Diapers are a messy but necessary part of having a baby. Families go through them so fast that they can pile up in the garbage. Eventually, they pile up in the landfill! But poof diapers are made to be fully biodegradable and compostable, so there is no harm to the environment!
poof will be at the 2017 Chicago Baby Show, on August 26 and 27, at Navy Pier, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families comes to Chicagoland. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the Chicago Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and beyond!
Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with founder Debra Lee, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the Chicago Baby Show.

Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
poof was founded by an award winning designer and visionary mother of five. Frustrated by the inadequate features of the diapers and guilty from the impact on our environment, she imagined there must be a better solution with the rapid advancements in technology. With her textile science background, she partnered with a textile-engineering firm, developing a proprietary new textile. Combining design, innovation and technology, She created a diaper that didn’t need to last 500+ years. Better for your baby. Better for our planet.
