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.

Head over to the blog to read more of our interview with Tara from the latest issue, covering everything from the subversion of typically gendered roles to the importance of self-sufficiency. Sound the woman-crush alert - we're sold. 💕 [📷 Berndt Sellheim]
  • "The way we can support each other is to share the real stuff that's going on. Because if we create the space to be vulnerable and just say 'this is what's going on for me right now' ... other people say - 'I'm safe to share what's going on with me'. And then we can actually meet each other as human beings. Because until we're meeting each other as human beings, it's really hard to give a stuff about what is going on with other people - about what's going on in the world - until we can just be with the people that are actually there in front of us". @keminekvapil ~~~~~~~~~~~~
What an amazing way to end our PepTalks series - with empowering words from Kemi Nekvapil, along with the incredible Laura Poole from 1GiantMind and the inspiring John Elliot from Toms Shoes last night at Melbourne's gorgeous @allpressespresso studio. Thanks to our lovely partners on the night: @allpressespresso @yealands @remedykombucha @happyplacelb @pana_chocolate @weledaaustralia @theseeksociety @solidteknics ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We don't have enough words and gratitude to thank everyone who helped bring these events to life, including the speakers who were vulnerable and shared their stories and insights, the small army of volunteers, the photographers, the event venues, the caterers and the sponsors. A HUGE thanks also to our Katie Hoad, who was the master organiser behind PepTalks, and who is now off to organise an even bigger event - her new baby. And finally, thanks to all of you for coming along - we're so grateful for your support, and we hope you feel an increased sense of community, connection and are inspired to go forth and do good in the world, in your own little way. #pmpeptalks #peppermintmagazine

  • Monks with Britney Spears posters on their walls, handweaving co-operatives, the connection between anxiety and creativity, learning to be happy in your own skin and having a greater purpose... and Pana Chocolate... what a night!

  • We loved this quote by John Elliot from @tomsaustralia at our PepTalks event in Brisbane last September. John is speaking again at our PepTalks in Melbourne on Friday night, alongside the Raw Beauty Queen @keminekvapil and Laura Poole, co-founder of @1giantmind and Vedic meditation teacher. John talks about how going good in business (and life) shouldn't be exclusive - if you really want a better world - be transparent, be authentic and be inclusive. (Don't forget Sydney is tonight!) #pmpeptalks #peppermintmagazine #tomsshoes #ethicalbusiness #inspiration #giveback

There are invisible threads woven through everything we touch, wear and eat... Many hands have worked to bring us fashion - and often a low cost equals a high price for someone else.
