Keep Your Shopping Cart Organized with the Lotus Trolley Bag -- This Makes for a Great Gift Idea for Everyone on Your Holiday Shopping List! (Review) #plasticfree

Back in August, the state of CT started to ban plastic bags.  If you happened to go shopping and didn't have a reusable bag or tote to carry out your goods, you were charged 10 centers per bag used.  You still had the option to go with brown paper bags, but those too, would be phasing out in September.  While we were all provided advance notice of these changes in the summer, when stores posted signs about it, and news pieces ran on television, but it really didn't hit people until they went to the stores in August and found themselves being charged per bag.  I found myself a few times running into a store forgetting my bags, and trying to juggle milk and all my other groceries out to the car.  Just the idea of having to pay for bags made you want to show off your skills of juggling, to get your purchased goods to the car.  But, that became old real quick, and many CT residents found themselves paying the 10 cents per bag.  Yes, it was an inconvenience and would add up with each store visit, but we have all been used to walking out of a store with our purchases in a plastic bag.  The real shock came, though, when stores did away totally with the plastic bag buying option in October.  Yes, you could still buy paper bags for 5 cents each, but it is harder to carry out all those paper bags.  So, CT residents had to buy reusable totes if they hadn't already, to make shopping and carrying out their goods so much easier.  In the long run, eliminating plastic bags is a must for our environment, but change is hard for all of us, especially when you are so accustomed to things, and then have to make changes.

To make shopping easier, I ended up bringing my Lotus Trolley Bag into stores.  It was easy to store in my trunk, and set up in my shopping cart was a breeze.  I used to use my old Lotus Trolley Bag that I received a few years earlier, to do big box shopping at BJ's and Sams Club stores, as you don't get bags there either.  And, I hated to bring home all those cardboard boxes, just to have to break down and throw out.

So, what is the Lotus Trolley Bag, and why has it made shopping especially in CT where they did away with plastic bags, so much easier?  Here is more about the Lotus Trolley Bag, now available in new Earth Tones...

"Our patented Lotus Trolley Bag features egg and wine pockets, an insulated cooler bag, mesh bottoms to prevent mold after spills and a faster, easier and more organized method of bagging groceries. Our four-bag system is versatile for other uses and rolls up to the size of a yoga mat, while our multi-purpose produce bags are great for storing fruits, veggies and more." 

As the holidays approach, the Lotus Trolley Bag and Lotus Produce Bags are the perfect gift for every person on your holiday shopping list. This is one of those gifts that offers while also being good for the environment. We have all known for a long time that we need to do away with plastic -- plastic bags, plastic straws, etc. to cut down on waste and protect our environment for future generations, but when a state like CT steps up and bans plastic bags, it is an awakening to residents and we have to adjust with the changes by buying and carrying our own reusable totes, or get the Lotus Trolley Bag. I for one prefer the Lotus Trolley Bag over reusable totes, as the totes are bulky and can take up a lot of room in your trunk. With the Lotus Trolley Bag, it folds up nicely and can be stored in the back of the trunk, without making the trunk look like a mess.

And, with the addition of the Lotus Produce Bags, I feel like I am getting a jump start on getting acclimated to using these bags, instead of the plastic bags offered in the produce section at the market. I know that eventually stores will be doing away with these bags too, and shoppers will need a new way to package up their fruit and produce. I will not be stressing about this as I am already used to and love using my Lotus Produce Bags, along with the Lotus Trolley Bag, which fits snugly in my shopping cart, and is easy to transport from cart to trunk.

I could go on and on about how much I love the Lotus Trolley Bag and the Lotus Produce Bags, but with my rave review above and the 800+ five start reviews on Amazon for the Lotus Trolley Bag, you can see that this is a best-selling product that is a must have for every family in America. And, it would make for a great gift idea, for everyone on your shopping list. Yes, they would never except to get a Lotus Trolley Bag for the holidays...but, when they start to use it shopping, they will wonder how they ever did without it.

And, now with the neutral Earth Tone colored bags, my husband loves using the Lotus Trolley Bag when he helps with the food shopping. He says he really enjoys shopping now, thanks to the Lotus Trolley Bag, and loves explaining what it is when people stop and ask him what he has in his cart. Who knew he would be found first in a market food shopping, and second, be a spokesperson raving about his Lotus Trolley Bag?! :-) Once you try out the Lotus Trolley Bag for yourself, you will find yourself wanting to show it off to family, friends and even strangers in the market.
