- CHIDO GOVERA, ISSUE 34

hang out with us on instagram

  • It's no secret we're fans of op shopping here at Peppermint HQ. Rummaging for vintage treasures is right up there with inhaling mid-afternoon chocolate and patting #peppermintpups in the line-up of things that firmly make the communal love-list. Because of that thrifty passion we're calling next week as one of our favourite of the year, as National Op Shop Week kicks off this Sunday for seven glorious days of happenings across the country. In preparation for this joyous event we spoke to @nevereverpayretail's Hannah Klose, who gave us a top secret look at her current op shop wish list. This girl has thrift tactics galore – head to the website to see how you can limber up in prep for the week that's a true celebration of secondhand. #nationalopshopweek2017
  • Our current Issue 34 sitting pretty! This edition features thoughts from a number of eco style influencers, including Lis from @nicounderwear (our lovely covergirl), @unmaterialgirl, @sustainabilityinstyle, @taramossauthor, @mrspress, @verenaerin, @stylewilderness, @shantides, @consciouschatter, @ecowarriorprincess, @sustainablychic, @walksewgood and more. With so much combined sartorial wisdom within its pages, it's a must-read for every ethical and sustainable fashion fan! Snap yours up over the next week before it disappears from shelves forever. #peppermintmagazine #sustainablefashion #ethicalfashion #ecofashion Beautiful shot by @rowena_goodall.
  • Get 15% off products that are good for people and/or the planet (like these snazzy Frank Green reusable coffee cups) from online store @merchants_of_change. They're just one of the lovely eco companies offering exclusive discounts for Peppermint readers - head to the 'reader offers' page on our website for more info (including special offers from @wanderingheart.aus, @solunadesigns_ , @spindriftcollections, @forflostore and @wild.wattle). Cheers!
  • On the very last page of Issue 34 of Peppermint we set our lovely community a challenge – to spend five weeks making the kind of small changes that make a big difference when it comes to the impact of our well-stocked wardrobes. We're kicking it all off today with this sobering fact – giving us just the incentive we need to gather our gals and guys, grab some snacks and wine and host a clothes swap! It can be as big or small as you like, and you could even consider suggesting a small 'entry charge' that can then be donated to the charity of your choice. One person's op-shop-bound is another person's love-forever-treasure – so round up your clothes and your friends and get swapping! 👚👕👖👗👠👢#peppermintfashionchallenge

  • 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]
