This year, Nailaholics’ biggest annual event takes a stronger stand on environmental awareness.
Nailaholics, the country’s pioneer in bringing specialized nail salons and spa outlets, again conducts its annual National Pampering Day. The brand’s very own original creation is now on its 4th year, and this day of pampering is turned into an ecologically saving act tied up with self-care.
This October 17, 2019, from 10:00am to 1:00pm, all Nailaholics branches nationwide will be generously giving FREE SERVICES to its customers who would make a Php50 donation to its cause. Participants may avail of a FREE Manicure, Foot spa, or Foot massage with every donation, where all the proceeds will go to its partner beneficiary, Save Philippine Seas Organization.
As the world’s second largest archipelago, the Philippines has over 7,100 islands. Unsurprisingly, we Filipinos depend on the sea for livelihood, tourism, economy, and basically most of our lives. Thus, it is only essential for us to practice environmental conservation diligently – in many ways we can.
“This year we want to go beyond the usual discounted promotions we give to our clients. This year is all about encouraging our new and loyal customers alike, to engage in this more meaningful act of self-care – a self-care that saves. Contrary to the common perception, caring for oneself is not a selfish act. And we want our customers to feel that while they take care of their own bodies and prioritize their well-being, they can also simultaneously value our environment and summon changes in our lifestyle to protect the planet.” passionately claimed by Ms. Abby Borja, Head of Marketing of R2 Group of Exclusive Brands, Inc.
Indeed, employing kindness to oneself should translate into caring for our planet and vice versa. By choosing the right sustainable lifestyle changes, we can all empower each other to make a change. That is the advocacy Nailaholics wants to impart.
TO SEA IS TO BELIEVE
Water is the world’s biggest natural resource. Our oceans cover more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface and with that much, it is unmistakable how vital these marine environments are to the planet, and how much there still is to be explored.
Our seas hold not only that matchless natural beauty that make life more scenic and interesting, it also holds life. Yes, in the seas lie abundant life – millions of species that live and thrive in the depths of our oceans. It is in this enormous body that we acquire nourishment and natural resources that help us produce so many things we use in our everyday lives. Furthermore, it provides us that significant ecological balance so that even living things at land can prosper. It gives us not only a source of living but a more balanced quality of life as it can also provide leisure and wellness. Needless to say, it is a resource we evidently cannot live without and for that reason must be protected by all means possible.
Though large and seemingly endless, the sea and its resources are finite. Additionally, the life at sea needs to be respected and kept nourished. Have we done this? Or have we contributed to its reckless depletion?
LET’S MAKE WAVES
The advocasea does not end there. In aiming to create a holistic approach, Nailaholics will literally dive into action. A special raffle promo awaits the participants of the National Pampering Day wherein one lucky donor will win an all-expense paid trip to Siargao. Siargao Island is named the best island in the world and it practices respectable eco-tourism.
In this special promo, one lucky winner and a companion will not only appreciate the marine life and splendour of our own Philippine seas, but also be able to join a beach clean-up program led by S.E.A. Movement, and volunteer at the Siargao Art Recycling Studio. This is really the complete environmental awareness package that will immerse a willing participant.
SEAS THE DAY
Now it’s up to you, nailaholic! We all can take active part in this movement of caring for ourselves while caring for Mother Earth. We only have one planet, we only have one home. There is no planet B so love your own.
