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.

“My #peppermintbuttonupdress is finally finished! This pattern has some beautiful details. I particularly enjoyed sewing my first princess seams. I wore it to a job interview at my local fabric store today, and got the job! So this dress has been an all-round excellent experience.” #peppermintmagazine #peppermintsewingschool #thefabricstore #freesewingpattern #memade #imademyclothes

  • “We always dreamed of running a space that combined our passions for yoga and wholefoods. In 2006 we bought a yoga studio, and a few days later we realised Bryony was pregnant with our daughter Olive. Leo followed in 2009, and in 2010 the building next door to the studio came up for rent and the dream of an integrated yoga and café space became a possibility. We sold our home and everything we had (and begged and borrowed more!) to make it happen...” ☕️
For the next instalment of The Daily Rhythm we’re going behind the counter at @eggoftheuniverse – a Rozelle wholefoods cafe and yoga space that combines serving up nourishment for both body and soul. Head to the website to read about a day in the life of the owner, Harry, and find out how he and his wife turned their long-held dream into a daily reality. ☕️

  • At Tamil Feasts, food is a social anchor, bringing together people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds to share in the food heritage and help build new confidence, pride and lives for these men here in Australia. “Tamil Feasts is very important for us. It’s a good platform for us to meet people, to tell our story and develop ourselves.” Nigethan says. “When I was in [the] detention centre, we didn’t know that food was going to change our lives. But when we started Tamil Feasts, the meal, the food, really changed our lives. Tamil Feasts brought light into our lives. And we get a lot of friends from Tamil Feasts. We learn a lot of language and a lot about [Australian] culture and systems. We learn from the people that come to Tamil Feasts. Our visitors are like family. Every day they look after us. They have given us new life.”

After a violent and traumatic encounter with the Sri Lankan army, Nigethan had to flee to save his life. After spending 6.5 years in detention at Christmas Island, he, along with three other refugee friends Nirma, Niro and Sri, founded @tamilfeasts. Read more in Issue 39 - onsale now.

I started Peppermint 10 years ago with literally nothing but hope. Hope that things – ourselves, the fashion industry, the world – could be better, and that somehow I’d conjure the power to make it so.
