Depending on where you live, your major stores may have already removed plastic bags from the checkout area. And with the movement picking up steam, what are other options? Consider using Lotus Trolley Bags to stop using single use plastic bags and learn just how easy it is to pack and unpack groceries. Not to mention everything stays organized. The bonus is being able to reduce needless plastic waste in our refuse centers.
The Lotus Trolley Bag system has four detachable and reusable bags. These bags help shoppers organize their items to reduce waste and to speed time when putting groceries away. The bags are designed to spread out along the top of the shopping cart sort of like an accordion.
Features include an insulated bag to keep frozen and cold products chilled. The other bags in the set have special compartments to help fragile items like eggs or glass bottles. Mesh lines the bottom of the bags for air flow and to keep the bag from retaining moisture. The entire set is machine washable.
Available in two sizes
Lotus Produce Bags
These produce bags are a game changer. The set includes 9 Reusable Produce Bags in 3 different sizes. The bags are BPA FREE and food safe. They really are a multi purpose bag that is durable and machine washable. Bag, store, and rinse your produce right in the bag when ready to use.
Environmentally conscious and responsible
Lotus Trolley Bags donates 1% of all their sales to 1% for the Planet, the Plastic Pollution Coalition or Surfrider Foundation. Each of these non-profit corporations have made both significant and positive impacts in their grassroots efforts to reduce or eliminate single use plastic bags.
As someone who has been using my own tote bags for years, it makes me happy to see that several large corporations are starting to take steps to reduce the amount of refuse that is being accumulated. Not using single use plastic bags is a huge step in the right direction.
As far as the Lotus Trolley Bags, they have been a game changer for me when shopping. While I know it isn’t available in all Kroger markets, we have the self scan as you bag option in this area of the country. So instead of tossing everything in the cart and then bagging after checking out, I can grab a hand held scanner and scan each item as I place it in the correct Lotus Trolley Bag. I bet this reduces my total time shopping and putting items away by at least half!
I keep a set of bags in my car at all times and use them anytime I head into a store. They are so each to use and pull apart quickly so they can be used individually as a shopping bag for small items, clothing, and any number of things. Once I started declining bags at the store, it really made an impact on me just how many bags are given out and trashed as soon as the item is put away.
As the holiday season approaches, consider using Lotus Trolley Bags to stop using single use plastic bags. They would also make a wonderful gift for anyone that is on your shopping list. We may not be able to make a big difference on our own, but if we all do our part, the combined effort does add up.
