Working alongside the Northwest Florida Water Management District, the Arbor Day Foundation and Mary Kay partnered to plant 43,000 longleaf pine that will help protect critical water resources in Bay County Florida. Key project environmental and biodiversity benefits include:
- Restoring and preserving the primary source of drinking water for Bay County, Florida
- Replanting native tree species to return this area to its natural state
- Improving the habitat for area wildlife including deer, bobwhite quail, Sherman’s fox squirrels, and gopher tortoises
“Partners like Mary Kay help us to achieve the global scale necessary to drive meaningful impact through trees,” said Dan Lambe, Chief Executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “We’re grateful for their contributions to our mission and look forward to addressing pressing issues like deforestation and ecosystem restoration together well into the future.”
The Arbor Day Foundation estimates* that the impact over 40 years will result in:
- 57,387.3 metric tonnes of net carbon dioxide sequestered
- 165.6 tonnes of air pollution removed
- 2,455,300 gallons of rainfall intercepted
“Trees truly are the closest thing our planet has to superheroes,” said Deborah Gibbins, Chief Operating Officer of Mary Kay Inc. “They absorb carbon, improve water quality, and produce vital oxygen. Their powers are unmatched, which is why Mary Kay Inc. invests so heavily in reforestation projects around the globe.”
Earlier this year, Mary Kay also released a report detailing its long-standing partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation. Together, Mary Kay Inc. and the Arbor Day Foundation have planted over 1.2 million trees across the globe, making a measurable impact on vital forest ecosystems.
