In 2018, Mary Kay opened the Richard R. Rogers Manufacturing/R&D Center in Lewisville, Texas, which functions as a Zero Waste to Landfill facility and was awarded the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification.

Co-founded by L’Oréal and Quantis in 2018, SPICE will develop and publish business-oriented methodologies and data to support resilient decision making to improve the environmental performance of the entire packaging value chain. These developments will be the result of collective working sessions where members will share experience and knowledge for the benefit of the initiative and eventually to cosmetics packaging sustainability achievements on a grand scale.
