Celebrating National Arbor Day in Pink Doing Green Style

In celebration of National Arbor Day, the City of Dallas and Mary Kay Inc. rededicated the Mary Kay Ash Grove in Pioneer Park outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas. This outdoor green space is part of Mary Kay’s Pink Doing GreenSM initiative to plant 1 million trees in the U.S. through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation and guidance from the U.S. Forest Service.

The Mary Kay Ash Grove is home to more than 50 trees each planted in honor of company founder Mary Kay Ash who started the now global beauty company more than 50 years ago.

Joining in the celebration were representatives from Mary Kay’s Pink Doing Green Team, staff from the City of Dallas and representatives from the Texas Trees Foundation.

Today’s blog post is from Rebecca Gibson, a manager on Mary Kay’s corporate communications team, who never underestimates the value of a Swiss Army knife, a tape gun and sand bags when planning outdoor events. Follow Rebecca on Twitter @beckgibson.
