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 you love @mrspress as much as us (and hey, who doesn't?!) then you'll LOVE her take on diversity in fashion that we just published exclusively over on our website. And if that's just not enough Clare for your day, may we suggest you catch up on every single episode of her Wardrobe Crisis podcast right now – yep, abandon your day job and settle in for some outstanding listening on all things ethical fashion. With season two well underway, that's a whole lot of inspirational awesomeness for your ears. Enjoy! [📷 of the excellent @2sydneystylists - Edgar Mzumara]

Last night, I attended my first speaking gig since Bennett’s birth. I care deeply about all my speaking opportunities, but this one was for my favourite magazine @peppermintmagazine, and because I love the Peppermint Team and Peppermint readers are one hundred and fifty percent *my people*, the stakes felt HIGH.
::
I mean, I was speaking alongside the likes of @timsilverwood of @take3forthesea and Clare Press @mrspress, hosted by Leah @unmaterialgirl who has an effervescence that I want to bottle.
::
Yep, no reason to be nervous at all.
::
It’s fair to say that I was petrified.
::
And it’s fair to say that I didn’t want to get on a stage in front of 200 shining souls with sleep-deprived eyes and pregnancy-rolly-polly-ness from the neck down.
::
But I did get on that stage.
::
And you know how a collective of like-minded people can create an almost other-worldly vibe? That’s the space I was welcomed into. The kind of space where messages are more important than make up and vulnerability is a precious resource.
::
To all of you who listened last night: Thank you for your time and the soft place to land as I find my feet and voice again.
Thank you for coming with me into a story and back out the other side.
Thank you for your willingness and appetite for conversations of substance.
Thank you for getting it.
And thank you for approaching me afterwards to make sure I knew you got it.
::
These are the experiences that nourish me. You and me and connecting beyond screens with hands that touch and faces that recognise kindred hearts.
::
Thank you for seeing me, @kelleysheenan @becjamiesondwyer, Roxane @alexandriamain, @helendewar_ @zoeleebeingme -Peppermint Magazine is clearly as brilliant as it is because it’s birthed from each of you.

  • WORLD OCEANS DAY // Protecting our beautiful oceans is critical. They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe. Scientists estimate up to 12 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans every year - that’s a rubbish truck full every minute. Plastic pollution costs the lives of one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals annually. The World Economic Forum estimates that by 2050, plastic in the ocean will match the weight of fish. One of the biggest offenders is plastic bottles - we’re currently using one million plastic bottles worldwide per minute! Up to 91% of all plastic is not recycled and it can take 100s of years to biodegrade (mostly just breaking into smaller pieces in the oceans where marine animals ingest it or mistake it for food, then we eat those fish). How many years do plastic items take to biodegrade?
- Plastic bag: 20
- Straw: 200
- Nappy: 450
- Plastic bottle: 450
- Six-pack beer holder: 450
- Fishing line: 600

Say no to single use wherever possible. Pick up rubbish from the beach. Carry reusable options with you. Avoid micro plastics. Protect our oceans. #worldoceansday #saveouroceans (📷 @grumpyturtledesign - currently featured in a story about straws in our latest issue)

Research is showing that many ancient practices are the perfect accompaniment – and antidote – to modern life.
