Thomas Arnaudo, EDHEC Master in Management 2013

Some of us do our best thinking in the bathroom. Certainly, it was a source of inspiration for 900.care. It’s a startup that seems so right, and so right for the times, it deserves to succeed. As founder Thomas Arnaudo explains, “we asked, why does the bathroom trash can fill up with so many plastic bottles?” The solution was to rethink personal care products we use everyday. So toothpaste is now a tiny pellet to pop in your mouth when you brush. Deodorant is a refillable stick system. Shower gel is a concentrated ball you reconstitute with tap water in a reusable bottle. Cutting down on plastic waste is only one of the victories. Producing effective, natural care products that aren’t bulked up with water means shrinking the carbon footprint linked to transportation by 90%. The products themselves are also formulated to be as kind to the planet as they are to humans. No parabens, silicon, sulfate, triclosan, titanium dioxide, or aluminum salts. Thanks to EDHEC, Thomas and his partners got into Station F where likeminded souls have helped the idea fly. The EDHEC network has also led to investors and partners. One to watch.
