Eco Lips founder and Cedar Rapids resident Steve Shriver teamed up with Dr. Ryan Sundermann and Cedar Ridge Distillery, to distribute free hand sanitizer to people in Eastern Iowa.

Using a simple recipe, they made 1000, 4 ounce bottles to distribute via drive-thru pickup at New Bo City Market today, Wednesday, March 18th. They will continue to provide sanitizer for as long as there is a shortage.

The drive-thru will begin at 10 a.m. and go until the bottles are gone. Special thanks to these folks who are giving up their time, money, resources and facilities to help people right here in Eastern Iowa.

You can also stop out to Cedar Ridge to pick up bottles of hand sanitizer.

I talked with Shriver earlier today and asked him why he decided to do this. He told me, "I saw the need and pulled together resources to pull this off. It just made sense."

From all of us here in Eastern Iowa, we thank you.... And we WILL get though this.
