Walk your shop with VOOMcart

voomcartContributed by Erin Binnie.  It seemed really stupid to be running errands in the car when we live in one of the most walkable neighbourhoods in Toronto.   But anticipating an uncomfortable, awkward, sweaty walk home with heavy items we would often default to driving.

 
We were two moms looking for a solution – something like the ergonomic strollers we used to have. Something that would allow us to ditch the car and enjoy an outing in the hood and still get stuff done.
After concluding that a product combining the critical ergonomic features did not exist, we embarked upon a journey to create VOOMcart.

 
VOOMcart is pushed, it is easily loaded with two removable baskets, and it is collapsible. It is like a stroller only without the kids!

 
We are currently on our fourth design iteration but we need an influx of capital to bring VOOMcart to market.That’s why we’ve launched a campaign on Kickstarter’s crowdfunding platform. This allows us to get feedback on our design, and to raise funds from customers prior to the large scale investment required to manufacture.

 
The whole point of living in a highly walkable neighbourhood is being able to walk to get things done! And anyone who lives in downtown Toronto knows the stress and hassle of traffic and parking. VOOMcart will help you reduce your carbon footprint, keep you socially connected, fit and productive all at the same time! What’s not to love?
Please help us bring VOOMcartto a sidewalk near you!

 
Our Kickstarter campaign runs until September 17, 2019 — join the walking revolution and be car-free!
