*** PRESS RELEASE: Mary Kay Inc. talks about its ocean initiatives and collaboration with The Nature Conservancy on Earth Day 2022 – Russia |

Dallas, USA – APRIL 22 BUSINESS WIRE – This year marks the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day, first celebrated in 1970. Mary Kay Inc. is involved in celebrating the environment and the diverse partnerships around the world working to invest in our planet and achieve the 17 United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A key element in combating climate change and achieving SBAs depends on ocean activity. The ocean covers 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, is the largest biosphere on the planet and hosts over 80 percent of total life on Earth. It produces 50 percent of the oxygen we need, absorbs 25 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions, and traps 90 percent of the extra heat generated by those emissions *.

Nature Conservancy (TNC) has begun protecting our ocean with the support of Mary Kay, who believes that water is at the heart of her sustainability strategy: “This Earth Day, the oceans need us all.” said Jeffrey Parrish, Global Conservation CEO at The Nature Conservancy. “With the support of our corporate partners, TNC works around the world every day to maintain the reefs, coasts and water resources that make life on this planet and ours prosper. Together we make every day its Earth. “

Through collaborative partnerships, Mary Kay supports sustainable impact projects to preserve and protect our oceans:

– Global protection of the oceans to improve the health of the oceans for nature and humans.

– Protection of climate-resistant coral reefs, “super reefs”, in the Coral Triangle.

– Rehabilitation of Asia-Pacific shellfish reefs in Australia, Hong Kong and China.

Support for Women Pacific Leaders in Papua New Guinea (Mangrove, Women and Markets) and Solomon Islands (Community Health and Sustainability).

– Conservation and restoration of shores on the Gulf Coast (Protection of coastal wetlands on the Gulf Coast). and

Improving fisheries in Mexico (Improving fisheries and empowering communities).

Nature Conservancy will launch a new global collaboration to identify and protect coral reefs that can survive climate change, the Super Reefs, at the 2022 UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon, Portugal. Co-financed by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, the United Nations Conference on the Ocean will focus on addressing threats to health, ecology, the economy and ocean governance, and promoting much-needed scientific innovation to open up new chapter of global action for the ocean.

“On Earth Day and every day, Mary Kay celebrates the work we have done to invest in our planet and protect our oceans, a resource that supports the livelihoods of some 3 billion people worldwide. This is crucial for our land, our future and our society. Mary Kay is proud of her collaboration that helps make a sustainable and long-term impact on communities around the world. “This is a really important partnership for the planet,” said Deborah Gibbins, Mary Kay, COO.

“We know there is more work to be done and we know we can and will do more. Taking care of our land is important to Mary Kay and Earth Day is an opportunity for us to reaffirm our commitment to sustainable action,” he said. Gibbins added.
