Business Model


123zero aims to solve two major problems in hospitality and cosmetic industry: 1. Single-use packaging. Hospitality industry annually generates 200 million units of single-use plastic bottles. 2. Water waste. Shampoos contain 80-90% of water. This results in 4 million liters of waterwaste in manufacturing process every day. Shampoo marbles with 100% biodegradable packaging create no waste and decrease water usage by 90%. The final product is not only sustainable, but also convenient to use in a travel kit.

Target


Firstly, we aspire to move from the lab and set up a manual production place and produce the first batch of products. Secondly, we want to generate sales to get a proof of concept from first customers. Thirdly, our goal is to build a website and get media coverage to raise brand awareness. Finally, we aim to start the process of diversifying our product range.
