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.

  • Peppermint Small Steps Challenge 2: Carry a reusable cup! 
You might love your daily brew, but unless you take your own cup to the coffee shop you're directly contributing to the 1 billion cups that go into landfill every year in Australia. Eek! The average disposable coffee cup is lined with plastic and comes with a plastic lid, which is not only harmful to your health, but takes a whopping 50 years to break down in landfill and can pose a threat to wildlife if it ends up in wilderness areas, beaches or the ocean. Plus with plenty of great reusable cup options out there, there's no excuse! Grab yourself one today and get in the habit of taking it with you whenever you need a caffeine hit. You'll get a warm glow from knowing you're not adding to the world's waste, and you could even be doing your wallet a favour too, as many establishments offer discounts for bringing your own cup. We'll drink to that!
