The grocery giant is expanding its eco-friendly reusable options by showcasing a new concept called the Lotus Trolley Bag. You Can see My review HERE. Sorry the giveaway ended.
The innovative bag set spreads across the cart, and is redefining the way people shop for groceries. The four-bag set includes an insulated bag plus removable rods that allow consumers to easily sort and pack groceries in half the time. Since launching less than 2 years ago, 110 million single-use plastic bags have been eliminated.
Albertsons launched the reusable Lotus Produce Bag to replace the reliance of plastic in the produce section. Jennifer Duvall, co-founder of Lotus Trolley Bag, “Teaming with Albertsons is another positive step in the right direction in the fight against plastic pollution.”
The average American family uses 1,500 plastic bags per year for an average of 12 minutes. And by 2050, researchers found there will be more plastic by weight in the ocean than fish, one reason why Lotus Trolley Bag and Albertsons are encouraging change.
Farzan Dehmoubed, co-founder of Lotus Trolley Bag, “Produce bags are usually ignored, but more retailers are seeing the value to the environment and their bottom line by investing in reusable, washable, and eco-friendly produce bags.”
Currently, Lotus Trolley and Produce Bags are in more than 2,500 different stores in the U.S. including Albertsons, Vons, Acme, Jewel and Safeway. Lotus Trolley Bag also donates 1% of all sales to 1% For The Planet, Plastic Pollution Coalition and Surfrider Foundation.
