  • Hey Melbourne – hands up if you'd like to come along to our next PepTalks! Supported by our good friends at @bankaust, we're bringing this much-loved event to Abbotsford Convent on Thursday 27th June, where we'll be informed, inspired and uplifted by speakers from the pages of Peppermint and beyond.
🌿
We're excited to hear from environmental campaigner and non-profit founder Jimmy Stanton-Cooke AKA Jimmy Halfcut – a man on a mission to save the world with his beard; director, photographer and videographer Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore, who's been working to share the stories of women in the music industry; and Roz Campbell, who created social enterprise sanitary protection brand Tsuno and is helping to empower women and girls around the world. The always hilarious Stacey Roberts, aka Veggie Mama – vegetarian food blogger and royal enthusiast – will be our MC for the evening, plus there'll be goodie bags (including a book for everyone from @murdochbooks), sweet treats, wine from @yealands and more!
🌿
Come along, connect with likeminded folks and go home feeling refreshed and more positive about the world. Tickets are limited, so head on over to the link in our bio to grab yours now. Let’s hear it for evenings with meaning!

  • "The renovating process took around two months – Harriet and Fraser were both working at the time, but living on site helped maintain the momentum. Once the house was complete, the interior decoration happened organically, with most of the items found secondhand and the pair employing a minimalist approach: “The only thing that was bought new for the house was the bean bags,” says Harriet. “The beauty of a small house, aside from less to clean, is also having fewer belongings. With ornaments and objects, each almost has to have a second purpose or it has to go. For example, an old trunk of my grandfather’s doubles as storage and the stools around the kitchen table are useful as coffee tables. The few objects we do keep have been collected by us over the years. Each holds sentimental value and I think that is what makes a house a home.” "⠀

Creative couple Harriet Birrell and Fraser West - from @natural_harry - have built a lot of things together – including their delightful tiny house made from reclaimed materials. Read more in Issue 41 with lovely photos from @marniehawson - only onsale for another week!⠀

  • "Zero waste is having a moment right now, and we can all agree that is a Very Good Thing indeed. With our oceans overwhelmed with plastic, a national recycling crisis in progress and turtles with straws stuck up their noses, this movement to reduce our waste couldn’t have come at a better time. Well, perhaps thirty years ago – but who’s counting? Nowadays, everyone seems to be toting their reusable bags, sipping on stainless steel straws and perfecting Instagram snaps of their reusable coffee cups. The groundswell is heartening, but the war on waste is far from over..."⠀

  • "This is for you, the ones who are quietly courageous in a culture that tells you to go big or go home. I see you, and I want to remind you that your brave counts, even when it’s in secret, and even when no one is there to witness it.⠀
Please don’t think that your brave needs to be super-sized to rate on some invisible scale of courageous acts. Sometimes, the most brave you’ll ever be happens in private. These are the times when your courage is present without being broadcast across social networks, without others cheerleading you on every step of the way, and without a celebratory party at the end of it. It’s here that it’s just you with yourself, showing up in life as best as you can. ⠀
Do you see your strength? Do you see the guts it takes to do what you do? And do you remember to acknowledge yourself for it?"⠀

  • We can try and ignore climate change, but it won’t ignore us. A heartbreaking day for politics, for the planet and for our children. Don’t stop fighting, the world needs us now more than ever. 👊🏼🌎👊🏼
