May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/
-- Amyris, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMRS), a leading synthetic
biotechnology company in Clean Health and Beauty markets through
its consumer brands and a top supplier of sustainable and natural
ingredients, today announced that Pipette™, its clean baby and
mothers skincare brand, will partner with non-profit organization,
Baby2Baby to donate 200,000 units of its award-winning hand
sanitizer to families living in poverty nationwide.
During the COVID-19 crisis, Baby2Baby distributed over 60
million essential items including diapers, formula, clothing,
cribs, soap, school supplies, hand sanitizer, masks, food, and more
to over one million children across the country impacted by the
pandemic. These COVID-19- care kits were essential for children and
families experiencing homelessness or who do not have the option of
social distancing in shelters.
"We're proud to partner with such an important organization to
continue our Healthy Hands initiative and give back to those in
need," said Daya Fields, President
of Pipette. "Our mission at Pipette is to provide clean and
effective solutions to keep families safe, happy, and healthy – and
protecting children from getting sick right now is of utmost
importance to that mission."
In March 2020, Pipette launched
its hand sanitizer made with 65 percent ethyl alcohol, exceeding
CDC-recommended levels to eliminate 99.99 percent of many harmful
germs and bacteria with clean, safe ingredients for all ages. As
part of the brand's "Healthy Hands" initiative, Pipette donated
tens of thousands of its new hand sanitizer to frontline healthcare
workers in some of the hardest hit U.S. cities including
New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
"We are so grateful to Pipette for its generous
commitment to provide hundreds of thousands of bottles of hand
sanitizer to keep the children we serve safe during the pandemic,"
said Kelly Sawyer Patricof
and Norah Weinstein, Co-CEOs of Baby2Baby. "The families
in our program don't have the ability to social distance because
they live in crowded housing or shelters, making this donation more
important than ever."
To support Pipette and Baby2Baby's partnership, Pipette
customers can round up any purchase made on Pipettebaby.com and
donate directly to Baby2Baby from May 1st
through May 15th.
