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.

  • "Media frustration was one motivator for Embrace, but in my heart, what drove me more than anything was the desire to tell the untold stories of women who had been through such heartbreaking circumstances and also the inspiring stories of women who had overcome great adversity. I wanted to honour these women and the brilliant resilience they have used to love and embrace their bodies in the most extreme of circumstances. The global epidemic of body dissatisfaction is a problem for humanity, but I believe that it’s women who will lead the charge in creating positive global change.” We spoke to inspirational author, public speaker and filmmaker Taryn Brumfitt of @bodyimagemovement for a special body positivity feature in our current Summer Issue 32. Read more from Taryn (and five other amazing body image leaders) by grabbing a copy from your local newsagent! But be quick – it’s only on shelves for one more week. (Link in profile).

Now, more than ever before, we need to reach out and help those who don't enjoy the same rights, privileges and luxuries we do, and make a stand for this old blue planet we all call home.
