Tomorrow is Earth Day, an annual worldwide event to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Now what if I told you that we can easily contribute to that day but doing nothing more than buying new nail polish? That sounds really weird and contradictory, right? But it is true thanks to Zoya's Nail Polish Exchange. Now what is this exchange about and how does it help Mother Earth?
In fact Zoya nail polishes are free of nasty chemicals like Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene or Champhor. These are not only bad for your health but also for the environment. Zoya's idea is to replace those chemical nail polishes we all have at home by non chemical nail polishes step by step. Therefore you now have one week to buy 6 - 24 new Zoya nail polishes with 50% off and return the same amount of old nail polishes so that they can be disposed of in an eco-friendly way.
And now the disadvantage: this only counts for the US as Zoya doesn't ship internationally... I think that's quite sad because I would have loved to join the initiative (I had already started choosing 6 shades in my mind). If however you live in the US I can warmly recommend you to check the Zoya Blog for further information. I mean you will never get a better excuse for buying a dozen new nail polishes at a time, will you?
So let's all hope Zoya will soon ship internationally but until then I will try to find another way to get my hands on their non chemical nail polishes! (Still lusting after their emerald shades...)
