If you’re worried about the spread of germs at grocery stores, you’re not alone. While you can opt for grocery delivery services or at-home meal kits to make your visits less frequent, there are times when an in-person trip is essential. To make those trips as germ-free as possible, there are steps you can follow such as wiping down your cart handle and avoiding free samples, but if keeping your groceries away from germs inside your cart is a concern, we found a solution in Lotus Trolley bags.

Not only do these bag sets keep your food from touching the inside of the cart, but they also keep your groceries organized along the way. The bags are suspended on rods that fit over standard-sized grocery carts, so you can pick food off the shelves and place them directly into the bags. One large bag is insulated, promising to keep food cold or hot for up to four hours. Plus, there are specialty pockets for products including wine and eggs to keep fragile items from breaking or getting squished.

Lotus Trolley bags are also great for making the move to a more sustainable living. Once you’ve finished checking out, simply remove the rods and pick the bags up by the handles to store in your car — no single-use bags required. The company claims the fabric is mold-resistant and strong enough to hold 50 pounds per bag. But, to make sure they’re germ-free for every new use, you can clean them in a washing machine in between trips to the store.

Whether you’re looking for a cleaner way to shop or want to be more sustainable in your daily life, these are a solid solution. The tote bags can be used for anything from a day at the beach or camping, meaning you’ll have the perfect cooler, grocery-bag or tote ready at all times.
