  • Brisbanites! We’d love you to come join us on Weds 10th October for a very special screening of Food Fighter –  the movie that follows OzHarvest founder Ronni Kahn's crusade against the global food waste scandal, taking in the United Nations in Bangkok, rubbing shoulders with British royalty (and Jamie Oliver), and holding government and big business to account here in Aus. It’s a movie that’s won awards left, right and centre - grab your tickets from the link in our bio! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃‍♂️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃‍♂️
  • We’re sad to see one of our fave brands -  @thejeanbag - closing their doors. Jeanbag created gorgeous bean bag covers and homewares from recycled denim jeans. “We work with great charity organisations with recycling operations like The Endeavour Foundation and the RSPCA to source our recycled denim jeans. We buy their denim jeans, which helps them out... They sell us jeans with marks and holes, which they can’t sell, but we can use because we cut those parts out and create something wonderful from what’s left.” They still have some lovely cushions and aprons at half price if you’re quick. We 💙 you @thejeanbag. #notsponsored #genuinelove #recycledhome #sustainablehome #peppermintmagazine
  • Love this shot of our tenth birthday issue, taken by @commesew_commeca - don’t forget, each and every issue of Peppermint has an awesome free sewing pattern by @inthefolds, brought to you by the lovely folk at @wearethefabricstore! Don’t forget to tag us when you’re done - we love seeing what you clever people create! 💚
  • Happy Tuesday! Over on the website we’re continuing our partnership with our friends at Fremantle's Lighthouse Baking, which sees us publishing recipes that fit with the six seasons – Birak, Bunuru, Djeran, Makuru, Djilba and Kambarang – recognised by the South West’s Nyoongar people. Each season reflects the changes in the natural world that come at that time of year, and second in our series is Djilba – the ‘grassy season’ or season of conception – which hits in August and September. This is a transitional time, with cold, fresh days combining with warmer, rainy and windy days. Flowers start to explode across the horizon at this time of year, and traditionally the main food sources include land-based grazing animals such as the Yongar (kangaroo), the Waitj (emu) and the Koomal (possum). With kangaroo meat forming a staple, sustainable part of the Indigenous diet, head to the website to find a recipe that reflects that –  kangaroo burgers in a simple, DIY homemade bun – enjoy!

  • Words for Monday (or life) via eco pet bedding company @indiebohopets
・・・
🔹 These wise words from @peppermintmagazine certainly strike a chord with us. ✔️ Dream Big Work Hard Never Give Up - ✔️ Do what you can with what you have - ✔️ Swap don’t shop - ✔️ Nurture your neighbourhood - ✔️ Waste not want not - ✔️ Embrace equality - ✔️ Local is lovely
  • “We always only use organic milks, eggs, and meat, and by following strict wholefoods principles we ensure that all the animal products we use have been pasture-raised – helping to develop the land and ensure the food is nutrient dense. Overall I think it’s madness not to think sustainably! We’re at a pivotal moment in human history and we all either need to face the reality of the situation we’ve created. In the cafe we only use bio containers for our takeaway food, we encourage people to buy reusable cups and we have a cup bank so that customers can borrow a mug rather than use a disposable. We also run workshops to help build community knowledge around sustainability – we held a composting workshop and we co-hosted a workshop with Plastic Free Mermaid on how to go plastic-free.”
