Streamline Bagging with Lotus Trolley Bag - Review

As Christmas is around the corner, shoppers require the ultimate tools to survive holiday shopping, from groceries to toys. Reusable Lotus Trolley Bag and Lotus Produce Bags streamline bagging and can carry all your groceries, while providing versatility for consumers.

The average American family uses approximately 1,500 wasteful plastic bags in the U.S. each year.  I'm a part of the guilty party.  I'm good about recycling cardboard and paper, but not so good at finding a way to make a dent with plastic bags.  That is, until I found out about the Lotus Trolley Bag.  

Created by a husband and wife duo in California (where plastic bags are now banned), the Lotus Trolley Bag is an environmentally friendly shopping bag system.  These bags save steps—time and energy - all the while eliminating millions of wasteful, harmful plastic bags from our environment.  

I've received a ton of merchandise on my blog to review throughout the years, with some of them being at the top of the list as highly recommended.  The Lotus Trolley Bag has made it to the top of the list, and I definitely recommend it.  Seriously, go buy one for yourself and tons as gifts for others.

The Lotus Trolley Bag is a set of four bags that can be rolled into one carrying case.  Each bag can hold up to 50 pounds and is made with high quality double stitching.  Each bag has velcro  and covered poles on both sides.   

You can take the Lotus Trolley Bag with you when grocery shopping to eliminate the use for plastic bags.  When rolled up, it is lightweight and easy to carry.  A velcro closure at the handle allows you to hang it at the front of your shopping cart until you're ready to bag groceries, or you can go ahead and spread the bags out onto the shopping cart and allow them to hang from the rods.  The bags fit most grocery outlet shopping carts.  When you are finished shopping and ready to put the bags in your cart, just separate each one from the other's velcro and set them in your vehicle.

The light blue bag is insulated, providing 2 to 4 hours of keeping your food cold.  Another bag has a mesh bottom to aerate foods.  One of the bags even has inside pockets to hold wine and eggs.  Although I didn't take a picture of these bags on a shopping cart or with food in them, I can personally say that they are durable and hold lots of grocery items.  I love how well this bagging system works and that I don't  have to run immediately home with cold foods because one of the bags is insulated.

The poles on each bag are removable, and you have the option to take just one bag to the store with you if you want.  There's times when I need to take cold drinks to an event and I can use the insulated bag for just that purpose.  There's also times when I might want to just grab a few items from the store or want to take some food over to a friend's house.  I have the option to do that with these bags. 

Although I haven't tried it yet, the company advises three of the bags are machine washable.  The insulated bag can be wiped down with a cloth.

Love, love, love the Lotus Trolley Bag!
