EMERYVILLE, Calif., 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.
