Trolley Bags were invented by Irish entrepreneur, Paul Doyle, as a result of the plastic bag ban in Ireland. Trolley Bags went viral when they came to Australia in 2015 and are now in high demand following the plastic bag ban.
Trolley Bags are a system of four sturdy, reusable shopping bags that can be rolled together to be easily carried to the supermarket and hung on the back of your trolley while shopping. At the register, once you’ve unpacked your groceries, the bags can then be spread across the trolley in one step. They stand up-right on their own, allowing two hands free while packing the bags.
Each bag is a different colour and size, allowing groceries to be packed according to weight or type. Heavier groceries can be packed in the smaller bags at the front of the trolley, and lighter items in the larger bags at the back. This makes it easier to sort and put away groceries at home. The bags are attached to each other with Velcro and can be quickly separated to carry them out of the trolley.
When shopping with bub in the trolley, you can still use the bags! Simply spread the bags from behind the baby seat. This will just mean having the bags a little more compact, or to spread fully, remove one of the bags.
Trolley Bags are available from $39.95 for a set of four bags and come in a variety of sizes and colours www.packingsorted.com.au.
