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.

  • Hot days call for cool drinks... loving this snap of our latest issue alongside @perkiiprobiotics 🌸 (there's actually a sneaky discount code on the back cover for Perkii along with a competition to win a @wanderlustausnz experience!) #peppermintmagazine #summeriscoming
  • Happy UN World Gratitude Day! The power of a daily gratitude habit can be incredible – it's been shown to boost energy and physical fitness; improve relationships; reduce stress, loneliness and anxiety; and give you an increased ability to overcome challenges. On the day when we're reminded to appreciate everything we have, we thought we'd give you something else to smile about – an awesome competition! To help you feel grateful 365 days of the year, we've got two decks of @topfivemovement’s award-winning positive thought-starter cards to give away. Whether your mind's racing, you're feeling flat or you're in need of a confidence boost, you can use these cards to disrupt unhelpful thoughts, train your brain and get the most out of life. To enter simply tag a friend who'd love to win, and if we randomly choose your entry you'll both receive a pack! Entries close at 4pm Monday 25 Sept, and you can tag as many friends as you like in separate comments – happy tagging and good luck! #worldgratitudeday #gratitude
  • If you're in Melbs you could do wayyyyy worse than heading along to Lilli Waters' photography exhibition at Junior Space Gallery in Fitzroy. With a classically still-life feel, her portraits each have a lurking modern element and are a comment on the impact of our wasteful culture on the natural world. Hop over to the website to read a quick chat with the woman herself, and head to see the exhib from tomorrow, 21 September. 👍📷👍📷
  • H2OMG 😱 We're continuing the Eco Fashion Challenge with this frankly startling fact – that's a whole lotta water for one plain old tee. Instead of buying into the cycle, we're planning to head home and rummage through our wardrobes – putting together new outfits and digging out long-lost faves. By mixing things up and experimenting with new combos we get a fresh new look without damaging the planet, its people and our wallets – a pretty ideal outcome, we'd say. #peppermintfashionchallenge
  • Here's most of the Peppermint team gazing ADORINGLY at the shoes we whipped up at yesterday's inaugural @the_shoe_camaraderie workshop. Run by our lovely office manager Lisa, the workshop was ALL OF THE FUN and, with Lisa's expert (and *very* patient) guidance, we each ended the day with our dream pair of handmade sandals. Head to @the_shoe_camaraderie to see the finished results - seriously, WE MADE THOSE SHOES. We still can't believe it ourselves. 😍 [Photo by our beloved @kelleysheenan, whose sandals were firmly behind the camera.]
  • R U OK? Like really, truly OK? Today is the national suicide prevention day that urges us all to ask the people in our lives that one little question - so they know they don't have to struggle with tough times alone. Non-profit founder and men’s mental health activist Lee Crockford wrote about the importance of educating people and having honest conversations about mental health for Peppermint Issue 31. Head to the link in our profile to read the full article and be inspired to check in with yourself and those around you. #RUOK #RUOKday #mentalhealthawareness

We all make for different reasons, whether it’s to find inner peace and calm our busy minds, reduce our impact on the environment, bring our communities together or create beautiful handmade, heartfelt objects.
