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.

  • 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.⁣
