As the tide of bad publicity against the plastic bag grows, the scene is firmly set for the return of the shopping trolley.
Over the last few days the Spanish Rolser designer shopping trolleys, distributed in the UK by Novela, have enjoyed huge media attention, featuring in The Mail on Sunday’s You Magazine, with a picture of Julie Christie using one of the products, on GMTV, in the Daily Mail and on BBC Breakfast.
The surge of interest in the trolley is down not only to the fact that it is reusable, unlike the plastic bag, but that with the shopping on wheels the car can be left at home – further underlining the trolley’s green credentials.
Rolser claims to have the largest range of shopping trolleys in the country, all detailed on the website, rolser.co.uk. It has also launched a new range of reusable shopping bags. The company says it has received lots of interest from housewares stores around the country.
