Lotus Sustainables: Convenient. Strong. Reusable. Grocery Bags

Trolley Bags

Lotus Sustainables: Convenient. Strong. Reusable. Grocery Bags
Click the Photo if you love the Bag!

If you are like me, you have a ton of re-usable bags. They take up far too much room, even in the organizer ya bought to keep them organized. This  is one of the many things I’m loving about the Lotus Sustainables! After we’re done with them, they can easily be folded up so that they don’t take up much space. Seriously, it’s easy. If I can do it (and still make them look decent) then you can too!

While they do fold up into a reasonably easy compact set, they expand to carry so many groceries! I carried in all 4 of them, crammed full, quite easily. They are made to tuck under your arm, so that you can carry them easily and they are stitched super well to hold more weight- up to 50 lbs each! Admittedly, the bags were too heavy to carry in all four at once but the extra trip would have happened regardless as I wouldn’t have been able to carry that much weight in 15 different bags anyway.

The Trolley Bags come in two color sets and sizes. I reviewed the Original Colors, as I’m a color fanatic but the Earth Tones are pretty as well! I was going to write that the only complaint I could possibly drag up is that they don’t fit the carts at Aldi, but then I realized that they also have wide club cart trolley bags! Guess that eliminates that! I’m still glad that I have the not so wide bags though, as they can be unfolded and stood up in the larger carts, whereas I’d imagine they wider bags would be way too large for normal carts.

Produce Bags

This is not my comic, if anyone knows where it came from, please let me know so that I can credit the talent!

Lotus Sustainables also makes the best produce bags! No more fighting with those stupid little plastic bags! The bags are BPA-free and food safe. They have a drawstring to close them and weigh almost nothing. Definitely not enough to add to the weight/cost of your product.

They can also be used to sieve nut milk or to rinse/strain produce! You could use them to wash delicate items, keep track of baby’s socks (don’t we all hate the lost sock game!), store things or pack toiletries! Love that they are so versatile! Also, having cleaned out metal strainers far too many times, I’m excited to try out using them for straining, as tossing them in the washer will be so much easier!

All In the Wash

Lotus Sustainables: Convenient. Strong. Reusable. Grocery Bags #Giveaway @Crafty_Zoo

Don’t worry about getting them a little dirty, the bottoms have mesh (except the insulated bag, of course) to help resist molding and the cooler bag is easy to wipe out. Every now and then, the other bags, including the product bags, can be tossed in the wash after you pull out the poles. After they’ve been washed, hang them to dry and re-place the poles. If you’d like to make your own detergent, check out this DIY Laundry Detergent! I use it daily!

Family Owned, Charitable Business

We all know I am both an environmental fanatic and a lover of small businesses, so this one is a double win! Not only will the bags keep you from needing a ton of plastic bags over time, Lotus Sustainables are also a family owned business who donates to charity with each purchase!

They put a little card in with the bags that really made me giggle, but I’m not going to spoil that for you. You’ll have to order your own to see the card!

      I do too! The produce bags are super versatile as well! We’re about to try straining food with them! The site says they can be used for them, so I’m super hoping they can replace the metal and plastic strainer!

    I would love to use the Lotus Trolley bags when i shop. They would help things stay organized and my son only eats gf food he has Celiacs disease . I can’t put bread near his food so this way you would keep them separated too.

      They would be perfect for you then! The only challenge I’m facing is unpacking the groceries fast enough to put them on the conveyor belt before they need the bags to replace them! There has to be a trick, I just haven’t found it yet, thinking maybe next time I’ll put the groceries in the cart, then stick them in the bags when I check out. You could put only your son’s in one of the bags, then they wouldn’t touch anything!

      I think we should all join that mission! If I could figure out how to completely eliminate trash in my house, I would totally do it! As is, we only have to have our trash picked up about once a month, even though it runs weekly. We recycle a LOT!

    Special pockets for eggs and wine and an insulated cooler bag make the Lotus Trolley Bag is the easiest, fastest, and greenest way to shop! Plus, removable rods for non-cart outings and more features!

    Wow! I had no idea the average family goes through 1,500 plastic bags per year. That’s pretty eye opening even if we are reusing them for other things in our home. They still end up at the landfill.

    Our local stores only carry plastic bags. Therefore, you have to use your own totes if the plastic bags are not desired.And if I have quite a lot of groceries, that’s many more totes needed.

    I really like that they pledge 1 % annual sales to companies that are working to improve our environment. The message needs to continue to get out about the damage that plastic bags alone are doing to our environment. These bags are an awesome invention and so much more convenient than plastic bags. Thank you for the super giveaway opportunity.

    I shop at Aldi’s and I always carry reusable totes in my car. The Lotus Trolley bag is awesome. It makes it quick and efficient to pack your groceries. I love that it has a special pouch specifically for eggs and an insulted cooler bag for your frozen/chilled items. I could definitely utilize this when grocery shopping. Thanks for the chance!
