  • PEPTALKS // Have you read Issue 40’s interview with Hollywood actor and environmental activist @isabellucas? There are mere days til this one leaves shelves forever, so snap yours up whilst you can – and then Brisbane readers rejoice, because our cover girl's appearing at our upcoming PepTalks event on 28th March! Isabel will be speaking in conversation with @outlanddenim’s Erica Bartle about her passion for conservation and climate change, her drive to speak out on these causes, and her dual life as a Hollywood star and grassroots activist. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
As if Isabel wasn’t enough, she’ll also be joined on the night by Food Connect founder and ex-farmer Robert Pekin, and life coach and minimalist Carly Willoughby-Rolls. The lovely Leah Musch – aka The Unmaterial Girl – will be our MC for the evening, and as usual there’ll be Allpress coffee, delicious food and wine and a goodie bag for everyone! We’re extremely grateful to our friends at @bankaust for partnering with us to bring this event to life. It’ll be an inspirational night to remember, so head to the link in out bio to grab your ticket (and be quick – it’s selling fast!)⁣⁣⁣

  • In a world first, members of the UK parliament have called for a ‘clothing tax’ to curb textile waste. The proposal, dubbed the ‘one penny tax’, would put a levy of one British penny on every new item of clothing, and it's one of several calls to action in a new report on ways to limit fashion’s environmental footprint.⁣
⁣
‘The Interim Report on the Sustainability of the Fashion Industry’ offers a whole host of recommendations for remedying fast-fashion’s ills, including the penalisation of brands with a large footprint; extending a coming ban on virgin plastics to include synthetic fibres; recommending the introduction of darning and mending classes in schools; and a government-enforced ban on landfill and incineration of unused stock – putting a stop to retailers like H&M burning vast quantities of perfectly good clothing.⁣
⁣
For more on the report – including a take on the gulf between Instagram-perfection and retail-reality - head to our website 👉👉👉
  • PEPTALKS IS BACK // Yes, the most inspirational and uplifting night in the calendar is once again on the horizon, with PepTalks taking place in Brisbane on 28th March 2019 thanks to our amazing event partner @bankaust!
