Think sustainability and style don’t belong in the same sentence?
Snowballing since the word go, Peppermint is the green fashion and lifestyle magazine, celebrating eco and ethical style with a fun, fresh, intelligent and positive spin. It was created for the rapidly-growing number of consumers who appreciate good design, fashion and creativity, but also care about social and environmental issues and where their clothing and consumer goods come from. Promoting individuality, DIY personal style, respect and ‘slow fashion’, Peppermint encourages readers to get off the trend mill by showcasing the best in eco and handmade design from Australia and the rest of the world. Fashion, accessories, natural beauty, art, film, design, social issues, lifestyle and culture: if it’s real thought and creativity you’re after, then you can bet Peppermint has got it covered. With inspiring, informative editorials and in-depth, behind-the-scenes features on the fashion industry and social issues, Peppermint is at once informative and inspirational, high-end and handcrafted, cutting-edge and old-fashioned… Because sometimes you have to look behind you to learn the way forward.
Walking the talk?
Absolutely. Peppermint is green to the core, printed on an FSC-certified printing press and 100% carbon neutral. We also take our ethics seriously. As an independent magazine we have total editorial integrity, only showcasing brands and labels we support and advertisers whose values are in line with our own. We’re proud to say the judges at the 2009 Bell Excellence in Publishing Awards recognised our hard work, giving Peppermint not only the award for Best Sustainability in Publishing, but also Best Design for a Consumer Magazine and Best Overall Design of the year! We have also picked up numerous other awards since, including a Gold Medal for Best Book/Mag and a Judges’ Special Commendation at the PICAs 2009, a Gold Medal at the PICAs 2010, and were shortlisted for the Lord Mayor’s Awards (Brisbane) in 2010. Proud as we are, for Peppermint this is just the beginning…
