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.

  • When we took PepTalks on the road earlier this year, we were blown away by the gems we unearthed as part of the Peppermint Pitch – a one-minute slot where willing attendees took to the stage and shared their amazing ideas and blossoming initiatives with the PepTalks audience, who then voted for their favourite. Our Byron Bay winner, Amy Graham, took out the prize for her vision of a festival where local women of all ages come together to share and receive life skills - with a particular focus on supporting women who've experienced trauma. It's a heartwarming concept that we'd love to see come to fruition – head to the website to read more from Amy herself... [📷 @morgancroberts]

Did you know that it's currently Fairtrade Fortnight? Did you know that every bite of fair trade chocolate stands to end child labour, every cup of tea supports the equal rights of female tea farmers and every time you take a stand at the coffee stand, you are ensuring the farmers are paid fairly? When you choose Fairtrade Certified products you’re voting with your dollars for a fairer global marketplace free of child labour and the exploitation of vulnerable people.

  • A stunning splash of colour just appeared in the Peppermint office! These beautiful blooms are from @justcausebunch - made all the more awesome by the fact 100% of their profits go to community charities. The very best kind of flower power! 🌸🌺🌼
  • What if ethical fashion was the norm, not the exception? That's the question Clare Press is posing over on our website, where you'll find her wise words from our recent ethical fashion issue. For Clare and other fashion influencers including Tara Moss, The Unmaterial Girl's Leah Musch and Sustainability in Style's Katie Roberts, make sure you snap up a copy of Issue 34 before it's gone in a couple of weeks! 🏃🏻🏃🏻🏃🏻

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.
