We tell the stories of people doing good in the world

Peppermint is an Australian quarterly print magazine focused on style, sustainability and substance. Covering slow food, ethical fashion, natural living, health and beauty, diversity, social entrepreneurs and more, it was created for the rapidly growing number of individuals who appreciate good design and creativity, but also care about social and environmental issues and things that matter.

With diverse, carefully curated content and beautiful photography – including fashion profiles and shoots, inspiring and informative editorials, and thought-provoking, behind-the-scenes features – Peppermint is a celebration of all that’s good in our changing world.

As a small, independent publication, we tell real stories with authenticity and passion. Each issue is designed to give hope and empower you to live a better, more meaningful and more authentic life. Peppermint is designed to be read, loved and cherished – laid out on a coffee table, lovingly stored on a bookshelf as part of a collection or passed onto a friend in need of inspiration. And in this fast-paced world, we feature slow, timeless content that endures – so you can take joy from each issue for many years to come.

Each issue of Peppermint is printed in Australia on PEFC-certified paper at an FSC-certified printer and is 100% carbon neutral. We’re committed to giving back by donating to charity through our Fashion Cents program in every issue, and have supported a number of local and international organisations including Save the Children, The Butterfly Foundation, SecondBite and BlinkNow.

We believe in good people. We believe that style and sustainability can go hand in hand. We believe that positive media is key to creating change.

  • 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]
  • Take us back! Aveda’s special breakfast at Wanderlust yesterday was the dreamiest way to start the day... ✨ #peppermintmagazine #mondaysarehard #aveda #wanderlust2017 #takemeback #findyourtruenorth #ayurveda

We all make for different reasons, whether it’s to find inner peace and calm our busy minds, reduce our impact on the environment, bring our communities together or create beautiful handmade, heartfelt objects.
