One of the biggest investors in the baby wipes business is Darek Wojdyga. The company EcoWipes has grown significantly thanks to his ingenuity and entrepreneurship. EcoWipes is made of a biodegradable material that is proven to biodegrade within three months. The goal for this green company is to develop technologically advanced solutions that will one day completely eliminate plastic from hygienic and cosmetic products.
Over the years the line has garnered incredible success, but Wojdyga still strives for more with his international business. Previously, Wojdyga was ranked 86th in the top 100 richest Poles in 2012, according to Forbes. In Poland, he is admired for his work and his genuine desire to help the world become a better, more eco-friendly place. His business model and ethics reflect this.
Wojdyga is frequently on the road and in the air thanks to his around the clock international meetings. He frequently goes back and forth from his home in Poland to South Florida with his family for business. The largest producer of wipes in Europe now calls Fort Lauderdale home. And because of that, he reserves tables at local restaurants that provide a perfect setting for meetings with clients.
An example? Lobster Bar Sea Grille. Executive Chef Jeff Pfeiffer has created a luxe environment serving upscale seafood, which come from their ice and live displays, and steaks. The nautical theme, tiered archways, a U-shaped bar for mingling, and a lively atmosphere creates the right mood for business. The fully covered patio, with cushioned furniture and beautiful lighting is Wojdyga’s favorite spot at the restaurant to do business.
