastic from our oceans. We aim to raise awareness of what pollution is doing and work to stop the flow of plastic into our waterways. Since we were kids, we’ve been told to cut the plastic six-pack rings from our cans to avoid wildlife getting caught in them. This kind of advice is aimed at risk management. It assumes the plastic will end up in nature and aims to mitigate the damage it will cause. While these risk management measures are extremely important for wildlife, we have to start focusing on strategies that do not just manage risk, but address the causes.

Removing plastic from shorelines and waterways is itself a form of risk management aimed at avoiding the spread of plastic into the ocean’s food chain. The reality of the ocean plastic crisis goes far beyond the waste we see washing up on shores. Plastics degrade slowly and are waterproof, which are two properties that make them both a valuable commercial material and an environmental hazard. Without human intervention, it could take a plastic bottle nearly five centuries to degrade. Sadly for our ocean’s wildlife, decomposition is not the same as erosion. The plastic debris we see littering shorelines and floating in the surf are just the tip of the iceberg.

While plastics may not rapidly degrade, they can easily erode. Between the constant movement of the seas and being dashed against sandy shores, large plastics can be worn down into countless tiny pieces of plastic over the span of only a few years. These microplastic granules may be nearly impossible to see, but they can have a huge environmental impact.

As microplastics circulate, they are consumed by invertebrates and small fish. While this is obviously troubling, the true danger lies in an effect known as biomagnification. Many plastic compounds are persistent, meaning they will be stored in the body because they cannot be broken down. If small plankton consume tiny quantities of micro plastic, they will probably be able to survive, but the persistent plastic chemicals will remain in their bodies.

When small fish consume those plankton in large quantities, they end up with a larger amount of persistent plastic chemicals in their bodies. This magnification increases up the food chain until larger marine predators like whales, dolphins, and seals end up containing dangerous levels of plastic chemicals. As these affects continue to amplify, the ability for humans to consume seafood safely will also be in jeopardy.

While some plastic pollution begins in the form of microplastics, a majority of microplastics in our oceans are created from the erosion of large plastic waste. Removing this waste and keeping it out of our oceans is one of the best ways to slow the exponential expansion of the ocean plastic crisis. The task of removing microplastics from our ocean is literally like trying to remove a needle from a 100-mile high haystack covering the entire USA. This is why it is so crucial that we collect large plastic waste from the ocean before they are eroded to the point that we can no longer hope to remove them. With millions of tons of plastic entering our oceans every year, cleaning it all up is a huge job.

Obviously combatting the ocean plastic crisis is not a task that our team at Company can achieve alone. Global crises require global solutions and we are proud to partner and donate to other organizations who share our core mission. We also conduct ocean cleanup operations around the globe where teams of local volunteers remove plastic from their shorelines. These local operations contribute to our mission but, because they are not funded by bracelet sales, we do not include the results of these operations in our total cleanup numbers. The counter on our website only reflects the achievements of the teams we fund so customers can get a clear idea of how much plastic we have removed as a result of their purchases, not the kindness of strangers. In reality, our efforts have removed far more plastic than these metrics suggest.

In addition to our clean up efforts, we are also proud to support the efforts of other organizations dedicated to helping the oceans. We donate to several non-profits and we recently partnered with 1% for the Planet in order to ensure that at least 1% of all of our profits go directly to funding various environmental efforts around the world. These actions help extend the good we can do with our bracelet sales without needing to pour expenses into creating and staffing new home bases across the globe. While we can’t be everywhere, we want our reach to extend as far as possible.

We are also happy to support environmental groups that are dedicated to making sure that plastic is properly recycled before it can end up in our oceans. Globally less than 10% of plastics are recycled and the remaining 90% of global plastic products end up split between landfills and waterways. Finding new ways to recycle these products and new methods for producing biodegradable plastic is a crucial step to making our use of plastic sustainable.

While we are extremely grateful for everyone willing to fund our mission or come out and volunteer, we know that not everyone can buy a bracelet or reach a cleanup site. Just because you aren’t working directly with Company doesn’t mean you can’t be part of our mission. There are so many simple things every person can do to help protect our ocean. Whether you make the choice to avoid single-use plastic or you just make sure your plastic waste ends up in the recycling bin instead of the garbage, we salute you for making these small life choices.

It takes billions of grains of sand to create a beach and it will take billions of people making small but important choices to keep them clean. The ocean is truly our greatest natural resource and now is the time to stand up as a global community to protect it. Whether you want to support our cause directly by buying a bracelet and becoming a volunteer or you just want to learn more about the ocean plastic crisis and the steps everyone can do to help, visit our website for more information. We know that if everyone who cares about the ocean contributed to cleaning them, we will be able to continue down this road to recovery and ensure that our marine environments continue to thrive for millennia.

Use the Best Dry Rub for Ribs and See the Results

There are many different food items we think of when we think barbecue, but one of the toughest to do the right way is barbecued ribs. There is nothing like perfectly cooked pork ribs that are seasoned perfectly and served with the right sides and a tangy and sweet barbecue sauce on the side for added flavor. You can’t beat it.

Making ribs the right way starts with the preparation and ends with the right cooking process. It can take a few times of practice, but with time you can become a rib expert and make delicious ribs with ease. Today, we will help you get on the right track to making delicious ribs, from having the best dry rub for ribs to the perfect cooking process.

The flavor you get with your ribs begins when you choose the dry rub you will use for seasoning. With Casa M Spice Co, there are several different options you could choose that can increase the heat, focus on sweetness, even help you season based on the type of meat. You could choose the season-all formula called Chain Reaction and get a perfect balance of heat, sweetness and spice that creates a great flavor. But the best dry rub for ribs is choosing a rub that is designed specifically for the type of meat that you are preparing.

Consider Cattle Drive or Whole Hog for the best results when preparing ribs. Cattle Drive is a spice blend created specifically for beef, which can be great if you find beef ribs. Whole Hog is a rub designed for pork and pork ribs. Choosing a spice blend that was made to specifically complement the natural flavors for meats like beef or pork can make a huge difference in the results you get. When the spices work together with the meat and blend to become one, you get a delicious flavor that you won’t soon forget.

A common choice for people who want to prepare ribs is to choose baby back ribs because of the natural flavor they have and the way they can just fall right off the bone when they are perfectly prepared. It makes for a fun and enjoyable dining experience.

So how do you prepare your baby back ribs to be just like you would get at a traditional barbecue joint or smokehouse? Let’s go through the steps.

Start by preheating your grill to a high heat and put some light oil onto the grate. You want to have your dry rub ready in a shaker. With Casa M Spice Co, the best dry rub for ribs comes in a stainless steel shaker that you can use anywhere in the kitchen or right by the grill.

Each rack of ribs will have a membrane on the back. Trim this with a small knife and from each rib to make them ready to place on the grill. Just before you do, sprinkle the ribs with the best dry rub for ribs. For the best grilling, you want to place the ribs on a higher rank, placing foil on the lower rack to catch any of the drippings that may come off of the meat or to prevent a flare up from providing too much heat to the meat.

When the ribs have been placed on the grill, set to a low heat and close the lid and let sit for one hour uninterrupted. After an hour, lift the lid, brush barbecue sauce over the ribs and let sit for another five minutes. After this, you can remove the ribs from the grill and begin to prepare to serve. You can either serve with the whole rack still completely connected or you can cut between each bone to make individual ribs.

Now sit back and enjoy the delicious flavor of your ribs, prepared with the best dry rub for ribs. With Casa M Spice Co, it’s easy to get the best flavors for your barbecued meats. You can order an individual seasoning for your favorite type of meat or get a gift pack and have several different options at the ready for when you need them.
