The ‘Coolamon’ shopping stroller or pram enables mothers with a baby, living within walking distance of shops, to do the family's food shopping without using the car.
Walking to the shops eliminates hassles such as
- Placing baby in and taking baby out of the car seat.
- Parking in the shopping centre carpark.
- Finding a trolley with a clean seat and returning trolley to storage area.
- Carrying baby and shopping from car to kitchen.
In addition, walking saves petrol and CO2 emissions, provides exercise and fresh air for both mother and baby.
Using the ‘Coolamon' reduces the need for plastic bags.
(On flat terrain it is feasible to walk at least 2km to and from the shops).
