Mary Kay has been an international leader in corporate and social responsibility. Last year, Mary Kay has partnered with The Nature Conservatory to protect Texas fisheries and the Gulf of Mexico. Now, Mary Kay has announced that they are expanding that partnership to impact waterways and native species all over the world.
“All life on Earth began in and depends on our oceans,” said Deborah Gibbins, Chief Operating Officer at Mary Kay.
Water is the most valuable resource on our planet, and it is essential that we protect it. Mary Kay has begun scaling their partnership with The Nature Conservatory last year and had focused on the waterways surrounding Mary Kay's hometown, Texas. But Mary Kay recognises that they are a global company, and knew that they had to support beyond the Gulf of Mexico.
"We’re thrilled to advance ecosystems and biodiversity conservation globally.”
The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organisation, working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. The Conservancy’s practices are rooted in science and are driven by pragmatic solutions to the most pressing conservation threats at the largest scale.
Mary Kay will support The Nature Conservancy's work through various programs in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, China, Solomon Islands, Colombia, Canada and Europe.
"Mary Kay has long worked to impact change that will sustain the earth for generations to come, so they are a natural—and welcome—partner for The Nature Conservancy. We’d already seen such impactful change in Texas, and we’re thrilled to see what their contributions will help us accomplish in communities across the world," added Lily Verdone, Director of Freshwater and Marine at The Nature Conservancy.
