Several years ago I made the switch from using paper and plastic bags to cloth bags. It’s one small step that I could make to help be more eco-friendly to the world I am leaving for my children. Yes, I need to throw them in the washing machine now and again when something spills versus throwing them out – but the that little added step is nothing compared to the thousands of pounds or waste that hits our landfills every single day.
According to Jen and Farzan, small business owners of The Lotus Trolley Bag, the average American uses 1,500 plastic bags per year. They currently have 25,000 Lotus Trolley Bags sold which is saving our landfills from over 30 million plastic bags each year. That right there is worthy of some praise if you ask me!
So what is The Lotus Trolley Bag?
The Lotus Trolley Bag is an ingenious set of bags that are compact, eco-friendly, detachable and multi-purpose bags that you can easily take with you anywhere to do your shopping. There is a special bag just for your wine and eggs (bread works well in this bag as well to keep it from getting smooshed), and then a separate cooler bag that is insulated to keep those frozen items nice and cold on a hot summer day while you run the rest of your errands as well. No need to make the grocery store last on your list with this insulated bag!
The easy to carry compact design of this set of bags is perfect. Even my son, Tre, said to me, “You find the coolest, time-saving stuff on the internet, Mom. This is really neat!” High praise from a 15-year-old lol!
Here are a few pictures I took of mine during my shopping trip to the store the other day. I like to utilize the self-checkout whenever possible at the store, and being able to sort my items while shopping and then bag them the same way was a complete breeze! When I arrived home, everything was in place and easy to unpack and put away.
