"Diapers are the third largest consumer item in landfills, and represent 30% of non-biodegradable waste," says Debra Lee, founder and CEO of Poof Diapers. "The only other items that outnumber diapers in landfills are newspapers and food and beverage containers, for which we have many good recycling options. The time is now to begin solving the dirty and dangerous problem of diaper waste."
Poof diapers are made with the company's own patented and engineer-optimized fabrics. Its breakthrough, proprietary diaper material is constructed with non-GMO corn, certified to worldwide biodegradable standards, and is compostable--the company has begun partnerships with recommended commercial composting facilities and can now provide a full circle option in many communities. In these facilities, in 14 short weeks, nonagricultural soil is created and used for commercial landscaping purposes.
The company, which began R&D in 2009, will begin a series of retail expansion announcements this week. Diapers are currently available through its website, www.poofdiapers.com.
