About Us - Peppermint Magazine

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.

  • Happy New Year from us to you, our beautiful Peppermint community! While it's been a tough year in many ways, it's also been a fabulous year in many more. As much as the new year is always a time for reflection and goals, don't forget that every new day is an opportunity to make change and to start again. Today is all we have. Make today the day to start something new, to look at the world differently and to create a life full of purpose and meaning. Every little step counts - even if it's making the conscious choice to breathe in peace and breathe out kindness. Thank you for supporting us here at Peppermint (and endless gratitude to my amazing team - both past and present) - here's to 2017 (and today!) - together we can make a better world 👊🏼🌏💚{Kelley xxx}

Our strength lies in what we can give others, our beauty in our kindness and our power in our humanity.
