Pew Institute teams with Chantecaille Cosmetics to protect global marine life
Date:3/11/2008

n Science and Chantecaille is a natural, since both institutions care deeply about environmental protection, said Dr. Pikitch. Although Sylvie grew up in France and I grew up in the United States, both of us started snorkeling when we were kids and our hearts have never left the ocean. Our passion for marine life and our concern over the threats to their environment have impacted the course of both of our lives and Im thrilled to be working together toward change.

Through both financial support and a commitment to raising visibility for ocean conservation, the Chantecailles have been incredibly valued partners for us and we are grateful for their contribution," Dr. Pikitch added.

The Pew Institute joined forces with Chantecaille in 2007 when the cosmetics firm created an exquisite, faux-coral-adorned Coral compact by acclaimed designer Jay Strongwater. Chantecaille donated five percent of the proceeds of this limited-edition compact to the Pew Institutes Reefs of Hope project, which seeks to understand whether temperature-sensitive corals will adapt to survive climate change. Chantecailles newly released Protected Paradise Face and Eyes makeup compacts will support the Pew Fellows in Marine Conservation, who work on ocean conservation in 29 countries around the globe. The 2008 Pew Marine Fellows are pursuing projects that are urgently needed to improve coral reef health, sustain fisheries, and enhance the effectiveness of marine protected areas, and are working in the United States, France, China, Australia and Canada.
