  • If a whole week of ethical fashion's right up your alley (and your alley’s located in or around Perth) then we’ve got just the prize for you! Eco Fashion Week Australia takes place in Perth from 23 to 27 November, and we’ve got a double pass to a week’s worth of glamour up for grabs!
Visitors can take part in everything the event has to offer, from exclusive exhibitions, talks and hands-on workshops to runway shows that showcase the best in organic, upcycled and ethical fashion and textiles. To be in with a chance of having your name on the door at every fashion show (how fancy!), just send your details by 4pm Friday 17 Nov to yesplease@peppermintmag.com, with the subject line ‘Eco Fashion Week Australia’. Good luck! #ecofashionweekaustralia
  • New research has brought the cost of cheap clothing into even sharper focus – and it makes for pretty uncomfortable viewing. @oxfamaustralia's 'What She Makes' report examines the lives of three women sewing clothes for Target Australia, H&M and other international brands – and finds that on average four percent of the price of clothing sold in Australia goes back into the pockets of garment workers. Head to the website to read one woman's story, and learn what you can do today to shake up the garment industry.

  • Horrified by what's happening on Manus Island right now? The Prime Minister's office has opened a register for people who want to express their thoughts on current events. Simply call 02 6277 7700 and say "I'm concerned about what's happening on Manus Island" - the only details you need to give are your name and state, and every name will be included in a report that will go to the PM this afternoon. A small but hopefully powerful way of giving a voice to the voiceless. [📷 @amnestyqldnnsw]
